StreetTalk GPS Solution

PAC Mate users can enjoy new confidence and have fun while traveling near and far with the StreetTalk accessible GPS (Global Positioning System) solution. Paired with a GPS receiver, StreetTalk is a route-savvy travel companion and real-time exploration guide. Take it for a ride, vacation, business trip, or local jaunt, and keep oriented to your location. Discover new places to explore. Design a custom trip on the go. Even route an entire trip with interesting stops before departing. Based on mainstream GPS technology for Pocket PCs, StreetTalk makes the award-winning Destinator™ application and its maps accessible.

StreetTalk can be used with a choice of many popular Bluetooth® GPS receivers. With Bluetooth, the receiver can be placed up to 30 feet from the user – on a window sill, the rear deck of a car, or even on a guide dog harness, so you aren't tethered to a lot of cables or special straps.

More Information
  • Combined with a GPS receiver and a PAC Mate, StreetTalk provides a rich orientation solution for the blind and those with low vision.
  • StreetTalk provides information through braille or speech announcements.
  • Ask StreetTalk where you are, and get the nearest address or your latitude and longitude. Tell it where you want to go, and let StreetTalk announce turn-by-turn directions.
  • StreetTalk has access to information about millions of points of interest and can announce approaching restaurants, public buildings, hospitals, metro stations, convention centers, shopping, and other places.
