Device Not Only Gets Drivers to Their Destination, But Also Does So with No Delays; Q4-LT Model to Be Featured at 2009 CES along with Other Advanced Nextar Products

Nextar(TM) , a designer and marketer of bold and new consumer electronic products with mass appeal, will soon be taking the wraps off of its latest GPS navigation unit, the Q4-LT. The unit includes a free lifetime subscription for live traffic reports that will be audible thru the vehicle’s radio system. The unit features USA and Canadian maps, which are provided on a 2GB SD card. Nextar will feature the unit at the upcoming 2009 CES in booth South 3-31753.

“As convenient and handy as a GPS device is, a major drawback, until now, has been its lack of affordable real-time information,” stated Eddy Zheng, Nextar founder. “Our new Nextar Q4-LT GPS unit eliminates that drawback as it provides live, up-to-the-second traffic reports for free. Users will know immediately if they will encounter any traffic problems that will slow their journey.”

The lifetime live traffic reports are provided at no additional charge and are available right out of the box. No activation will be required as the special feature will work the moment the system is turned on. Nextar is working with NAVTEQ(R) to provide users lifetime free traffic with discrete advertising and special promotions that are offered to users based on their location.

The unit includes a 4.3″ touch-screen display, 3D landmark and sign-post viewing, and a built-in speaker. 1.6-million points of interest, including hotels, shopping centers, gas stations, and restaurants, are included. Text-to-speech technology distinctly pronounces road names in a user-selected language of either English, Spanish, or French. Digital map data is supplied by NAVTEQ, the preeminent provider of comprehensive digital map information for automotive navigation systems.

The Nextar Q4-LT is the perfect traveling companion. In addition to its live traffic report capability, it also comes with the ability to play MP3 files as well as display JPEG images. A built-in antenna ensures signal reception. Power is supplied by a lightweight, built-in rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery. Accessories include: AC/DC adapter, car power adapter, USB cable, external RDS receiver, protection pouch, suction cup, and a stylus/touch pen.

The system measures 4.6″x 3.19″ x 0.8″ and weighs 2.3 pounds.

Pricing and Availability
The new Nextar Q4-LT navigation system with free live traffic reports will be available in Q3 2009 at leading retailers across the country. It has an SRP of $249.99 w/free lifetime traffic. The system is neatly packaged in an attention-grabbing full-color box.

New Service Revolutionizes Searching North Carolina Criminal Records

Innovative Enterprises, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of its NC2.0(TM) service to the background screening industry.

NC2.0(TM) combines the skill of an expert court researcher with powerful heuristic technology that actually pursues new leads in real time as the search unfolds. Unlike any product of its kind, the NC2.0(TM) research engine gleans relevant facts from its initial examination of the court records and digs deeper to follow developed facts to their logical ends, overcoming, in many cases, instances of applicant deception through misstatement of identifiers or clerical keystroke errors on the part of court personnel. Updated nightly through direct data from the Administrative Office of the Courts, NC2.0(TM) provides the most up-to-date snapshot of a candidate’s record currently available.

NC2.0(TM) is fully integrated with many of the background screening industry’s most popular hosted platforms and can also be accessed through a number of HR-XML compliant interface options for a truly hands-off solution.

“Clients who are searching raw AOC data through the ‘green screen’ or are using an online web-based provider to perform these searches will see the greatest benefit from NC2.0(TM),” said Clifford J. Williams, Innovative’s Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “Screening firms are having to do more with less to stay ahead of the curve in today’s economy. Searching manually using point-and-click research tools not only consumes valuable staff resources and creates a data entry burden, it also greatly raises the risk of missing pertinent information and misreporting on a candidate’s background.”

“With legacy solutions,” added Williams, “screeners rely on soundex-type logic or simple algorithms that attempt to find close name matches or slight variations in dates of birth, at best. Search using a legacy tool for ‘Rebecca Jones’ and you’re highly unlikely to find her extensive history under an undocumented alias of ‘Becky Smith’ without the help of NC2.0(TM).”

Innovative Enterprises, Inc.

Innovative serves as a strategic partner to the background screening industry as an expert provider of court research information products and ancillary services. With a focus on the mid-Atlantic region, Innovative commands an intimate knowledge of its core market gleaned from decades of cumulative staff experience in public records research, law enforcement, judicial administration and private investigation.

An industry leader, Innovative is a founding member of the National Association of Professional Background Screeners and has helped to raise the bar through its active participation in the formulation of a number of best practice guidelines for industry providers across various segments. Innovative was honored in 2008 as one of the Inc 5000 Fastest Growing Privately Held Companies in America. For more information, please visit http://www.knowthefacts.com/.

NASA Television will broadcast the annual FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Kickoff event on Saturday, Jan. 3, 2009, at 7 a.m. PST from Southern New Hampshire University in Manchester.

During the live broadcast, FIRST Robotics founder Dean Kamen will reveal the competition scenario for 2009, launching a six-week design and building frenzy for thousands of students in 1,687 international student teams.

The event also will be streamed live at NASA Robotics Alliance Project (RAP) Web site at http://robotics.nasa.gov/.

Each year, FIRST presents a new robotics competition scenario with twists and nuances to challenge both rookie and veteran teams alike. Each team receives an identical kit of parts and has six weeks to design and build a robot based on the team’s interpretation of the game scenario. Other than dimension and weight restrictions, the look and function of the robots is up to each individual team.

As in past years, NASA is playing a significant role by providing public access to robotics programs to encourage young people to investigate careers in the sciences and engineering. Through the NASA Robotics Alliance Project, the agency provides grants for 238 teams and sponsors four regional student competitions, including a new FIRST regional competition in Washington, D.C.

Kamen founded FIRST in 1989 to convince American youth that engineering and technology are exciting and ‘cool’ fields. The annual robotics competition is patterned after the engineering design course that FIRST national advisor Woodie Flowers taught at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge.

NASA participation in the FIRST program is provided through the NASA Headquarters Science Mission Directorate, Washington, and is directed by Dave Lavery.

NASA TV’s Public, Education and Media channels are available on an MPEG-2 digital C-band signal accessed via satellite AMC-6, at 72 degrees west longitude, transponder 17C, 4040 MHz, vertical polarization. For additional information go to: http://www.nasa.gov/ntv
