XDA Orbit

IT’S THE END OF THE ROAD FOR DEDICATED SAT NAV UNITS

WITH THE NEW SLEEK O2 XDA ORBIT 

With over 41 million Britons admitting to getting lost in the UK,

O2 unveils the new O2 Xda Orbit with integrated GPS

London, UK. 27 November 2006: O2 today announces the launch of the O2 Xda Orbit, the first O2 Xda to offer built-in GPS and seamless door-to-door navigation, in an ultra-slim, stylish portable device. Using the latest technology, the O2 Xda Orbit features a 2.0 mega pixel camera, MP3 player, radio and WiFi functionality whilst combining the latest Windows Mobile® OS 5 software, ensuring users benefit from mobile Internet, e-mail and the same easy-to-use format as Microsoft® Office.

With O2’s recent research revealing that over 86% of UK adults get lost on the roads in the UK*, the O2 Xda Orbit’s in-built GPS system helps users remain on course throughout their journey. Bundled with the popular and latest CoPilot Live sat nav package from ALK Technologies, navigation has never been so easy on an O2 Xda.   Simply type in your chosen destination on the large, bright, 2.8 inch colour TFT LCD touch screen and the O2 Xda Orbit will direct you to your chosen destination quickly and safely. Ideal for pedestrians as well as car travellers, the O2 Xda Orbit makes dedicated navigation systems unnecessary.

CoPilot Live navigation software is supplied on an easy-to-install memory card that has complete maps of UK and Ireland preloaded, accurate down to house number, point of interest or seven-digit UK postcode. Detailed routes are calculated in seconds and turn-by-turn directions are provided on-screen and spoken, all the way to the destination. There’s a choice of map views, including ‘non-distracting driver-safety’, ‘itinerary’, ‘where am I?’ and 3D ’bird’s eye’ view. If a turn is missed CoPilot recalculates the best new route immediately.
