G-Map Upgrades for East and West US GPS Software With Apple for Review and Approval

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Oct 22, 2009 -- XRoad, which develops portable navigation devices and created G-Map, the first GPS application for the Apple iPhone with turn-by-turn directions, will soon make available free updated versions of its G-Map East and West U.S. software for iPhone users. XRoad has completed the software update and submitted it to the Apple review team for approval. The upgrade will be available in the App Store as soon as the review is complete.

While it completes the upgrade of the existing G-Map East and West U.S. software, these items have been removed from the App Store. New G-Map customers may still purchase the newly-released G-Map U.S. and Canada software. The G-Map East and West U.S. versions will be available at the App store again soon -- with the upgraded features.

The G-Map East and West U.S. upgrade contains a number of enhancements requested by customers and made possible by the latest iPhone software update. New features include:

-- TTS (Text-to-Speech)

-- Landscape or Portrait mode

-- instant access to iPhone's address book for routing destination

-- automatic resumption of music


The real-time traffic service also will be added and submitted to the App Store for approval within a few weeks. The live traffic service will be available as an in-app purchase option at a to-be-decided price, because X Road purchases the service from the third party provider.

"All the features that appear in the newly-released G-Map U.S. & Canada software, except real-time traffic, will be found in the upgraded version of G-Map US East and West, so that our early customers can take advantage of those innovations," explains Sean Lee, Marketing Director of XRoad. "Customers tell us they appreciate the new functionality of real-time traffic and text-to-speech."
