HP Announces iPAQ Navigate Online

HP iPAQ Navigate OnlineYou can tell that CES is quickly approaching when HP announces a whole slew of new computers, including the just announced TX2000 Tablet PC.

HP has also announced a new online trip planning service, called iPAQ Navigate, that can also integrate into their iPAQ GPS solutions. HP is outfitting GottaBeMobile.com with a couple of iPAQ 300 Series GPS units to use during CES, so we’ll give their trip planning site a try and put the data on the iPAQ 300. Regardless of whether you own a iPAQ or not, check out iPAQ Navigate Online when planning your next trip.

HP today launched HP iPAQ Navigate (www.ipaq.com/navigate), a trip planning website allowing users to create custom travel itineraries that can be printed for easy reference or loaded to the new HP iPAQ 300 Series Travel Companion personal navigation device for dynamic trip management.

Before embarking on business or personal travel, customers can log onto the free HP iPAQ Navigate site to search for attractions, restaurants and hotels to add as points of interest to personalize trip plans – all from the comfort of a computer at home or in the office. The intuitive interface makes it easy to add, rearrange or delete destination points along an itinerary.

Unlike most mapping and navigation sites, itineraries need not stop at the printer with the HP iPAQ Navigate website. Once plans are completed on a PC, they can be printed or conveniently loaded onto the HP iPAQ 300 Series personal navigation device. If trip plans change along the way, travelers can edit itineraries directly on the device and instantly share updates with friends, family or colleagues by simply logging back onto the site.
