iGolf Technologies is now offering directly to the public its driver that allows Palm OS handhelds to use the Pretec GPS SD card.
Currently, the Pretec GPS SD card is packaged without a Palm OS driver, which means it can only be used with Pocket PCs.
For a limited time, iGolf Technologies is going to give Pretec consumers the ability to purchase the GPS SD card driver directly from its website.
Currently, the GPS SD card driver only functions with iGolf Technologies iGolfgps v.2 and Mapopolis Navigator.
iGolfgps provides golfers with accurate distance measurements to the front, center and back of a green and four customizable points, such as water and sand hazards. Additionally, a scorecard for up to four golfers is included, complete with player’s statistics and real time scoring.
Mapopolis Navigator provides spoken and visual navigation prompts before each turn and generates routes in the United States, Canada and Western Europe.
Additional GPS software, developed by iGolf Technologies or provided by other developers, will become available in the future. Developers who would like their software compatible with the SD GPS receiver, may contact iGolf Technologies to inquire further.
Those wishing to purchase this driver should visit the iGolf Technologies web site.
“We are working closely with companies like Pretec, exploring the possibility of a GPS package with an SD GPS Receiver and drivers compatible with both palmOne and Pocket PC handhelds,” said Dan Galatro, Vice President of Operations at iGolf Technologies. “It doesn’t make sense to sell them individually with separate drivers.”
