Rand McNally Turns Mobile Phones Into Portable GPS Navigation Systems
Motorists who don’t want to buy pricey in-car navigation systems now have an inexpensive alternative. Rand McNally introduced Rand McNally MONA (Mobile Navigator), a mobile phone-based navigation system that puts reliable directions at drivers’ fingertips.
A downloadable application with a low monthly fee of $9.99, Rand McNally MONA turns an ordinary wireless phone into a portable, global positioning system (GPS)-enabled, turn-by-turn, voice-guided navigation device. The easy-to-use wireless service requires no additional contracts or equipment.

Rand McNally MONA allows motorists to identify and navigate their routes, as well as find unfamiliar locations, quickly and reliably. Clear voice prompts guide drivers with accurate, turn-by-turn driving directions to their specified destinations. MONA also automatically alerts and reroutes drivers who miss or make an incorrect turn.

An easy-to-use application, MONA offers several convenient methods for entering destination addresses, including the ability to plan and manage trips online from a home or office computer. Users can enter all their destination addresses online, which are then automatically downloaded to the user’s phone. With a handy list of addresses saved to their phones, drivers can get into their cars, quickly select their destinations and be on their way.

“With Rand McNally MONA, anyone who needs to get from place to place can access reliable GPS navigation affordably using the cell phones they already have, without spending thousands of dollars on an in-car navigation system,” said Robert Apatoff, president and chief executive officer of Rand McNally.
