New Spoken GPS Navigation Solution Available for Trucks

June 21, 2005

RESTON, VA — Nextel, ALK, and Motorola have announced the launch of ALK’s PC*MILER|Mobile, a spoken GPS navigation solution for trucks. The subscription service provides spoken turn-by-turn, street-level, truck-specific routing information and is available on Nextel Java and GPS-enabled handsets. The service also provides fleets and customers a real-time view of truck location, speed, and heading information on a secure Web site — delivering a cost-effective tool to improve operational efficiency. The GPS solution is delivered via select Nextel handsets powered by Motorola’s VIAMOTO technology.A driver will hear spoken directions on the phone’s speaker and is routed on truck-safe roads and away from low overpasses. Users can also select routes compliant with hazardous materials and 53’/102” trailer restrictions. If the driver misses a turn, the PC*MILER|Mobile recalculates the route to provide directions from the new location to the selected destination. Destinations can be entered using the handset keypad, by selecting a previously entered address, by searching a business directory, or by selecting destinations from the address book that have been entered by dispatchers on the PC*MILER|Mobile Web site.
