TomTom, a leading provider of personal navigation systems, today announced TomTom Navigator USA for Palm -- a cost-effective and flexible navigation system. Now you will never get lost again thanks to TomTom GPS, the industry's most comprehensive door-to-door personal navigation system.
"Mobile navigation is becoming increasingly important to our customers," said Anthony Armenta, director of software product management at palmOne. "The combination of the TomTom wireless GPS solution and a Bluetooth-enabled Tungsten handheld from palmOne makes for a valuable mobile GPS solution."
Transform your Palm into a powerful, accurate and reliable door-to-door navigation system. With TomTom, your Palm is a 3D color display pad for maps. Voice-guided instructions mean you can keep your eyes on the road. TomTom Navigator for Palm is based on the latest, most accurate turn-by-turn maps available from Tele Atlas.
