Dutch company Palmtop Software has created a personalised listing service that can pinpoint a user's exact location and provide local information from traffic reports to restaurant recommendations.
The service, codenamed Tom Tom, displays the information through text or a highly detailed map. It can also display route planners.
Tom Tom´s built-in intelligence means that it can pre-empt users' needs during a journey and warn about traffic jams, for example.
The device will work with wireless application protocol phones and palmtop devices, but it has been designed with future GPRS, 3G and smartphones in mind. The service will go live in the next few months.
