Navizon Announces Version Available for Windows Smartphones
Mexens Technology has announced the launch of the newest version of the Navizon software for use with Windows Mobile Smartphones. This new version of Navizon offers an increased accuracy when using cellular signals for positioning

In addition to Windows smartphones, Navizon's software is also currently compatible with Windows Mobile Pocket PCs and Symbian-base smartphones. The software is free for non-commercial use.

The Navizon software works by triangulating signal measurements from cell towers and Wi-Fi access points. Once a map of the wireless landscape for a certain area has been created with a GPS device, members can sync this data and share it with the rest of the Navizon network, thereby allowing other users to enjoy a software-only positioning system with their wireless device, completely independent of carrier.

In addition, Navizon is adding new features that allow members new ways of sharing information. These include three innovative features: the Buddy Tracker, Local Search and Geotag.

The Buddy Tracker allows members within a group to share their location with other group members on an opt-in basis. The Local Search feature allows users to search for specific entities within a specific geographical location. The Geotag allows members to post information based upon a specific geographic location, such as a restaurant or business, thus creating a geographically based blogging system.
