January 25, 2006 – Navicore, the mobile navigation software provider, announces today the opening of a new online shop designed to help users update and upgrade their Navicore Personal products with total ease.
The new online shop will offer consumers a convenient, fast and affordable way to get map updates (i.e. new versions of the same geographical area) and extensions (i.e. maps covering new regions).
Existing Navicore users in the UK can now upgrade their products to the 2006/1 version of Navicore Personal to take advantage of whole range of new features, including: free traffic information and dynamic routing, full postal code support, safety camera downloads and updated Tele Atlas maps. The upgrade is available for £61.00 (inc VAT) on a MMC memory card or £54.00 (inc VAT) on CD-ROM.
In addition to map updates, the online shop offers consumers a single source for service and software downloads which come in useful, for example, where a phone has been changed, lost or stolen — it offers a convenient and guaranteed backup for users.
William Morgan, Navicore’s UK sales agent, explains, “The online shop is all about adding value to the customer, so if a phone gets lost or stolen, all the user has to do is input a valid licence code online and download the Navicore software onto a computer and then copy it onto a new MMC memory card. It’s that straight forward.”
The products will be available to order either pre-installed on memory cards or on CD-ROM. Memory card distribution makes updating and extending maps simple as all users need to do is insert the new memory card in their phones and away they go. Consumers who already have a memory card can order new software and new maps on a CD-ROM. Memory cards and CD-ROMs can be ordered either using traditional mail delivery or as express service via courier.
The new Webshop can be found through a link on Navicore’s main website at www.navicore.co.uk
