iGolf Drives to the Green with GPS Package for Palm OS and Pocket PC

9/22/2003 - iGolf Technologies has announced the addition of a SD GPS receiver to its line of GPS products. This new SD GPS receiver is the only GPS receiver available which is universally compatible with all Palm OS and Pocket PC devices with a SDIO expansion slot. The SD GPS receiver will be packaged and sold with two GPS software applications, iGolfgps and Mapopolis, designed to operate on either platform.

Handheld computer enthusiasts worldwide have been anticipating the introduction of a GPS receiver which operates universally on Palm OS and Pocket PC devices. Until recently, a universal GPS solution was not possible due to the rapidly changing size and functionality caused by technological advancements in handheld design. The SD GPS receiver provides universal functionality by using the SDIO slot, which is fast becoming the standard choice among Palm OS and Pocket PC manufactures. The SD GPS receiver is advantageous in many ways including being small, convenient and affordable.

When purchasing the SD GPS package, consumers will receive two software applications, which are compatible with Palm OS and Pocket PC devices. iGolfgps provides golfers with distance measurements to the front, center and back of the green. This software allows the user to select four customizable locations, measure drive distance from the tee and includes an optional scorecard for up to four players. Mapopolis provides navigation and driving directions for a specific region. Palm OS and Pocket PC users will enjoy a detailed map of their selected region, maps of the national highways, door-to-door driving directions, streets with addresses, cities, water features, landmarks and GPS support.

"Our GPS package is a tremendous value to our consumer. We have integrated three desirable products into one incredible, affordable package," said Dan Galatro, Vice President of Operations for iGolf Technologies. "Furthermore, this comprehensive package allows merchandisers to inventory only one item, as opposed to the five items required if sold individually." The SD GPS package is currently available for pre-order; however, actual shipment is not expected until October 27, 2003. "We are encouraging all consumers to act quickly," stated Galatro. "We have a limited supply on hand to fulfill the first wave of orders." Interested consumers can reserve their package by going to www.igolftech.com/sdgps.php
