Rand McNally & Company, North America's biggest commercial map company, is rolling out a turn-by-turn, voice-guided navigation service for GPS-enabled mobile phones. Curiously named MONA (for MObile NAvigator), the service costs $9.99 a month.

Mated to a computer-based online application, MONA provides a number of features that let you use your computer to help manage your nav service, including tools for entering your destination addresses online for automatic downloading to your phone, and a trip planning function.

Currently the service is only available for Nextel users of Motorola phones, but expect broader availability to follow soon. For more info on the service, follow the link.
