The iPhone is one device that supports the software

Those selling old mobile devices for a GPS-enabled smartphone may welcome the launch of a new product.

It was announced this week that Smartnav Mobile is now readily available on a host of handsets and provides the user with access to mapping technology designed to help people get from A to B.

The software can be downloaded for models like the Apple iPhone 3G, Nokia N97 and BlackBerry Curve 8900 and is supported by a team of staff at Trafficmaster who are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

John Lawrence, sales and marketing director of the group, said: "Smartnav Mobile is quite simply one of the most significant developments in portable satnav technology for many years."

A recent episode of Channel 5's The Gadget Show looked at how modern gadgets such as the Apple iPhone 3G could be adapted with certain software to act in much the same way as a dedicated satellite navigation device.
