London, 5 February 2009: GPS pioneer Navman shows romantics how they can make the most of their Navman sat-nav device when deciding on a Valentine’s Day weekend getaway.
Through its NavPix technology, users can access an online album of secluded geo-tagged locations not associated with a post code, to the UK’s top ten Romantic Hot Spots. While Navman’s Local Search service provides access to surrounding local amenities, such as the nearest florist, restaurant or hotel using a local directory search partner.
UK’s most romantic Valentine’s Day destinations:
· Lake Windemere, Cumbria
· Lake Vyrnwy, Wales
· Royal Crescent, Bath
· Scotney Castle, Kent
· Eilean Donan Castle, Scotland
· Killarney National Park, Ireland
· Stonehenge, Wiltshire
· The London Eye, London
· Gretna Green, Scotland
· Blarney Castle, Ireland
· Gwbert on Sea, Wales
The NavPix technology works by cleverly adding the coordinates of a destination onto an image of the chosen building or landscape, which is then saved onto the Navman device. Once stored, users simply scroll through their album, choose a destination via the image and Navman calculates the best route. Navman has created a dedicated Valentine’s NavPix album, available for budding romantics to view, share and download geo-tagged images via the NavPix Library.
To join the NavPix community, Navman users can also upload their own geo-tagged images or digital images (provided with location information) to Navman.com to create their own geo-tagged albums. As the NavPix Library also allows users to download and share thousands of images with others around the world, Navman invites romantics to contribute from their own Valentine’s Day experience by uploading local POI images for others to navigate to next year.
