SDIO GPS for the Treo 650

Mon Jan 10, 2005 - 10:23 PM EST - By Marcus Adolfsson

iGolf Technologies today announced they will begin distributing and selling a SD GPS receiver with their proprietary SD GPS driver exclusively for the Treo 650. According to iGolf the SD GPS receiver is the most convenient way to obtain GPS functionality using the Treo 650 and extensive testing has proven flawless compatibility. In addition to the SD GPS receiver, the package will also include a complimentary copy of iGolfgps v.2 and a discount link for Mapopolis Navigator.

Currently, the SD GPS receiver only functions with iGolf Technologies iGolfgps v.2 and Mapopolis Navigator. iGolfgps v.2 provides golfers with accurate distance measurements to the front, center and back of a green and four customizable points, such as water and sand hazards. Additionally, a scorecard for up to four golfers is included, complete with playerÂ’s statistics and real time scoring.

Mapopolis Navigator (sold separately) provides spoken and visual navigation prompts before each turn and generates routes in the United States, Canada and Western Europe.

Additional GPS software, developed by iGolf Technologies or provided by other developers, will become available in the future. Developers who would like their software compatible with the SD GPS receiver, may contact iGolf Technologies to inquire further.

Recently Doug Marks, a satisfied iGolf Technologies customer, stated, "With the 650, the card works perfectly, and I'm loving life. I tried it out several times yesterday, and in the car I have several satellites in view at all times. It works flawlessly".

The package can initially be purchased directly from the TreoCentral Store or from iGolf Technologies for $249.99. The SD GPS receiver cannot be purchased without the included software. Please note this package is only for the Treo 650 and quantities are currently limited.
