Editorial Review

With the Tom Tom Navigator 6 Software with Maps of the US and Canada (DVD) and Bluetooth GPS Receiver you never need to be lost again, wherever you are, whatever you are doing. Tom Tom's Navigator 6 software is designed for people who already own a PDA that supports Bluetooth, and don't want to buy a separate Tom Tom navigator and GPS unit. This package provides a Bluetooth receiver to give your PDA GPS functionality, and all the Navigator 6 software with maps of the complete US and Canada on a DVD, which once installed on your PDA will let you know not only where you are going, but exactly how best to get there.

The Tom Tom Navigator 6 software is not only effortless to install, but easy to use with a touch-screen user menu that gives you an intuitive navigation experience, and an inherent portability that lets you take it with you anywhere, whether in your car, on your bike, or on foot. The Tom Tom Navigator 6 software has complete maps of the United States, including Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico, as well as all the Canadian provinces. This software gives you the convenience of thousands of pre-installed Points of Interest from restaurants to gas stations, allowing you to search by proximity to your current location, along your route, near a specific city and more, as well as letting you plan your route to fit your requirements, be they quickest, shortest, avoiding toll roads, or many others.

Navigator 6 not only guides you from door to door, but can navigate directly to contacts from your PDA address book, complete with stopovers and itinerary planning for routing to multiple destinations while adding stopping points. The user-friendly interface features a tip system for when you are just getting started, an optional compass display, and the ability to show a route demonstration so you can better know what things are going to look like in advance.

Tom Tom's Navigator 6 system provides you with crystal clear 2D or 3D graphics, in a brilliant 65,000 colors and "Nightview" for optimized visibility. This navigation system includes realistic visual instructions that replicate road signs to make them easier to follow, and a pedestrian-centric map option that lets you view your position with a fixed position in 2D that can be zoomed in and out for better orientation when you are navigating on foot. Navigator 6 features friendly north-up navigation for easier orientation, automatic route recalculation if a user takes a wrong turn, and auto-scaling software so it will fit any PDA screen. Suitable for almost anybody, the user interface application comes with support for some 22 languages covering virtually all of Europe from Turkish to Flemish, Lithuanian to Catalan, while the spoken directions come in 37 different languages that include with the European languages such options as Chinese, Thai, Japanese and more.

Full of smart extras and additional options, the Tom Tom Navigator 6 system includes Tom Tom Home software to manage all the files on your device, get new updates on your PC or Mac in advance, and more, as well as supporting a wide range of Tom Tom Plus services and downloads. Tom Tom Plus lets you receive real-time, up-to-the-minute traffic information, with jam alerts and road condition warnings, as well as use instant messaging and more to keep in touch with a selected group of people, including tracking their location. Tom Tom Plus is an optional, cost-based service that can be accessed through Navigator 6 at any time.

The receiver that is included in the Tom Tom Navigator 6 package utilizes Bluetooth technology to eliminate the need for connecting cables, and a high-performance GPS antenna to ensure the best possible reception wherever you might happen to go. Ideal for urban environments, the GPS antenna on this unit will stay connected to make sure you find your way whether you are driving down the road or walking down the street, and because of its Bluetooth connectivity, and its small size and light weight, this handy receiver can fit easily in a pocket, purse, or anywhere else out of the way.

Designed to be ultimately safe, Navigator 6 software provides for easy call handling for PDAs with calling functionality, with on-screen instructions that remain visible while making phone calls or receiving SMS messages, as well as the ability to dial a point of interest. The navigation system not only encourages you to get from A to B as safely as possible, but alerts you to when you are speeding, even if you are not in navigation mode. The Tom Tom Navigator 6 software and GPS receiver package is compatible with most popular brands and models of PDAs, including; Acer, Dell, Eten, Fujitsu Siemens (compatible with software, not receiver), HP, Imate, O2, Orange, Palm Treo, Qtek, T-Mobile, and Nokia.

What's in the Box
Navigation 6 software on DVD with application and maps of the US and Canada, full user's manual, Bluetooth GPS receiver, car charger with multiple plugs for various cell phones and PDAs, home charger, installation guide, quick-start guide, and product code card.
