HumanWare Launches the Trekker Breeze+

More Accurate for More Informed Travel

HumanWare is excited to announce a new travel tool to add to the navigation toolbox. The Trekker Breeze+ is the next generation of HumanWare’s popular Trekker Breeze talking GPS. Building upon the success of the original Breeze and based on the feedback received from visually impaired travelers, the new improved Breeze+ is the most accurate, intuitive, and effective navigation aid designed for travelers who are visually impaired.

Developing strong orientation and mobility skills is essential for successful travel for individuals with a visual impairment. Effective skills with a white cane or dog guide enable a traveler who is visually impaired to successfully and safely navigate from work to home, home to school, or among different countries around the world.

“ The integration of GPS into our guide dog training curriculum would not have been possible without the relationship we have built with HumanWare. We are excited about the new Breeze Plus because it delivers the features and upgrades our clients and instructors have been requesting. HumanWare proves once again it listens to the needs of our clients.

The changes are another example of the commitment of both Leader Dogs for the Blind and HumanWare to provide meaningful products and services. We look forward to our continued collaborative relationship and the chance to improve travel of all who ask.”

Says Rod Haneline, VP and Chief Programs & Services Officer at Leader Dogs for the Blind.

Based on popular user feedback, the Breeze+ uses the same effective design as the original Trekker Breeze while on the go. With well pronounced tactile buttons, all device functions can be operated using one hand, leaving the other hand free for your white cane or dog guide.

It’s what’s inside that makes all the difference

The Breeze+ uses the latest in GPS technology to provide you with the fastest, most accurate travel information when and where you need it. So what’s different about the Breeze+ compared to the original Trekker Breeze?

  • Significantly improved GPS acquisition time
  • When frequently using this newly updated GPS technology, you
    can expect to have a GPS connection in as little as 10 seconds
    after the device boots.

  • Greatly improved performance in urban canyon environments!
  • The urban canyon environment often found in large cities has
    always been less accommodating to GPS usage. With the
    updated GPS technology in the Breeze+, you can expect
    a consistent GPS signal, regardless of your environment.

  • Improved GPS accuracy
  • With Breeze+, you can expect accuracy of landmarks to
    be significantly improved. For example, testers have
    reported that their landmarks have been announced less
    than 5 feet from the original location.

  • Higher quality GPS signal
  • Once Breeze+ acquires the satellite signal, you can expect
    to travel with a higher quality GPS signal. This means a more
    accurate detection of your location.

Travel with confidence with Breeze+

Here are just a few of the features existing Breeze users love:

  • Traveling to a specific address or business?
  • Breeze+ provides you specific walking or driving instructions as you travel.

  • Wondering where you are?
  • Use the “Where Am I Button”. This button tells you your current cardinal direction, next intersection, nearest address and current street.

  • Curious about what you just passed?
  • The What’s Around feature lets you know what interesting points of interest are around you.

  • Worried about how you will get back home?
  • Simply drop a landmark in front of your house and Breeze+ will walk you back to that exact spot whenever you want.

  • Nervous about navigating in open areas such as a campus or park?
  • Breeze+’s open area mode allows you to use landmarked locations to get from point A to B confidently.

The Trekker Breeze+ is available now from HumanWare and its partners. If you are currently using the original Trekker Breeze, HumanWare has developed the Breeze+ upgrade program. For less than one third of the cost of a new Breeze+, HumanWare can upgrade your Trekker Breeze with this updated GPS technology.
