The Swedish navigation system provider Appello and the Italian telecom distributor Aldinet S.p.A. are launching Macrom Cruiser, a state-of-the-art mobile GPS navigation solution with unlimited access to the 2007 premium guides from Veronelli.
Macrom Cruiser is a fully Macrom-branded GPS navigation solution that provides an all-inclusive navigation experience on a wide range of handsets from leading manufacturers such as Nokia, Sony Ericsson, BlackBerry and HTC. Customers can take advantage of navigation with voice instructions and 3D maps, integrated Italian real-time traffic information, safety camera alerts and the full 2007 selection of restaurants, hotels and wines from Veronelli.
"We are excited about the possibility of offering mobile navigation from Appello as part of our product range. We now have access to an innovative and high-quality navigation service.
