“Come in and try our new GPS based audio tours which will guide you through the streets of San Francisco . With the option of taking three different routes you can discover popular attractions like the Golden Gate Bridge, Lombard Street and some other hidden treasures of our beautiful city such as the Japanese Tea Garden and the Painted Ladies. Along with driving directions, our GPS technology will also offer you music, sound effects, and historical background on the sites.”
In May 2008 Antenna Audio starts the first gps guide on the history of the Berlin Wall (German/English). The “MultiMediaGuide” for pedestrians and cyclists consists of interviews, historic audio takes and video footage.

For my collection of GPS city guides: Stuttgart offers a rental system. You can also buy the software for your Windows PDA.
Two videos from YouTube on Node:
1. This one shows the nodeexplorer as the “Stourhead GPS Explorer”
2. Here is an example of a program for the nodeexplorer as “Stourhead GPS Explorer”. I like it, as it does not simply show the reality, but reconstructs the past.
Press release: Node goes live at Stourhead Gardens
