Hertz NeverLost® and its GPS parent Navigation Solutions continue to find ways to focus the high beam on their comprehensive travel services that marry wireless technology for NeverLost Gen5 GPS devices with NeverLost’s versatile Online Trip Planning capabilities and real-time customer support.

Navigation Solutions has announced that Hertz NeverLost is the official Navigation Sponsor for the 30th annual Race Across America, a continuous 3,000 mile bicycle ride across the United States, hitting the road June 14-18 in Oceanside, CA with more than 300 racers from around the world. RAAM is one of the most respected and longest running endurance sports events in the world attracting amateur and professional cyclists who compete in various team relays.

Hertz NeverLost makes the perfect team mate for RAAM staff, crew, volunteers and fans as they track and follow their team through punishing terrain in Arizona and Colorado, 170,000 feet of climbing, small Midwest towns, and on to their finish line at the City Dock in downtown Annapolis, MD.

Hertz NeverLost’s exclusive RAAM Online Trip Planning website offers cyclists, crew and fans the ability to download the entire RAAM trip from the NeverLost website by accessing http://www.neverlost.com/Favorites_Sports.aspx#Cycling-RAAM and save it to a USB drive for popping into their Hertz NeverLost GPS unit on their Hertz car rental during the race period. Created with cyclists, crew and followers in mind, NeverLost’s RAAM site takes the guess work out of finding restaurants near the 55 different Time Stations. Up-to-the minute weather updates are also available along the tour via the Hertz NeverLost Gen5 device. NeverLost’s customer service team will even create the trip free for NeverLost customers and send it wirelessly to their Gen5 device within minutes or mail them a USB uploaded with their complete trip itinerary.

Unexpected destination changes along the way can also be made by NeverLost and sent wirelessly to a NeverLost device along the cross-country journey. For RAAM’s international competitors and crew, Hertz NeverLost Gen5 devices provide voice prompts in 10 different languages.

“We are proud to be the official Navigation Sponsor for RAAM and to support these outstanding athletes, their coaches and crew, and fans with Hertz NeverLost travel services and our state-of-the-art NeverLost GPS Gen5 system designed to deliver travel solutions wirelessly across America,” commented Roger Stevens, CEO of Navigation Solutions.

NeverLost’s sponsorship and special trip planning services extend to the other 2011 RAAM competitions, Race Across the West, RAAM Cycling Challenge in Oregon, July 23; RAAM Cycling Challenge in Minnesota, Aug. 20; and RAAM Cycling Challenge in Northern California, Sept. 10. The RAAM trip routes and Time Stations will be available for these races at NeverLost.com.

NeverLost banners will appear on the RAAM course, as well at the 55 timing stations coast to coast, and throughout other RAAM competitions during this summer.

Hertz NeverLost Gen5 units may be rented on Hertz full-size and above cars. A special 20% discount is available on Hertz car rentals during the tour by visiting Hertz.com and providing the discount CDP code: 18553590.
