AAA Mobile Available on BlackBerry Smartphones

By Stefania Viscusi, Assignment Desk Editor


Motoring and leisure travel organization AAA is now making it easier for members and non-members with BlackBerry (News - Alert) smartphones to get visual and audible directions to any travel destination in the U.S.
 
AAA Mobile is available for download on the BlackBerry 8830 World Edition and BlackBerry Pearl 8130 smartphones, which are compatible with the navigation and local search application from AAA.
 
This new availability makes it easier for travelers to search and locate destinations while on the go and includes the ability for travelers to easily connect with AAA for roadside assistance. The press of a button on the BlackBerry smartphone sends the member's GPS location is to AAA and connects them to roadside assistance services when needed.
 
"Now business travelers can use a BlackBerry smartphone to search for a AAA Diamond Rated restaurant or hotel, and members can send AAA their GPS location if they require roadside assistance," said Marshall L. Doney, Vice President, Automotive at AAA.
 
AAA Mobile's location-based services platform is powered by Networks In Motion (News - Alert) (NIM) and is available for download for a monthly subscription price of $9.99.
