Mexens Technology today announced the availability of its flagship software on Blackberry devices. Thanks to Navizon, owners of Blackberries can now:
- see where they are on a map and easily find their way to their next destination
- see the whereabouts of their friends or coworkers right from their mobile device
- search for businesses such as bars or restaurants right around where they are.
All this regardless of their carrier since Navizon works on any wireless network and in any country.
But what makes Navizon even more exciting is that a GPS device is not even required to benefit from these very useful features. By using wireless signals triangulation, Navizon's Virtual-GPS is able to spot your location on a map thereby enabling a myriad of Location Based services on your phone.
"The release of Navizon for Blackberry devices is a very important development for our community of users," said Cyril Houri, Founder and CEO of Mexens Technology. "By supporting this new platform, Navizon is now accessible to a vast majority of smartphone and PDA owners, making Location-Based services on wireless handhelds a reality even for users who don't have a GPS- enabled phone."
This new version of Navizon is also bundled with MGMaps, a powerful mobile mapping system working on any Java enabled phones.
In addition to Blackberry, Navizon is also compatible with Windows Mobile and Symbian devices.
Navizon is freely available for download: simply go to http://www.navizon.com from your wireless device. Navizon's Virtual GPS is available for a free 15 day evaluation period and can be licensed for $24.99 after the trial's expiration.
