Live Search Mobile and GPS

This application can be used to transform your mobile phone into a navigation system with the aid of a GPS receiver. It allows you to search for a location, select it as the destination and then calculate a route to that place. By using a GPS you will be able to see your current position in the map and as you progress on the route you will get visual indications and text that shows you where to turn, etc. A data plan for your phone is required to be able to download the maps. The program shows real-time traffic in selected US cities, features automatic rerouting and is available at no cost.
