Destinator

Destinator, from PowerLOC Technologies, transforms a Pocket PC handheld into a well-featured in-car navigation system. First experiences with Destinator are remarkable: it locks on quickly to accessible GPS satellites to map and display your location on the Pocket PC screen; then you are literally talked to your destination -- corner by corner and roundabout by roundabout. But, as with many first-generation products, a few glitches emerge when it is put through its paces.
