TCS Announces New Xypoint Mapping Server Release

ANNAPOLIS, MD -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Mar 31, 2008 -- CTIA - Booth # 1341 - TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. (TCS) (NASDAQ: TSYS), a leading provider of mission-critical wireless communications and content, today announced the availability of the Xypoint® Mapping Server release 5.3 with new features that improve application developers' ability to rapidly build and deploy location-based services.

The Xypoint Mapping Server has been widely used and enhanced for more than a decade. Customers use it for sophisticated applications including roadside service, directory assistance, vehicle tracking, and telematics. Supporting Web, mobile and connected navigation applications, release 5.3 provides a technology platform for applications to request and receive location, routing and point-of-interest information, as well as to generate tiled maps.

Key features of this new release include:

--  Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (AJAX) support. This feature enables
    continuous panning of maps for interactive web applications. Companies can
    create location-based services for their customers using standards-based
    maps that are combined with rich content. Rather than viewing a static map,
    users can continuously scroll to view a desired area on the map.
--  Commercial Vehicle and Turn Restrictions. These two features enable
    companies deploying commercial location-based services to optimize routes
    or develop alternate driving directions based on commercial vehicle
    profiles and road restrictions, saving time and decreasing costs through
    improved routing.
--  Traffic-based Routing. Developers can integrate real-time traffic
    information into their location-based applications to evaluate the effect
    of traffic conditions on a particular route or to generate unique alternate
    routes based on real-time traffic conditions.
--  Fuzzy Search. This enhanced search capability enables the application
    of fuzzy logic to provide a rich location-based search capability. This
    enables applications to search by partial business names or misspelled
    names, and to provide ranked search results based on proximity or along a

"TCS' Xypoint Mapping Server has a long history of providing mission critical, location-based solutions to telecommunication companies and their partners," stated Timothy Lorello, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. "With this release, we are providing mapping and navigation support features with powerful user interfaces, and the flexible content integration features allow developers to customize and enhance the value of the applications to the end user."
