Vodafone Announces Mobile Navigation and New 3G Mobile Handsets
Vodafone Japan is introducing new 3G handsets manufactured by Toshiba, and at the same time is announcing the launch the Vodafone live! NAVI GPS navigation service from early October 2005.

Vodafone live! NAVI enables customers to check their current location, find the best routes to destinations and send messages to other parties with information on current locations or destinations.

In addition to service availability in Japan, Vodafone live! NAVI can also be used overseas for accessing maps, routes, local information and tourist guides, making it Japan’s first network-assisted GPS mobile handset navigation service that can be used on roaming networks.

The Toshiba 903T comes pre-installed with the ‘ZENRIN its-moNavi’ navigation application so customers can easily experience Vodafone live! NAVI. ZENRIN its-moNAVI offers a series of services, including navigation for routes with maximum overhead covering and minimal stair climbing, best routes based on the weather or one’s mood, and car navigation that accesses real time traffic congestion information via VICS (Vehicle Information and Communication System).

The VICS system receives traffic information from FM multiplex broadcasting and road beacons, and displays this information in text or graphical form.

The Toshiba 903T is WCDMA mobile phone supporting tri-band GSM (900/1800/1900 MHz). It has a 2.4-inch QVGA (240 x 320 pixel) LCD for map viewing, and a built-in auto-focus 1.92 megapixel digital camera. It is 10MB internal memory can be expanded through SD cards.
