Land and Sea Forest Products Leverages NaviGo™ Advanced GPS Navigation

                                   Real-Time Feedback from Operations Team Makes a Difference on the Road

BURLINGTON, MASS. – April, 7, 2009 — Maptuit Corporation, a leader in GPS navigation and route optimization for commercial transportation, today announced that Land and Sea Forest Products has deployed NaviGoÔ Advanced GPS Navigation throughout its fleet. In doing so, Land and Sea joins a rapidly growing community of trucking companies that are taking advantage of Maptuit’s unique hybrid approach to commercial GPS navigation.

“Our operations team has been feeding Maptuit specific routing preferences on a regular basis. The result is that our drivers are getting routes through NaviGo™ that have been tuned to meet our expectations,” stated Wade Carden, President and CEO of Land and Sea. “This is lowering our toll costs, decreasing phone calls to our operations team, increasing driver satisfaction, and putting us at customer locations with a high degree of accuracy.” Mr. Carden added, “At first I didn’t understand all the advantages of off-board route generation through NaviGo™, but after seeing how we can both customize routes and customer locations, I can’t imagine doing it any other way. I’m just not sure how you could achieve the same return on investment.”

“Unlike competing truck navigation products that couple standard car routing algorithms with stale truck data to provide a solution, Maptuit uses an advanced proprietary routing algorithm developed specifically for trucking that has been honed over the last 10 years through collaboration with the nation’s largest fleets.” stated Luke Wachtel, Executive Vice President of Maptuit. “In addition, the truck-specific map data that Maptuit uses is the best in the industry for several reasons; not only do we leverage the leading map data provider (NAVTEQ) for our base data, but we layer our own snapshots of the truck network in order to take advantage of the tens of thousands of modifications, small and large, we receive from our community of over 80,000 truck drivers.”

NaviGoÔ Advanced GPS Navigation is a subscription-based software solution that runs on all the leading fleet management and mobile communications systems.
