[Palm announces the Bluetooth enabled GPS Navigator for use with Tungsten(tm) and Zire(tm) 72 handhelds.]

New York -- palmOne, Inc. is turning handhelds into personal and vehicle navigation solutions. The world's leading maker of handheld computers and maker of highly acclaimed smartphones today announced GPS Navigator by palmOne. The Bluetooth(R) technology-enabled navigator is paired easily with Tungsten(TM) T3 and Zire(TM) 72 handhelds. It provides users with reliable and easy-to-follow maps and directions based on the latest global satellite technology. With voice-guided turn-by-turn instructions, drivers using the GPS Navigator by palmOne can now focus on driving to their destinations and not worry about getting lost or stopping to look at a map.

How It Works

The Bluetooth technology-enabled receiver sits on the car dashboard, where it identifies the car's position using at least three satellites. By communicating with the GPS receiver via Bluetooth, the palmOne(TM) handheld obtains real-time location information and displays 2D or 3D maps by TomTom.(1) Using the handheld's high-resolution screen, these maps automatically show the receiver's (and hence, the car's) current location.

Why You Won't Get Lost

After a location has been identified, the GPS Navigator by palmOne can:

-- Display detailed street and highway maps for the entire United States and Canada;

-- Customize directions using door-to-door navigation;

-- Give voice-guided turn-by-turn instructions;

-- Automatically recalculate the route after a wrong turn;

-- Instantly re-route to avoid a roadblock or congestion; and

-- Highlight millions of points of interest, including gas stations, airports, shops and other destinations.

The $299 product includes palmOne's Bluetooth GPS receiver, TomTom Navigator software for the entire United States and Canada, a vehicle device cradle with windshield mounting bracket and recharging cables for the palmOne handheld and GPS receiver.
