CES News: Destinator introduces tobe for PNDs and wireless devices

Destinator Technologies has launched tobe (pronounced tow-be) – a new personalised location-based content service for PND and wireless device users worldwide.

Combining on-board and off-board content that can be updated in real-time, tobe brings together a wide range of information sources including major city maps, local search, travel guides, user generated content on the best restaurants, clubs and bars, POI sharing, buddy-finding, safety camera information, real-time traffic alerts via TMC and local events updates

Tobe will be offered to Destinator’s major brand partners in both the PND and wireless market as a value added service.

Further services are already planned – with a number of content providers positioned to offer services via tobe. As an open platform, tobe provides third party content developers and services the opportunity to deliver a wider range of even more innovative personalised services.

Initially, tobe will offer content covering more than twenty countries – with PND users able to access information via their PCs and the tobe website. Mobile device users can access real-time information via GPS whilst they are on the move.

Region-specific services will also be featured in tobe, e.g. the Public Transport Planner in China, the gas price comparison service in North America, and the latest speed-camera updates in Europe.
