Hertz Australia offering NeverLost Navigation System

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Monday, 26 November 2007

Hertz Australia is now offering the NeverLost portable navigation system, enabling customers to benefit from satellite guidance technology in Hertz rental vehicles around Australia.

The portable units will be introduced progressively at major airports, as well as selected downtown locations in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane, Coolangatta, Surfers Paradise, Cairns, Noosa Heads and Maroochydore.

"Satellite navigation takes the stress out of driving in unfamiliar territory," said Wayne Burgoyne, Director of Sales and Marketing for Hertz Australia.

"Gone are the days of leafing through street directories or unfolding giant maps by the side of the road," said Mr Burgoyne. "Our new portable satellite navigation systems are compatible with all of our vehicles at participating locations."

"Customers simply enter details of their end destination and the satellite navigation unit will provide voice and visual directions to the desired location."

The NeverLost portable navigation system has already been introduced by Hertz in Europe and an in-car version is available in the USA. For several years, Hertz Australia has offered fixed satellite navigation systems in selected vehicles.

"The introduction of the portable NeverLost system now means that customers can have the convenience of satellite navigation in many more of our vehicles," Mr Burgoyne said.

The new portable navigation units will offer features including the latest Australian maps, easy programming and a choice of seven voice guidance languages.

The 8.9 centimetre screens also offer anti glare protection and high resolution images, and are just 22 millimetres thick, making them very easy to carry.

The NeverLost portable navigation units will be offered by Hertz at a nominal daily charge, subject to availability.
