Champaign, IL - With Maptech's new Pocket Navigator software you have the key to outdoor adventures in your hand. Now hikers, fishermen, Hunters, boaters, sailors, and pilots can transfer genuine USGS topographic maps and NOAA charts to their handheld Pocket PC. The next step in fun-filled outdoor navigation - be truly mobile, with the best cartography at your fingertips -- be a "Pocket Navigator."

Imagine this: plan your day trip at your desktop using Maptech's Terrain Navigator (complete US coverage of topographic maps) or Digital ChartKit 2001 (official NOAA charts of US waters) and quickly transfer them to your handheld Pocket PC. Most Pocket PC handhelds have at least 16 MBs of storage which is enough for 5 to 10 topographic maps or charts - more than enough space for the maps you will need for the day or weekend. Add more flash card storage and download your entire boating season charts, fishing hot spots, hiking and hunting maps.

Pocket Navigator software works with Maptech digital charts and maps. Terrain Navigator and Digital ChartKit are sold separately. Operation requires a Pocket PC handheld. Visit for details and the Pocket Navigator tour.
