Don't rack your brains over the best route, Route 66 knows how to bring you to your destination!

When it comes to Personal Navigation, the choice is harder then ever, offers on navigation solutions are a dime a dozen. Nowaydays, Geographic Information Systems are accessible to everyone and are inviting to use because of their practical, intuitive and professional features. With the strong popularity of smart phones these days, there's definitely no need to invest in a PND (Personal Navigation Device) and lug around another piece of hardware when traveling, be it for personal or professional purposes. Having used quite a number of different solutions including latest developments available on the market over the years, I have found Route 66 still is my navigation solution of choice. It might not include the one or the other gadget and gimmick, but the "core business" of a navi solution is assisting you in finding the wanted destination in the most accurate, reliable and timely manner. I have not yet come across something better and more precise in terms of displayed and spoken routing instructions, those come just right when you really need them. Route 66 truely offers an unrivalled navigation experience in these regards, and the accuracy of it's mapping simply is legendary, here in Central Europe it virtually knows "every bush" and even the most narrow yet trafficable trails.

Should you be a Samsung smartphone user, the following information could be of interest to you: because of the enormous success of their worldwide end-user campaign for Samsung Wave (GT-S8500) owners, ROUTE 66 has decided to expand the campaign to the entire family of Samsung Wave phones. Since short, lifetime onboard navigation is available not only for the Samsung Wave (GT-S8500) but also for the Samsung Wave II (GT-S8530), the Samsung Wave575 (GT-S5750) and the Samsung Wave723 (GT-S7230E). Moreover, ROUTE 66 has decided to extend the end date of the campaign with half a year to 30 June 2011. Great news, isn't it?

Here's some price info for above named offers:
- ROUTE 66 invites all owners of a Samsung Wave to buy a lifetime navigation license with a purchase price of € 29.99 for a country or regional map, € 39.99 for the map of Western Europe or Eastern Europe and € 49.99 for the map of entire Europe.
- ROUTE 66 gives as a bonus 1 year free speed camera updates with a value of € 5.99 for a country or regional map, € 7.99 for the map of Western Europe or Eastern Europe and € 9.99 for the map of entire Europe.

As you may already know, all Samsung Wave smartphones are shipped globally with a 30-day test license of Samsung LBS. Samsung LBS is a mapping and navigation application which was developed in close cooperation between Samsung and ROUTE 66. After the 30-day test period, ROUTE 66 offers all owners of a Samsung Wave the possibility to continue to enjoy navigation throughout the entire lifetime of the phone. Under the slogan “Upgrade your Samsung Wave to LIFETIME navigation now and receive 1 year FREE speed camera updates!”, ROUTE 66 invites all owners of a Samsung Wave to upgrade their smartphone with a lifetime navigation license for which they receive 1 year free speed camera updates as a bonus.

Learn more about this great offer here in English or German lingo on the landing pages for this campaign accessible from a desktop computer or here, when accessing the web from a Samsung Wave smartphone.
