Motorola Invests in GPS Firm - Global Locate

In another sign that location based services (LBS) are going to be here to stay, Motorola announced that they have invested in a privately held firm, Global Locate. They are a firm that specializes in A-GPS or Assisted GPS technology. So, your GPS phone doesn't work so well in the concrete canyons of the city, or even indoors? Their technology can help.


Founded in 1999, Global Locate provides industry-leading A-GPS technology to the mobile wireless industry. The host-based semiconductor solutions bring IndoorGPS technology to handsets, smartphones, two-way radios and automotive applications.

"Global Locate is a compelling addition to our portfolio of cutting-edge technology investments," said Motorola's Warren Holtsberg. "Global Locate's technology is highly complementary with Motorola's vision of seamless mobility and we are pleased to support the company with this strategic investment."

"We are extremely pleased that Motorola has invested in our company," said Global Locate's Scott Pomerantz. "Our products and services have been adopted around the world by semiconductor manufacturers, mobile device manufacturers and wireless infrastructure providers.
