Sense Navigation (Sense Nav) is powered by Sendero GPS. This program uses map data together with a GPS receiver, and gives information based on the map data. With millions of points of interest, you can find anything from restaurants to hotels, to hospitals. You can even add your own custom entries such as your home, your work, or a friend's home. Creating vehicle or pedestrian routes is easy and you can even share them with other GPS users.

GPS satellites and massive location databases combine to create the potential for every place on earth to have a label. The Voice Sense, together with map data and a GPS receiver makes all labeled information accessible. Since GPS satellites can be picked up anywhere in the world, many consumer products already have access to this information. As the consumer demand for these technologies increases, there is more improvements for more accurate location information.
