Vodafone Italy launches GPS Navigation solution for Pocket PC and Symbian
The Vodafone Navigator, a branded GPS navigation service for smartphones and wireless PDAs. Powered by Webraska's SmartZone Navigation and SmartZone Geospatial Platform was launched by Vodafone Italy.

Vodafone Navigator "All-in-one" packages target the consumer retail market and are priced at EUR 199, comprising the navigation software, a Bluetooth GPS receiver, a universal car cradle, as well as one year subscription to the service.

The Vodafone Navigator offers subscribers real-time traffic alerts & route optimization, Traffic information is dynamically integrated enabling push traffic alerts and generation of a new traffic-optimised route, if available. In addition, users can display the list of traffic events impacting their route, view the distance to the event and read the event description.

The software also offers a feature called Pedestrian Navigation: it provides street routing and mapping, either using GPS real time positioning or walk speed simulation.
