Telenav as added Yelp ratings and reviews to its Scout GPS Link (SGL) mobile. The addition of Yelp content provides SGL users with an easy way to locate highly rated restaurants and local businesses from their in-car entertainment system when connected to SGL.
Partnering with Yelp represents Telenav’s next step in providing consumers with an enhanced connected-car experience. In addition to Telenav’s in-car ads and in-car commerce offerings, integrating Yelp into Scout GPS is an important step in the company’s efforts to grow its leadership position in offering consumers the in-car experiences that are changing the future of connected cars.
“Yelp is the most recognized business-review service in the world, and now Telenav provides drivers of SGL-connected cars with easy access to the reviews and ratings they value most, right inside their in-car entertainment system,” said Sal Dhanani, Telenav Co-President, Automotive Business Unit. “It’s a win-win for both drivers and select Telenav auto OEMs. Drivers have the benefit of Yelp ratings integrated into their in-car navigation system, while those auto OEMs can continue to offer current and relevant content through their in-car entertainment systems.”
