Verizon Wireless Announces Availability of AAA Mobile

Verizon Wireless and AAA have announced the availability of AAA Mobile. A tool for travelers, both AAA members and non-members, AAA Mobile enables Verizon Wireless customers to find AAA-rated points of interest and quickly access roadside assistance, right from their GPS-enabled Verizon Wireless phones.

AAA Mobile subscribers can use their Verizon Wireless phones to receive visual and audible directions to any travel destination in the U.S.; locate AAA Approved points of interest, including Diamond Rated hotels and restaurants; and search more than 100,000 locations that offer AAA member savings. Subscribers can review detailed AAA descriptions for POIs on their phone, receive a map showing a destination on the mobile phone screen, and bookmark locations as favorites for quick recall in future.

If AAA members experience vehicle difficulties, AAA Mobile streamlines access to AAA's member roadside assistance service. The press of a single button on their Verizon Wireless phones sends the members' GPS location to AAA and connects callers with AAA for quick and reliable roadside assistance services.

AAA Mobile is powered by the Networks In Motion location-based services platform, and is available for download directly from select GPS-enabled wireless phones.
