San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 26, 2006
Cell phones with Global Positioning System (GPS) functionality have been available for some time. However, recent product developments targeting parents and travelers are helping to boost the popularity of GPS services on cell phones with consumers and businesses alike.
Child tracking services like Sprint's Family Locator Service and Verizon's Wireless Chaperone service let parents know where their kids are, while products and services like Verizon's VZ Navigator and navigation systems from Sprint PCS, TeleNav and Garmin offer basic mobile GPS navigation systems that put drivers on the right track.
For people who don't yet have a GPS-enabled phone, LetsTalk also sells the Nokia Wireless GPS Module with an internal antenna and software to help guide users through twisting side streets and unfamiliar avenues. This module connects wirelessly to a compatible phone, PC or PDA, using Bluetooth wireless technology.
"Multi-function cell phones have long been a part of everyday life, and now GPS services that help families and drivers are available in cell phones," said Delly Tamer, founder and CEO of LetsTalk. "We are in the early stages of seeing exciting new GPS applications and services. Today, it's navigation systems and keeping track of family members – but we expect there are many exciting new innovations that have yet to come down the road."
