Chicago, IL, October 15th, 2002 – Mapopolis.Com, Inc. announced the release of Mapopolis Navigator, the PDA mapping software company’s latest addition to its product line.  Navigator, available immediately from the company’s website, mapopolis.com, provides turn-by-turn “heads-up” navigation right on any Windows Powered Pocket PC device. 


The software generates a route between selected start and end points or from the GPS-supplied current location to a selected address.  Before each turn, Navigator provides audio and visual alerts. Should a turn be missed or a wrong turn be made, the software instantaneously reroutes the driver.


Navigator connects with Mapopolis PlaceGuides which provide business locations that can be used as start or end points.  Pocket Outlook contacts can also be used as start or end points. 


Mapopolis Vice President Jeremy Straub believes that “the real benefit of this product is that it’s completely portable.  Unlike a car-mounted system, you can use the PDA at the office to manage your contacts, maintain a database or play a game.  When you need to drive somewhere, you bring the device to your car, connect a GPS device and you have a navigation system – for less than $800.”


“Microsoft envisions the Pocket PC to be completely functional for people ‘on the move’— whether in the office, on the road or at the market,” said Ed Suwanjindar, product manager for the Mobile Devices Division at Microsoft Corp. (NYSE: MSFT) “Navigator from Mapopolis.Com provides users with the necessary features to be fully mobile, en route to any location.”   


Navigator is available for purchase from www.mapopolis.com for $89.95.  Navigator includes Navigation Technologies data, the same as most in-car systems.  Navigator works on all Pocket PC devices and requires a NMEA-compatible GPS device.


Founded in 1999, Mapopolis.Com, Inc. has become the technology leader in mapping and navigation software for PDAs and other portable devices.  Building upon the original release of Mapopolis for PalmOS in 1999 which was limited to locating streets and intersections, the company has expanded to offer a full line of products which provide dynamic navigation rivaling expensive in-car systems.  Mapopolis customers include General Electric Interlogix, Police & Fire departments, the United States Probation Office and hundreds of thousands of consumers nation-wide.  Customers use Mapopolis on their Pocket PC, PalmOS or RIM/Blackberry device to find addresses, generate directions and provide “heads-up” dynamic navigation.
