NavStar Technologies Reveals Details of Another Unique Feature

With the Push of One Button, Users Will Be Connected to the 911 Operator for Emergency Assistance

OVERLAND PARK, KS--(Marketwire - April 30, 2008) - NavStar Technologies (PINKSHEETS: NVST) announced today another of the many new and unique features that will be introduced as they launch their integrated all-in-one Voice Navigator™. By combining hands-free calling with GPS navigation capability, the Voice Navigator™ allows the user to make a call or to request a route with voice commands rather than inputting their request by touching a screen and taking their eyes off the road. The cutting edge functionality will transform GPS navigation and hands-free calling into an affordable, safe and easy-to-use experience.

Emergency 911 Feature

Because of the unique design concept of NavStar's second generation product, users will have the ability, with the touch of a button on the NavStar unit, to access the local 911 emergency service provider. If the user has downloaded a route, the unit will speak their current location, which will allow the user to communicate their exact location. This will facilitate a faster and timelier response for the emergency service provider.

"Our second generation product will give customers access to many very unique features," said N. Douglas Pritt, NavStar Technologies president & CEO.

"With their voice they can:
      Place and receive calls while driving totally hands-free
      Request turn by turn directions to a destination totally
      hands-free
With the touch of a button they can:
      -- Access destinations that were pre-loaded via our website
      -- Access customized points of interest for specific market
         segments
         -- RV owners
         -- Business travelers
      -- Call the local 911 operator for emergency services."

The product is expected to be available in early 3rd quarter 2008 and has a target price of below $150. For additional information about the new Voice Navigator, go to the NavStar Technologies website at www.navstarinc.com.
