City navigators, GPS rental service
Forget the map and hit the streets with City Navigators hand held GPS system. The system uses advanced satellite tracking to tell you exactly where you are and where you want to go. Simply use the touch screen to select your next destination and press “Go.” The device will calculate the best route and display the directions on a map. All you have to do is follow the arrows. It’s like having a private tour guide in the palm of your hand.
The destinations are specially selected by City Navigators and include all the best monuments, museums, markets, architectural highlights, bars and restaurants, as well as a listing of those highlights and hotspots nearest wherever you happen to be standing. Favorites include out of the way places that are off the beaten path for most tourists, but easily found using the City Navigator. In addition, the device is programmed with special guided walking routes to help give you the best possible overview of the city. Perfect for those with limited time or just a limited sense of direction.
In addition to the handheld device, City Navigators also offers a more durable “bike” version that attaches to your handlebars. The Navigator includes special bike routes throughout Amsterdam and the surrounding countryside for those looking to explore beyond the city center.
The City Navigator is also handy for newly arrived expats looking to get to know the city or just find the best way to the office. Shopping centers, launder mats and other practical locales are also programmed into the device to help make you feel like a local in no time.
