Dynamic sat-navs show promise for travel sector

Mobile services for travel are currently being talked about with as much frequency and gusto as dynamic packaging, circa 2005.

The mash-up of in-car sat-nav facilities with hotel information is also something which crops up from time to time.

So interesting to get an email from NDrive last week, boasting of a new sat-nav system which also uses aerial photography of key cities and locations to guide drivers to a destination.

Once again, it doesn't take an enormous leap of the imagination to see where this might go.

Destination content providers could quite easily add a feed into the system so a driver can find out more about a location and availability of services or products, such as hotels, using quality images rather than the current graphic-based and rather dull looking interfaces.
