SANTA CRUZ, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Oct 17, 2011 -- In support of the newly released Apple iOS 5, Fullpower®- MotionX® is delivering an update to its MotionX-GPS Drive HD app for the iPad 3G. This new release allows users to keep friends, family and followers up to date on their location, destination and estimated time of arrival through its new Twitter integration. With one click, users can access Twitter from the MotionX Search Wheel.
iCloud is also supported, allowing users to access their favorite locations and routes on all of their iOS devices, as well as newly optimized voice-guided navigation that makes it easy to turn on and turn off voice announcements.
"iOS 5 and the iPad work like magic, and MotionX-GPS Drive HD brings that magic into every car," said Philippe Kahn, founder and CEO of Fullpower-MotionX.
MotionX: Live and Dynamic
Everything about MotionX-GPS Drive HD is dynamic. Search, maps, routing, POIs, and destination information are all up-to-date. This is a significant advantage over on-board solutions that are huge downloads (over a Gigabyte) and immediately have outdated information. This fully-live, always up-to-date, connected experience leverages the full power of the iPad 3G. MotionX uses the latest NAVTEQ maps, Bing search, and live predictive traffic information from INRIX to deliver the most complete navigation solution designed exclusively for the iPad.
