TouchPC 'Navigate' - a complete GPS solution

Domestic takeup of GPS satellite navigation is mimicking the growth a decade earlier of mobile phones an exclusive gadget that has, through technological developments and mass adoption, begun to break through to the mainstream.

Commercial use of GPS for navigation purposes has demonstrated that optimising the road use of a fleet of vehicles can shear away wasted time and fuel costs, boosting profits considerably.

TouchStar has been involved in GPS navigation ever since businesses showed an interest in the technology. Our robust, connective hardware and versatile software solutions, plus an ethos of mutually beneficial collaboration with other market pioneers, have given us a firm foundation on which to develop real solutions. Navigate is the latest in our GPS range of software and hardware solutions. As a route-finding solution, Navigate software is a valuable contribution to any fleets economic well-being. However, the system becomes even more powerful when used in conjunction with TouchStar fleet management hardware solutions. The benefits of tracking vehicles to within a fraction of a kilometre are felt not just by the fleets owner but by its customers, particularly when reliable ETAs can be given without having to call the driver. Data fed back from the time/position log can be used to calculate the most efficient routes and wring extra mileage out of each tank of fuel.

TouchStars Colour TouchPCs bring a new brilliance and toughness to touch-screen technology. These TouchPCs may be TouchStars newest offerings in colour but they draw on our decades of experience in portable computing. They also provide the perfect canvas for Navigates digital map renderings, designed to sparkle in all lighting conditions.
