Dubai: NavGuard, a leading location solutions company for GPS technology, has entered the Middle East market with the launch of combined navigation and tracking application, NavTrack, for BlackBerry smartphones, which is now available on BlackBerry App World.
It has been optimised specifically for the BlackBerry platform and allows users in the Middle East region to access accurate GPS maps to ensure they never lose their way, the company has said.
Whether the user is driving or walking, getting from one location to another is now easier than ever for BlackBerry smartphone users with turn-by-turn voice instructions, prior notice of the next manoeuvre and an estimated time of arrival, it said.
Users can view their position in real-time using 2D and 3D interactive maps and can make calls using the built-in phone menu without switching tasks.
GPS-equipped BlackBerry smartphones can also be turned into a tracking devices, particularly helpful for fleet and sales managers, so that employee movements can be monitored via the web-based app.
Managers are empowered to instantly locate and communicate with any of their field workers, at any time.
NavGuard is a member of the BlackBerry Alliance Programme, which provides technical, marketing and business development support to BlackBerry developers.
