Navizon Unveils New Model for Its Windows Mobile Community
Mexens Technology has announced the implementation of a Reward System that allows consumers who use a GPS device with Navizon to earn reward points in exchange for mapping Wi-Fi and cellular landscapes.

“The idea behind the Navizon Model is simple: some users who have a GPS device are mapping the wireless landscape in their neighborhoods so that others who don’t have a GPS will be able to use a positioning system by triangulating Wi-Fi and/or Cellular signals,” explains Cyril Houri, founder of Mexens Technology. “Starting today, users who map data will receive cash rewards from those who don’t contribute data but want to utilize the information.”

There will be two versions of Navizon:
  • Navizon GPS Free requires a GPS to work, is free, and allows users the opportunity to earn cash rewards;
  • Navizon Premium (US$$19.99) does not require a GPS, but rather simulates a virtual GPS by using Wi-Fi and Cellular positioning only.

    Users will earn points use Navizon with a GPS device. Users will collect 2 points per Wi-Fi Access Point mapped and 10 points per cell tower mapped. Mexens will pay US$19.99 for every 10,000 point, that will be sent to the beneficiary’s Paypal account.

    Current GPS users are not impacted except for the fact that they can now earn points and dollars. Users who don’t have a GPS and were using Navizon previously can still use Navizon free of charge. Users who don’t have a GPS and are just joining the network will need to pay a fee, however they can use Navizon Premium free of charge for 15 days with an evaluation version.

    The reward plan is also retroactive for those who have already mapped data via Navizon.
