Humanware has released Trekker Breeze version 2.0, a software upgrade to the Trekker Breeze talking GPS. The newest Trekker Breeze version has several additions to the capability of the GPS including:
Guidance to a destination address: The new Trekker Breeze version offers a new destination address entry feature. When entering an address, the Breeze’s keys are used like a cell phone keypad to enter the address. The entered address is kept in the destination list as a landmark. A route can then be created for guidance to that address with pedestrian or motorized turn instructions.
Importing addresses from a PC: Trekker Breeze users can now use a PC to convert addresses into Breeze landmarks using specialized websites that convert addresses into GPX files. The GPX files can then be imported into the Breeze as landmarks or Points of Interest. A route can then be created for guidance to that address with pedestrian or motorized turn instructions.
Improved backtrack: The Breeze will now remember the previous pedestrian track even after turning Off the device. Once the Breeze is turned On again, the Backtrack Previous Session is an available option to be guided back to the last point of origin.
Reverse a pre-recorded route: It is now possible to reverse a recorded route. When activating a route, if the Confirm button is pressed and held down, Breeze will activate the route in reverse direction.
The software update is available for free for all current Trekker Breeze users via the Humanware Website.
