Foothillo Ranch, CA -- Navman, a leading designer and manufacturer of world-class global positioning systems (GPS), communication and marine products, announced today the latest addition to its innovative line of GPS products for the consumer electronics market. The Navman 4460 is a voice-enabled, Bluetooth(tm) GPS receiver designed for Palm(r)OS 5-based handhelds (e.g. select devices from PalmOne, Inc. and Sony). The device is powered by the latest version of Navman's award winning SmartST(tm) Professional navigation software and offers consumers the most comprehensive self-contained guidance solution on the market. The GPS 4460 was unveiled at the 2004 International Consumer Electronics Show.

SmartST Version II provides detailed street-level mapping for all of North America, including Hawaii and Canada. The software is fully automatic and provides voice (male or female) guidance, in addition to visual driving instructions. Features include address-to-address routing, Back-on-track rerouting when off-course and an extensive points-of-interest (POI) library. The POI database contains: retail shops, entertainment venues, local amenities, restaurants, bars, buildings and monuments, hotels, public transportation, gas stations, garages, sports facilities, institutions, medical services and natural attractions, allowing users to plan routes more easily and effectively. SmartST options provide the ability to find the shortest or quickest route to any destination, set locations as favorites, select from a list of recent address entries, and hear spoken instructions in one of seven languages. Large display icons and easy-to-read maps provide an operator-friendly interface for added safety while driving. SmartST is also optimized for palmOne's new Tungsten(tm) T3 handheld, allowing users to take advantage of the device's full 320x480 screen in both portrait and landscape modes.

The 4460 device employs a high-performance GPS receiver combined with an embedded, Class 2 Bluetooth transceiver, which facilitates the wireless communication of accurate satellite navigation information to the handheld device. Once the SmartST software is installed onto the user's computer, it can be downloaded to the PDA via synchronization, and map, voice and POI data is stored on an SD Card. A blinking LED displays connectivity status and low battery indication. The complete GPS 4460 solution includes a wireless GPS antenna, SmartST Professional navigation software, a vehicle power adapter, vehicle mounting brackets, and both an armband and lanyard for outdoor personal use. The unit operates for 30 hours on 3 AAA Alkaline batteries (included).

"Navman PDA companion products are designed to allow consumers to leverage their existing mobile computing investments," said George Arnott, president of Navman USA Land Products Division.

"With the new 4460 and our SmartST software, Palm OS 5 users can add the latest in satellite navigation to their handheld's list of capabilities."

"PalmOne(tm) handhelds offer the perfect platform for mobile navigation," said Anthony Armenta, director of software product management at palmOne, Inc. "By combining the Navman 4460 hardware, SmartST navigation software and one of our Tungsten T series handhelds, consumers can get the full-featured navigation experience they're looking for in an ultra-portable package."


The Navman GPS 4460 will be available for purchase at electronics stores nationwide in February and will be competitively priced at U.S. $299.95.
