[palmOne adds two global-positioning system (GPS) navigation solutions to its lineup including a GPS Car Kit and a redesigned palmOne GPS Navigator for cyclists and pedestrians.]
Miilpitas, CA -- Responding to the growing interest in handheld-based GPS solutions, palmOne is adding the GPS Car Kit to its available solutions. It features an integrated GPS receiver that mounts to a car windshield or dashboard and holds a Tungsten(TM) E2 or Tungsten T5 handheld securely in place, while a vehicle power adaptor provides power to the GPS receiver and the handheld. The included customized TomTom Navigator 5 software works seamlessly with the GPS receiver cradle, and a built-in speaker makes voice-guided directions audible over road noise. The palmOne GPS Car Kit is scheduled to be available in August for $249.99. A $100 rebate will be available for a limited time to U.S. customers who purchase a Tungsten E2 handheld with the GPS Car Kit.
A redesigned palmOne GPS Navigator soon will be available for use with the LifeDrive(TM) mobile manager, Treo(TM) 650 smartphone, and Tungsten E2 and Tungsten T5 handhelds. The GPS Navigator's compact Bluetooth enabled receiver is suited for cyclists and pedestrians, as well as for use in vehicles. This product also uses TomTom Navigator 5 software plus Tele Atlas map data to provide real-time location information, turn-by-turn directions, maps in 2-D and 3-D, and millions of points of interest. The palmOne GPS Navigator is scheduled to be available in July for $249.99.
