New York City (PRWEB) November 30, 2007
More than 1,000 North American addresses of Michelin-recommended restaurants and hotels are now available on ViaMichelin.com, a leading international travel planning and mapping Web site. For routes that include New York City or the greater San Francisco Bay area, ViaMichelin.com now includes points of interest and locations from the two Michelin Guides. These points of interest can then be downloaded to a ViaMichelin Navigation X-970 GPS unit.
Restaurant and hotel content from the two newest Michelin Guides, recently launched in Los Angeles and Las Vegas, will be added to ViaMichelin.com in the spring of 2008.
"The ViaMichelin Navigation X-970 portable GPS is the perfect holiday gift for the 'foodies' on your list," said Frederic Radigue, Business Development Manager for ViaMichelin. "Use the Michelin Guides as a companion to plan a trip or visit a restaurant and simply send the address from the ViaMichelin site straight to your X-970 GPS."
Thanks to a rigorous selection process that is applied independently and consistently around the world, the Michelin Guide has become an international benchmark in gourmet dining. The selection is made by anonymous, professional inspectors who are Michelin employees and is based on the same working methods in all countries.
