Satellite navigation rather than celestial navigation for this season’s wise men

London, 5th November 2007 – This Christmas, wise men (and women) will be finding their way with stylish personal satellite navigation systems, that fit easily into their pocket, wallet or handbag. MyMobileSatNav from Carphone Warehouse gives you access to leading satellite navigation technology on your mobile phone, whether you are walking, cycling, driving or riding a camel. This highly portable, design-conscious device is the ideal gift for party hoppers, gadget lovers, New Year fitness fans and anyone who simply wants to get from A to B without a tattered A-Z.

The award-winning design gives the MyMobileSatNav satellite receiver a chic, minimalist style. It connects to your mobile wirelessly via Bluetooth and enables real-time navigation on almost any Java-based mobile phone, giving immediate, voice-activated directions with on-screen mapping.

There is no fiddling about with complicated instructions either; this is a quick and simple device to install so that you can get on with navigating your busy life. It has all the applications that you would see in a stand-alone SatNav device so that you are guaranteed a comprehensive navigation service without a cumbersome piece of equipment. Real-time traffic information keeps you up to speed with travel problems as they happen, it will even re-route you if it calculates a quicker way.

Safety camera alerts are a favourite, along with precise door-to-door routing if you happen to be on foot. A useful ‘points of interest’ guide gets you to the nearest petrol station, hotel or restaurant, whatever you need to find. This compact travel companion also addresses the anti-theft issues that come with having a specific, in-car device.

The good news is that this award-winning device is available at high street prices. Available from Carphone Warehouse as ‘MyMobileSatNav’ for £39.99.
