Thuraya XT Only Satellite Handheld Supporting GPS Waypoint Navigation

posted on 29/06/2010: 2513 views

Thuraya's XT handheld is the only satellite phone enabling GPS waypoint navigation services. This unique service allows users to navigate their way to a selected location with the phone providing distance and directional assistance through an electronic compass.

Since the users of satellite phones are normally based in outdoor and remote locations, they inevitably require GPS services to reach certain locations and to be reached in the event of an emergency.

"Through Thuraya XT's GPS application, our customers are able to access several handy and vital services. Most significant is the ability to navigate to a waypoint that is selected by the user. Thuraya XT's GPS services allows users to save their own GPS coordinates and, based on this the phone, automatically calculates the direction and distance to any required waypoint location," said Thuraya's Vice President Corporate Communications, Ebrahim K. Ebrahim.

"For further reliability, Thuraya XT allows customers to save any route taken through the Location Tracking feature which is useful in difficult terrain. The phone will automatically record your route while moving and it will save the waypoints along the route which makes it a very powerful navigation tool," he added. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
