North East Sensory Services ICT Officer, UK
"Since I bought the Trekker Breeze two years ago I've only left the house without it twice, and both times I got lost”
Charles Clark is the North East Sensory Services' ICT officer based in Aberdeen. It's his job to keep up to date with what's new in the assistive technology arena and to offer information and advice to NESS's clients, so he knows a thing or two about technology.
"I know there are other GPS options available and I've tried using some of the mobile phone apps but never really got on with them. I bought the Breeze because I like to keep things simple."

I walked to the Post Office today which is a good two miles one way. The best part, because it was such a nice day, my husband walked with me with the two Pugs as well I had Ms. Whisper (my Service Dog) with me. My husband has never really seen me walk with Whisper, my cane, and the Breeze. I walked in front as I had the Breeze. My husband offered no help except to tell me where there was ice or low hanging tree branches. He said he did not want to take away from any of my skills. He was totally amazed at my confidence and I knew exactly where I was at all times. I just have to remember to turn the volume down when I go inside, as I had the speaker attached and I had everyone turn around and then they all wanted to know about the Breeze.
The sense of freedom and triumph could probably only be understood by someone who, like me, had never been able to do something like this before unaccompanied. Thanks to the Breeze, this summer will be far less isolating for me than the last one. I've learned how to get to a mall and restaurant, my church, and a few other places including a centre where I volunteer once a week mentoring young people.

It is really satisfying to see the growth in my clients’ independence as they realize what the Trekker Breeze enables them to do.

I don't know how I ever got along without the Breeze. It has kept me from getting lost, and made traveling more efficient for me on countless occasions.
I have been using a HumanWare Trekker Breeze since August 2010 and it's the best aid I have along with my cane. I think of my Breeze as a friend and a helper so I would really like to let people know what a huge difference the Breeze can make to their independence and freedom.
Just as easy to use as your TV remote.
