NavStar Shareholder Update -- Potential Revenue From Current Agreements Exceed $100M Over the Next 24 to 36 Months

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwire - August 12, 2009) - NavStar Technologies, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NVSR), a multinational firm focused on developing and commercializing asset tracking and monitoring devices for vehicles and high value cargo, today released the following shareholder letter.

Dear Shareholders,

We continue to make significant progress on the customer front and have completed several distribution agreements with partners to represent NavStar in 5 different countries. The typical cycle for us to secure a distribution partner and to recognize revenue is:

        Sales lead
        Confirm Interest, validate opportunity and access scope
        Field Trial
        LOI
        Business and/or Distribution Agreement
        Field Trial
        Technology integration (wireless interface, software customization)
        Secure PO

This process takes time and the speed at which we proceed through this cycle has been lengthened by the current economic climate. In spite of these conditions we have been successful with the customers listed below. Every announcement we have made is a valid customer relationship and valid revenue opportunity.

To give you a snap shot of our customer status, I have prepared the following summary:

                      Potential Revenue
Customer           Country         Potential   Timeframe    Status
--------           -------         ---------   ---------    ------
Fixed Group        Ecuador         $ 3.0M      Now          Secure PO
GF&T               Mexico          $30.0M      Fall 2009    Distribution
                                                             Agreement
NavMex             Mexico          $ 1.0M      Now          Secure PO
Diamante           Mexico          $ 1.0M      Now          Secure PO
Anything Trucking  United States   $30.0M      Fall 2009    Distribution
                                                             Agreement
Haeng Bo Cha       Japan           $30.0M      2010/2011    Joint Venture
Lee & Associates   Korea           $15.0M      2010/2011    Discussion
Acquisition
Software Company   N/A             $20.0M      August 2009  In Negotiation

We are working on several additional customer opportunities that will be announced later this month.

We are as anxious as you are to report real revenue and to see the stock price reflect the true value of our company. We expect the initial PO from Ecuador either this month or early next month as the field trial is completed. Revenue in 2009 should be between $2.0 and $5.0M.

NavStar is still seeking $2.0M to $3.0M in longer term financing. We are approaching this fund raising on several fronts and remain optimistic that significant funding will be available in the next several months.

In the coming weeks our press releases will consist of topics relative to NavStar Technologies' previously mentioned negotiations, our funding efforts and more details about our plans for 2009 and beyond. We do listen to our shareholders, and are working hard to build value for you and for NavStar.

Sincerely,

N. Douglas Pritt
Chairman & CEO
NavStar Technologies, Inc.
