NavStar Technologies Releases Product Update to Support the $4.5M Purchase Order for the PowerSports Market Segment

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 25, 2012) - NavStar Technologies, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NVSR), a company focused on producing and commercializing products and services for tracking/monitoring and reporting on the location and condition of high-value cargo and other assets, has issued a product update to support their $4.5M purchase order for the US PowerSports market segment.

The NavStar product designed specifically for the PowerSport industry is in prototype stage and is being tested over the next two weeks and should be ready for fulfillment in May 2012. The major focus of the NavStar device and service is the recovery of stolen motorcycles and scooters.

NavStar is pleased to report great progress on developing an affordable solution to satisfy this demand.

The NavStar PowerSports device is lightweight and compact in size (1.8" x 3.5" x .8") for easy concealment and is powered by a powerful 32 bit microprocessor with large program memory to accommodate robust and versatile applications. The product supports all four GSM frequencies so it can be used anywhere in the world. Other features include a rechargeable battery, weather-resistant case, intelligent power management system, accelerator chip for detecting movement and measurement of the rate of acceleration. The service platform is designed to support the stolen vehicle recovery service but also designed with open architecture to stimulate other software applications.

"We are pleased with the product/service progress to date. This feature rich, low cost product/service offering will make protecting a motorcycle/scooter affordable for everyone. The NavStar PowerSports hardware and service offerings have been designed with input from PowerSport owners to solve several problems that have existed in this market segment for years," said N.
