Windows Embedded NavReady is a development product with a set of innovative features that are compatible with Windows CE 5.0 and are ready to be implemented on a portable navigation device (PND).

Windows Embedded NavReady helps a developer to be successful with building a portable navigation device (PND), which provides location-aware services and which connects to other devices to make hands-free phone calls, stream music, and exchange data.

The Windows Embedded NavReady architecture supports a connected navigation-device experience, which enables applications to receive information or access services from various sources, including Bluetooth-enabled devices, Internet servers, Live Search Engines, desktop computers, or car audio kits.

With Windows Embedded NavReady, you can build a Windows Embedded NavReady powered device that is based on an ARM microprocessor, provides USB connectivity, and includes a custom portable navigation device (PND) user interface (UI). Users can carry the device along with them when they are in the car or on-the-go, enabling them to stay connected with their phone contacts, music, and information about the latest news, weather, and traffic, wherever they are.
