Fullpower Launches MotionX-GPS(TM) Drive: Always Live, Always Up-to-Date, a Fraction of the Cost

(September 28, 2009)

SANTA CRUZ, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 09/28/09 -- Fullpower Technologies, the global leader for mobile sensing solutions, today launched MotionX-GPS(TM) Drive for North America on the iPhone. This is the first door-to-door navigation application developed specifically for iPhone users.

MotionX: Next Generation Driving and Pedestrian Navigation

MotionX-GPS Drive turns any iPhone 3G or 3GS into the next generation car and pedestrian navigation solution. MotionX introduces new features not yet seen on mobile devices, including "door-to-door" personal navigation tools, user interface innovations that greatly simplify the navigation experience, and integration of live search capabilities.

Drawing from the feedback of over 2 million iPhone MotionX-GPS users, MotionX has built a complete navigation solution specifically for the iPhone. This is not a quick port of an ancient application. MotionX-GPS Drive is state-of-the-art with a state-of-the-art business model, which means users get a better solution at a fraction of the cost.


Fullpower developed MotionX-GPS Drive because customers asked for it. There are more than 2 million iPhone MotionX-GPS customers who love the outdoors, are typically 16 to 43 years old, very active, into sports and love their iPhones. These users also need to find places and get there door-to-door. MotionX asked them what they wanted and then started with a clean slate.

The result is MotionX-GPS Drive: only for the iPhone, designed with active, younger iPhone users in mind. It's different, better, more focused: It's not a port of an ancient relic developed on 20 other "feature phones" for carriers. What this means for every iPhone user is that MotionX-GPS Drive is a better solution.

"Today MotionX shows the future of car and pedestrian navigation on the iPhone," said Philippe Kahn, CEO of Fullpower. "We are fully committed to continually innovating and radically improving the navigation experience. The iPhone is the perfect platform to invent the future of navigation."

MotionX-GPS Drive has an introductory price of $2.99 and covers the U.S. and Canada.

MotionX: Everything is Live and Dynamic

Everything about MotionX-GPS Drive is dynamic including search, maps and routing. This fully-live, always up-to-date, connected experience is unparalleled, leveraging the full power of the Internet and the iPhone. MotionX-GPS Drive is designed and optimized for the iPhone, and provides a user interface for iPod music and for the iPhone 3GS compass. MotionX-GPS Drive turns any iPhone 3G or 3GS into the next generation vehicle and pedestrian navigation solution.

MotionX live connected solution vs. on-board competitors -- with the MotionX-GPS Drive solution, users benefit from a fully-live, always up-to-date, connected experience for navigation. Search, maps, routing, points of interest (POIs), and relevant destination information, such as phone numbers, are delivered to the user -- all current, real-time and up-to-date. This is a significant advantage over on-board solutions, such as those available from providers TomTom and Navigon, which require users to download and pre-install map data with tedious data loads that are in excess of a gigabyte. Off-board navigation data is static, and hence, becomes outdated the moment it is loaded onto the user's device.
