Mobile Crossing and Pocket Real Estate are teaming up to provide a GPS navigation system with functionality designed for real estate agents, the companies announced today.

Thanks to technology from Pocket Real Estate, Mobile Crossing’s new WayPoint Pocket Real Estate Edition combines turn-by-turn spoken directions with complete database access to the agent’s multiple listing service out-of-the-box.

The WayPoint device also doubles as a Windows mobile PDA organizer.

This new edition of the WayPoint includes built-in mortgage, loan, home equity, loan balance, rent-versus-own analysis, and loan amortization calculators. The new QuickSearch function can locate properties by MLS number or address. The agent can queue up a number of properties at once and generate driving directions for the complete property tour. Price, location, bed, bath and other data from the MLS are provided on the screen.

In addition, area maps allow agents to quickly zoom out and preview an entire neighborhood before the client.

Other real estate capabilities of the WayPoint Pocket Real Estate edition include market statistics, hot sheets, contact management and advanced prospect/client profiling. All the functionality that normally comes with the latest edition of the WayPoint remains accessible, including real time weather and traffic, access to the national maps and the ability to hold entire regions of the United States onboard without any additional memory cards.

Mobile Crossing, founded in 2004, is a privately funded Silicon Valley company that develops Global Positioning System navigation devices.

Pocket Real Estate develops software and solutions for mobile devices, including Pocket Real Estate and Pocket Real Estate Wireless.
