General Details

Extra product information

The Trekker describes surrounding landmarks. For example, intersections, post offices, restaurants, local attractions, ATMs, street names and addresses . The device can direct the user between points. Similar to the GPS system used in a car, the trekker describes what direction the user needs to go, and the distance. The user can set their own landmarks or points of interest (for example a park bench they like to sit at).

Trekker complements existing aids (white canes and guide dogs). It does not replace them.

A wide variety of maps are available covering most Western countries (including Australia). New or additional maps are available on Compact Disk or Compact Flash™ cards, or by download (FTP).

The device allows the user to record both vocal and written notes.

Trekker uses Eloquence speech synthesiser.
