AA Publishing has announced a new set of AA Smart TravelGuides, that turns any 3G mobile or smartphone into an interactive travel guide and map.
The maps, provided by the Ordnance Survey, will cover a variety of areas, with the first in the series covering London.
The product comes as a memory card which is loaded into the phone and then allows you to search for points of interest, including sights, things to do, and AA-rated restaurants and hotels.
The maps are provided at 1:10,000 scale, and with GPS functionality, there’s a moving map and record-tracking function. Additional information and photos are available to download online, from which a personal travel guide/diary can be created.
The AA plans to release guides for a further 12 European cities, plus New York, by Spring 2008. They’ll cost £24.99 each.
