Mexens Technology recently released Navizon, its 'revolutionary', P2P "Wireless Positioning System" that successfully blends GPS, Cellular and WiFi technologies together into one accurate "mobile geo-location" system and service.Navizon might be the perfect navigation companion for your WiFi or Cell enabled Pocket PC as long as you are in a Navizon covered area (like New York, Miami or Toronto today).
If you have a GPS device, Navizon will map the Wireless Landscape (Wi-Fi access points & cell towers) everywhere you go and then use this data to dramatically improve the accuracy and performance of your navigation within dense urban settings, indoors and even underground. GPS users now have accurate coverage in places they never did before and when they don't have their GPS devices with them (left at home, at work or in the car). Once you sync your location data to the Navizon Network it's available to all Navizon Members, worldwide.
If you don't have GPS device, Navizon lets you accurately navigate cities, streets and neighborhoods using just your Pocket PC's WiFi and/or Cell capabilities without having to purchase an expensive GPS device or to pay hefty monthly fees to cell phone carrier network.
Membership in the Navizon Network is free and offers GPS, PDA and WiFi enthusiasts - as well as the general public - many outstanding and unique benefits, such as:
- the ability to upload and store your Location Data (with option to share or keep private)
- access to Wireless Positioning Data that others around the world have collected and contributed
- user preferences that let you specify any city, neighborhoods or areas of the world that you'd like to navigate using only Pocket PC WiFi and/or Cellular capabilities (no need for GPS device)
"Since our technology is collaborative, Navizon is the fastest growing, most accurate, dynamic and "organic" Wireless Positioning System on the planet! It enables people all over the world to collect, use and store GPS positioning data about the places they've been, routes they've taken and the journeys they've made... and then share that data anytime with others Members of the Navizon Network who do the same" said James P. W. Parsons, Mexens Technology Co-Founder
Navizon is collaborative, useful and fun! You can check already the coverage in New York City, Miami or Toronto where users have been contributing but stay tuned, the Navizon Network is growing fast.
If you are a GPS and navigation addict, it might be worth to try and maybe you can even help to build and grow the Navizon network in your area.
