TomTom Launches TomTom NAVIGATOR 5 for PDAs
CeBIT, 10 March 2005 – TomTom, a leading navigation solution provider, today announced a new and improved version of its award-winning navigation software solution, TomTom NAVIGATOR 5 for PDAs. An advanced and powerful navigation tool, TomTom NAVIGATOR 5 will turn users’ PDAs into a personal assistant on the road.
TomTom NAVIGATOR 5 (available in both a wired and wireless version) offers users updated features for easy and stress-free travel, in the car or on foot. TomTom NAVIGATOR 5 features an improved Itinerary Planner for planning multi-destination trips, seamless integration with a PDA’s contacts folder, customisable Points of Interest (POI’s), the latest maps* and the new TomTom PLUS services. NAVIGATOR 5 is TomTom’s most comprehensive navigation solution for PDAs to date.
“NAVIGATOR 5 is far beyond any other navigation solution available on a handheld device and is a must have for any PDA user,” said Harold Goddijn, TomTom’s chief executive officer. “New features such as enhanced map coverage, downloadable maps, as well as the ability to plan journeys according to the quickest and shortest routes will ensure our customers the same impeccable navigation experience they have come to expect from TomTom.”
The wireless version of NAVIGATOR 5 will also feature TomTom’s new Bluetooth tm GPS receiver (a small and lightweight device that can be placed in the pocket or a bag). This provides better than ever sensitivity for picking up GPS signals.
With the improved Itinerary Planner users can now also plan more complex routes to multiple destinations and add more stopping points on the journey. Customers simply need to pre-programme the stopping points before they depart and TomTom NAVIGATOR 5 will calculate the best route, incorporating each stop on the way to the end destination.
In addition, seamless integration into the PDAs contact folder allows users to plan journeys with information taken directly from their address book for improved functionality and intuitiveness.
TomTom NAVIGATOR 5 includes:
- TomTom NAVIGATOR 5 software and a pre-installed map of your region on SD card
- TomTom Bluetooth GPS receiver (only with wireless version)
- AC home charger and/or cigarette lighter charger for the GPS receiver
