Mobile Crossing announces WayPoint Pocket PC based Navigation System
Mobile Crossing announced the WayPoint family of navigation systems. The product features built-in Navteq maps, navigation software based around a customized version of the Mapopolis routing engine as well as one-touch access to some important features to enhance driver safety.

The WayPoint is an all-in-one solution with vehicle mounts, home charger and cradle as well as all the maps for the customer's home region built into the device out of the box.

The WayPoint provides all the features expected of a high-end navigation system. This includes spoken directions, full color moving maps, touch screen, personal landmarks, toll road avoider and the most built-in maps and POIs of any PDA based device on the market today.

Features unique to WayPoint include real-time weather maps and forecasting, real-time traffic reports with one-click-detour, automatic Bluetooth GPS configuration, TurnAlert and GPS Demand Paging.

The Mobile Crossing WayPoint is available in two versions. The entry-level WayPoint 100 and the Bluetooth-enabled WayPoint 200. The WayPoint 100 targets cost-conscious consumers and does not include Bluetooth. The higher-end WayPoint 200 features self-configuring Bluetooth GPS and comes with a one-year subscription to traffic and weather services. The WayPoint 200 is capable of connecting to the internet on the road via available Bluetooth mobile phones. Once connected, the device displays real-time weather and traffic.
