MobileNavigator 6 for Symbian S60 and the Windows Mobile Operating System.
NAVIGON presented new navigation solutions for mobile telephones at 3GSM in Barcelona. Among the products being launched are the award-winning MobileNavigator 6 for mobile phones based on Symbian S60 (2nd and 3rd Edition) and the Windows Mobile operating system. The new software transforms more phones than ever before into navigation devices - be they for cars, bicycles or pedestrians. In addition, a wide range of functions makes navigation by mobile phone even easier to use.
The new version of MobileNavigator 6 for Symbian S60 can be used with more mobile phones than ever before. All maps and programme files are pre-installed on the memory card supplied. Just a few settings and a brief registration via an online connection are all that is needed to upgrade a mobile phone to a navigation device. If the mobile phone does not yet have an integrated GPS receiver, an additional module with a wireless Bluetooth connection can provide accurate positioning. All the functions of MobileNavigator 6 will then be available on the phone, including "Signpost Display", the "Go Home" function and "Speed Assistant".
MobileNavigator 6 has been specially adapted by NAVIGON for the smaller display of mobile phones. The new arrow display guarantees accurate directions in a very compact space, and short commands make it easier to operate the smart navigator phone. A good measure of fun is included as well: FriendFinder enables users to forward their current position to friends via text message. Meeting up after shopping, for example, or for dates in unknown territory then becomes child's play. In addition, the European maps contain numerous Points of Interest such as restaurants, filling stations and tourist sights, making them convenient and quick to find.
Andreas Westhoff, Chief Sales Officer of NAVIGON AG, sees enormous development potential for navigation applications on mobile phones: "Thanks to their tremendous distribution, mobile telephones are an ideal navigation device. We are convinced that navigation by mobile phone or smartphone will open up a whole new range of applications, including for pedestrians or use on holiday trips. Night owls and tourist will be thrilled!"
