Fodor Guides now available for handhelds
No more flipping pages or fumbling with maps: with the iFodor's product, travelers will now be able to access award-winning destination information on their PDA.

Using a mapping application, iFodor's allows you to plan your stay in any of nine popular business and leisure cities around the world: Boston, Chicago, London, New Orleans, New York, Paris, Rome, San Francisco, and Washington D.C. After a simple, one-time download onto their PDA, travelers will be able to find and read Fodor's listings for restaurants, hotels, nightlife, and shopping information. Easy-to-use icons help to locate choices on zoom-in/zoom-out maps, and travelers can plan routes and read and view step-by-step walking directions. iFodor's provides complete Fodor's sightseeing content.

Fodor's has partnered with Gate 5 AG, a software company specializing in the development of technology and applications for intelligent mobile guides, to design the mapping technology and interface. TeleAtlas has contributed the extensive map data offered on iFodors.

iFodor's guides are currently available on Palm OS 5.x, Palm OS 4.1.x, Windows CE, and Windows Mobile Pocket PC. In addition to being sold on Fodors.com, the guides are also available for purchase as an online download via Handango.com.
