Overview

The easy all-in-one handheld talking GPS for people who are blind or low vision.

HumanWare introduces the very simple and affordable GPS for people who are visually impaired. As simple as your TV remote, the Trekker Breeze handheld talking GPS can be controlled by one hand. It verbally announces names of streets, intersections and landmarks as you walk. No need to stop passersby to know where you are... simply press a button and Breeze tells you your location on the spot. When you are in a vehicle, Breeze announces all intersections, allowing you to exit when you want.

Imagine doing your neighborhood chores freely without having to always depend on other people, without having to count your steps or always worrying about getting lost... Breeze tells you where you are, where you are going and what is around, such as stores and public services. You can get more out of your neighborhood.... A new world awaits you!

Just listen and Breeze will tell you where you are and are going!

Trekker Breeze provides you with:
  • Greater independence: You can move more on your own. No need to stop passersby to know where you are or to ask a bus driver for the next stop.
  • The ability to quickly become familiar with new routes. You can be confident with Trekker Breeze in your hand.
  • The ability to discover and benefit more from your environment.
Trekker Breeze lets you:
  • Always know where you are and where you are going on foot or in a vehicle
  • Know what is around in your location (public services and businesses)
  • Easily retrace your steps if you get lost. Simply push a button.
  • Record the routes when you learn them with sighted people so that you can use them later without assistance.
  • Record landmarks along your route, for example to get to your favorite restaurant or a friend’s house.
  • Get the step-by-step instructions from start to end.

Testimonials



Charles Clark

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."

The Trekker Breeze is a handheld GPS device with speech output, which provides additional information about your surroundings, such as street names, intersections, shops, cafes and train stations etc.

Charles is registered blind and is a Guide Dog user. He regularly travels independently.

"The last time I made the mistake of leaving the house without my Breeze I was going to the dentist, which is only a couple of minutes walk from my house. It's a route that my dog and I have done several times before so I was sure I'd be fine without it. Although I know the area really well I lost concentration momentarily and took a right fork off the street I was walking down - that was all it took for me to completely lose my bearings. Unfortunately my dog was lost too so I had to just stand and wait for someone to walk past so I could ask for help. It turned out I was only a minute away from the dental surgery.

If only I'd had my Breeze in my pocket I would have heard it announce the new street name when I inadvertently veered onto that right fork, so I'd have been able to correct my mistake straight away without being late for my appointment."

Since then, when leaving home, Charles always takes his Breeze with him for that extra peace of mind.

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.


Evelyn Martin

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.
