LONDON,UK May 1, 2004 — Widget UK is pleased to unveil two powerful new "GPS In A Box" solutions for the PalmOne organizer platform. Each of these affordably priced bundles includes a PalmOne Tungsten E organizer, a Bluetooth GPS Receiver and powerful ViaMichelin MapSonic software. One bundle ships with the MapSonic software on CD-ROM media, the second with the maps pre-installed to a secure digital memory card. Both bundles come in attractive retail packaging and will be in demand by Windows and Macintosh owners alike.
What differentiates these new Kirrio bundles from their GPS system competitors is the innovative design of the technology: Both use voice-control and visual technology in perfect unison to deliver remarkable satellite-based vehicle navigation and mapping to the Palm platform.
And unlike other mobile GPS systems that require the user to purchase the various components separately, these attractive bundles are totally-integrated road navigation solutions: Everything the modern Road Warrior needs comes bundled in one attractive box, including a PalmOne Tungsten E colour handheld organizer, a Bluetooth GPS Receiver providing wireless connectivity, ViaMichelin’s MapSonic navigation software for Palm (shipping either on CD-ROM or pre-installed to a secure digital card, depending on the bundle purchased), an adjustable support bracket and three convenient vehicle fastening systems.
A Powerful “Go Anywhere” Organizer
The centerpiece of the Kirrio convergence bundle is PalmOne’s Tungsten E organizer. This sleek “go anywhere” device features a host of powerful features, and sports a high resolution 320 by 320 transflective colour screen display, a generous 32 megabytes of on-board memory plus a responsive 126 MHz processor. The Tungsten E also comes equipped with PalmOne’s now-standard SD expansion card slot.
Both Kirrio bundles being offered feature ViaMichelin’s MapSonic navigation software for the Palm OS. Install MapSonic to the Tungsten E, activate the wireless Bluetooth GPS Receiver and you’ll be linked to a series of satellites in minutes. It’s that easy. And voice functionality means hands-free, safe vehicle navigation to your destination with ease.
Michelin’s MapSonic software offers efficient, powerful navigation and map display technology that transforms the PalmOne Tungsten E into a genuine on-board navigation system. Its voice guidance system makes it the perfect traveling companion for anyone journeying across Great Britain or Ireland.
The MapSonic software offers a considerable number of zoom modes, allowing users to see entire countries on-screen right down to a single street with all its details. Michelin’s MapSonic also features accurate street number management, allowing you to locate the exact address you need easily and efficiently.
And you’ll never get lost, thanks to MapSonic’s powerful route calculation technology – It will provide you with the shortest or the quickest route to your destination (including taking into account whether you’re traveling on foot or in your vehicle). Thanks to the awesome capabilities of global positioning technology your route is calculated and then readjusted in real time as you move. And clear, concise voice directions will guide you reliably to your destination –in multiple languages.
MapSonic even includes a handy search function which provides an instant listing of all streets or places that match your search criteria, as well as a direct link to the Tungsten’s built-in address book so you can select departure and arrival points right from your address book’s contact list.
Macintosh Or Windows – Your Choice!
Both Kirrio PalmOne Premium GPS Solution bundles are Windows-ready right out of the box. Apple iMac and iBook owners will want to check out the secure digital media card bundle, which features the MapSonic software pre-installed to a secure digital card. Just pop the card into the Tungsten E and start navigating. It’s that easy!
