Telmap To Demo Mobile Navigation Solutions at Three CTIA Exhibits, Showcasing Different Capabilities in Telmap, NAVTEQ and Nokia Booths

Telmap Execs Will Also Serve on Two CTIA Panels

(PresseBox) ( LOS ANGELES, )
Telmap Inc. will be showcasing its mobile mapping and navigation solutions at three exhibits at the CTIA Wireless IT and Entertainment conference that opens today in Los Angeles. The company's strong showing reflects its growing presence in the U.S. market and the broad capabilities of its technology, including a new Telmap-delivered real-time traffic service that will be demo'ed at the NAVTEQ booth as well as deployment of the core Telmap navigation system on the newest Nokia smartphones.

At the Telmap booth (#1006), the company will demonstrate Telmap Navigator, its advanced turn-by-turn navigation solution with moving map displays and other key usability benefits, as well as the custom-branded MapQuest Navigator version announced by AOL-MapQuest earlier this year.

At the NAVTEQ booth (#618), Telmap will showcase the delivery of real-time traffic information implementing the NAVTEQ Traffic MobileT service being unveiled today. Telmap is the first vendor to incorporate the NAVTEQ Traffic Mobile service - including continuously updated unplanned and planned incident information, like accidents and construction plus average traffic flow speeds - into a comprehensive mobile navigation solution.

At the Nokia booth (#530), Telmap will demonstrate the deployment of Telmap Navigator on Nokia Nseries multimedia computers and Nokia Eseries enterprise devices. Telmap recently announced that Telmap Navigator will be pre-installed on three Nokia Eseries devices in the UK for free user trials, indicating the value of mobile navigation to business users.

In addition, Telmap CEO Orem Nissim has been invited to speak at CTIA's "LBS & Entertainment: Where Do They Intersect" panel scheduled at 3:30 pm on September 13, and Telmap is also serving on today's "Convergence of Technology and Content" panel at the NAVTEQ LBS Developer Conference.

"Mobile GPS navigation is rapidly becoming an essential application for handsets in both the consumer and business markets, and our expertise in the space is clearly illustrated by the fact that we have attracted partners like NAVTEQ and Nokia," Nissim said. "The implementations we are demonstrating at CTIA represent the most advanced and easy-to-use mobile navigation technology in the industry, and they show how the technology can add value for consumers and carriers alike."

Real-time navigation and location-based information

Telmap Navigator turns each phone into a handheld real-time mobile navigation and information guide, ideal for both in-car and pedestrian navigation. It guides subscribers along the best route to their desired destination using voice instructions and high-quality onscreen maps, with turn-by-turn instructions for both in-car and pedestrian navigation.

It provides real-time content, such as traffic, as well as information and direct dialing to millions of points of interest (POIs) such as restaurants, hotel, gas stations, theaters and more. Telmap Navigator also enables users to share POI addresses and other information with friends and colleagues via text message.

The Telmap Navigator solution is based on Telmap's patented, new generation MOND (Mobile Optimized Navigation Data) technology, which optimizes the transfer of navigation and map data from a central server to users' wireless devices. MOND technology utilizes advanced compression to deliver more complete, useful, timely and reliable navigation data to mobile handsets.
