PowerNavigation will let you use your GPS receiver for all kinds of navigation tasks as effectively as possible. You can use custom maps with the help of PowerNavigation. It will also let you watch direction, movement speed, level of GPS signal and satellites' monitoring, record passed way, create waypoints, tracks and different sound events.
This program requires a separate GPS receiver. It's not supplied with your device!

MapEditor is an application that lets you create maps in .pnmap format (Power Navigation Map), which can be used for navigation in PowerNavigation 2 on your device.

License: Freeware, moreover you are allowed to use created maps both in personal and commercial way (e.g. sell them by yourself, if you don't break any copyrights).

Content providers: If you made a map for use with PowerNavigation and want to share it with others then simply drop us a line and we'll publish a link to your page or webstore where your maps are located.
