Mobile Geo runs on a windows mobile cellphone platform. With Mobile Geo GPS, you can learn about your location, nearby points of interest (POIs), plan a route between specified points of origin and destination, and get instructions on maneuvers about waypoints along a route that you are following. Additionally, since the hardware platform is a cell phone, you can activate it and use the accessible cell phone functions.
Highlights of the GPS software, Mobile Geo
- GEO IS BACKED BY THE BEST

- GEO LETS YOU BUY MAPS AS A BUNDLE
With Mobile Geo, you can purchase maps for multiple European countries, as a map bundle.
- GEO IS INDEPENDENT
With Mobile Geo, no data plan? No problem.

With the new Mobile Geo Contact interface, not only can you lookup and call those listed in your phone's Contacts List, but you can also set the Contact's address as a destination or virtual position.
- GEO LETS YOU DABBLE WITH THE DETAILS
When you open a POI's Details Screen, Mobile Geo lets you act on its information such as dialing its telephone number, sending an email, or browsing to its web page.
- GEO LETS YOU SWITCH
