    Destinator Technologies Unveils Live Navigation-Based Mobile Services
    September 19, 2005 | 12:02 PM

    Destinator Technologies, the leading provider of personalized navigation software and live mobile navigation-based services today announced its Destinator platform. Destinator takes personal navigation to the next level by making it possible to bring personalized content to mobile devices, which automatically changes based on the user's location at any time. This revolutionary new generation of navigation software for mobile users debuts at the prestigious DEMOfall conference, which is being held in Huntington Beach, California, September 19-21.

    The Destinator platform is the only navigation system to provide up-to-the-minute, personalized content that automatically changes as users of Destinator move from one location to another whether traveling by vehicle or by foot. Destinator achieves this through the patented way it combines highly accurate GPS navigation technology with wireless-network-based content and server-based preferences. The Destinator platform includes Destinator Personal Navigation client software for Smartphones, personal digital assistants (PDAs), and personal navigation devices (PNDs) and the Destinator Anywhere Server for delivering personalized, navigation-based content.

    The unique interaction between the Destinator client and server software to exchange information enables a new era of dynamic, navigation-based mobile experiences, including:

    Automating information on favorite restaurants, weather conditions, sporting events, and other subjects of interest based on the user's current location, on the time of day, and on personal preferences.

    The ability for friends and colleagues to see each other's location on a map and show progress toward destinations, to share "favorite" locations, and to exchange current locations and directions via instant messaging.

    Dynamically updating driving directions based on real-time traffic and road conditions and even upon friend's changing locations.

    "Until now, navigation has been a static and relatively generic experience for consumers based on maps printed from Websites or months-old information from CDs," said Chris Shipley, executive producer of the DEMO Conferences. "By combining navigation with real-time content, a consumer's location, and that person's individual preferences, Destinator Technologies is enabling the delivery of customized, actionable navigation to consumers and their community of friends and family."

    Live Navigation Solution Builds on Proven, Patented Destinator Software

    Destinator Technologies offers the industry's most comprehensive suite of highly customizable, navigation-based solutions for consumers and enterprises, and its software is the number one choice of OEMs and ODMs worldwide. The Destinator platform combines the powerful Destinator Anywhere Server with next-generation versions of the company's patented award-winning navigation software for Smartphones, Pocket PC PDA's, and on-board PND's.

    With the seamless integration of cutting-edge mobile navigation technologies and precise map information, Destinator provides easy and convenient operation, and a rich, comprehensive set of features, including:

    Intelligent routing

    Optimum route planning for multiple destinations

    Millions of points-of-interest (POI)

    Route optimization based on real-time traffic information

    Multiple language support

    SMS support

    An extensive library of map information updated regularly

    "For mobile content to be meaningful, it has to be tuned to a person's preferences and it must automatically adapt to continually changing locations and conditions," says Jeff Kukowski, senior vice president of Destinator Technologies. "The Destinator platform delivers on this promise by empowering carriers and device manufacturers to usher in a new generation of dynamic customized navigation-based services to mobile users."
