PalmOne and TomTom Bluetooth GPS
PalmOne announced the GPS Navigator by palmOne. The Bluetooth enabled navigator can be paired with Tungsten T3 and Zire 72 handhelds. It provides users with maps and directions, including voice-guided turn-by-turn instructions.

TomTom provides the GPS software. Special features include a wide array of street-level and highway maps for the entire United States and Canada, customized door-to-door navigation and voice-guided turn-by-turn instructions.

"palmOne and TomTom are natural partners because both companies aim to create products that are easy for our customers to use," said Jocelyn Vigreux, president of TomTom. "By working with palmOne, the handheld market leader, we are moving closer to our goal of making GPS navigation accessible for every driver and every car."

After a location has been identified, the GPS Navigator by palmOne can:

  • Display detailed street and highway maps for the entire United States and Canada;
  • Customize directions using door-to-door navigation;
  • Give voice-guided turn-by-turn instructions;
  • Automatically recalculate the route after a wrong turn;
  • Instantly re-route to avoid a roadblock or congestion; and
  • Highlight millions of points of interest, including gas stations, airports, shops and other destinations.
