Navigational system can be a lifesaver, not to mention timesaver!
Have you ever been unceremoniously dumped off the freeway by the Highway Patrol because of an accident a few miles down the road and discovered you are now in an area that’s totally unfamiliar?
Have you ever had to pick up a neighbor’s child at a scout meeting because the neighbor got delayed somewhere?
Have you been given the address of a meeting in a nearby community but no directions?
These might seem like minor annoyances and something that you “just have to put up with.”
But actually you don’t. Not if you have invested in a navigational system like James and Terry Keh sell.
Sure, there are some cars now that come with built-in systems—of course, if the system goes out of whack and they take it to fix it---they take your car, too!
And oh, are you planning to take a vacation on the east coast and spend hours figuring where you’ll drive after you get the rental car at the airport?
You can put all that behind you!
Some of the Magellan navigation systems not only tell you how to get there, but they tell you when you arrive!
A demonstration with James Keh includes learning how to program your system in seven different languages---German to Japanese. And oh, you can have your system “talk” to you in feminine or masculine tones!
The portable system that James encourages his customers to use, has already proven useful to taxi companies, floral deliveries, police and fire services and has the potential to be everyone’s best friend.
For example, you’ve just agree to take your wife to dinner before going to the theater and when you arrive at the restaurant discover it’s out of business (burned down, closed that day, moved, etc.) The navigation systems allows you to find local restaurants—not only giving you the address and phone number (so you can use your cell phone to see if there’s a wait) but complete, turn by turn instructions on how to get there.
The potential to save time (something that no one has enough of) is endless; not to mention allowing safety services to reach their destinations faster. Currently, in addition to a shortage of employees, companies who must deliver their products often find their new employees have simply not lived in the area long enough to have any confidence about their routes.
Looking for a new home and the realtor tells you there are several places that are going on the market today? Unfortunately, the realtor doesn’t know where two of the houses are, but she’s got a map. When you get there, the property is gone because the map wasn’t exactly up-to-date. The realtor who got there first had brought his navigation system and was the first to find the property.
The system even tells you when “there is no such address.” Getting their signals from overhead satellites, there is no page turning by an operator and the reliability is phenomenal.
And what happens if you ignore the directions? The system is very forgiving; it just reroutes you and you get there anyway. And if you are getting reimbursed for your mileage, the system’s computer doesn’t mind storing that information until you can put in your bill.
Here’s a technology that everyone would like to have!
