Rocky Mountain Tracking Releases NavIQ Mobile for Cell Phone Tracking

February 04, 2009

FORT COLLINS, CO --- Rocky Mountain Tracking Inc. (RMT) is releasing its newest tracking application for GPS-enabled cell phones.

"Anyone with a Blackberry or Windows Mobile device can track their cell phone from any computer through web-based tracking software," said Brad Borst, president of the company. The technology used for this purpose is a tracking software called NavIQ Mobile. Global in range, NavIQ Mobile allows the user to have access to a number of features. The tracking software is available in over 56 countries in Europe, the Middle East and the Americas.

NavIQ Mobile technology offers a range of safety and security benefits. Cell phones are now GPS-enabled so that emergency call centers are more accurately able to detect a person's position in the same way that they can trace calls made from land lines.

In 2003, the Federal Communications Commission passed a directive that required all cell phones manufactured after 2005 to be GPS capable. Enhanced 911 or E911 mandates that all new cell phones support location identification technology. When you dial 911 from your cell phone, for example, the public safety answering point, or PSAP, can pinpoint your exact location within a few meters.

The launch of NavIQ Mobile now offers a more advanced technology that provides more information, such as address, speed, heading, longitude, latitude, date, time, and a history of everywhere it has been. RMT's NavIQ Mobile software application provides live tracking, fast maps, custom map data, and full color graphics.

NavIQ Mobile also boasts such tools as animated pans, 3D perspective zooms, and fly-over routing.

GPS-enabled cell phones allow business owners to not only keep a watchful eye over their employees, but also to track their entire fleet of vehicles used by their mobile workforce, the company pointed out.

A primary advantage with the roll-out of NavIQ Mobile is the elimination of purchasing additional tracking hardware. Even if you do not currently have one of RMT's other GPS tracking devices, NavIQ Mobile offers tracking of your existing cell phone as an option, the company said.

Installation of NavIQ Mobile to a cell phone takes only a few minutes.
