Next-gen Mobile Navigation Technology
Posted: 02-Apr-2006 [Source: Telmap]

[Telmap's Mobile Optimized Navigation Data (MOND) technology offers moving map displays and quick rerouting to keep you moving in the right direction avoiding unnecessary delays while you wait for your system to recalculate a route.]

CTIA, Las Vegas -- Telmap Inc. announced a next-generation technology for mobile navigation that delivers more useful, timely and reliable navigation data to cellphones, BlackBerrys and other handhelds, including clear and easy-to-read sliding and rotating maps that move with the user's vehicle. The company's patented Mobile Optimized Navigation Data (MOND) technology conquers the technical and usability challenges associated with the small display size and limited resources of many handsets, making it possible to download and present navigation and map data more professionally and efficiently than ever before.

The MOND methodology optimizes the transfer of navigation and map data to the user's wireless device for maximum usability and efficient network performance. When the route is calculated, the response dataset includes not only the route requested but also all relevant roads in the surrounding area. This large dataset is then re-formatted, heavily compressed on the server side using the MOND technology, and made available locally to the user's device without the need to return to the server for extra information.

Benefits include:

-- Faster route adjustment when the user makes a wrong turn or otherwise deviates from the original route, because no additional data download is necessary. Instead of scolding users for straying from the original instructions, the system automatically presents the adjusted route based on the information that is already available.

-- Data availability even when talking or leaving the wireless service area, enabling users to make phone calls while navigating and still use the navigation system even if they move out of network coverage.

-- Moving map displays that transition to each new map area as the vehicle proceeds along the route without the need to download additional information. The sliding map zooms in and shows a maneuver map on each turn.

-- Maximum user satisfaction, based on the ability to deliver a truly professional, high-quality navigation solution with clear advantages over other systems.

These benefits join other unique Telmap capabilities including global map coverage, true pedestrian routes optimized for users on foot, and support for BREW, Java, Windows, BlackBerry and Symbian platforms.

Telmap CEO Oren Nissim said, "For the first time, mid-range cellphones, smartphones and BlackBerrys can have GPS navigation with truly high-quality rendering, map matching and natural movement from map area to map area."

Telmap will be demo'ing its MOND technology on the newest Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Sanyo, Motorola and BlackBerry models at the CTIA Wireless 2006 show that begins April 5 in Las Vegas.
