LocatioNet has launched "amAze" the UK's first free mobile mapping, navigation and local search solution for mobile phones.

amAze gives regular, Java-enabled mobile phone users access to satellite images, clear maps, route-planning, weather forecasts and local search information from anywhere in the UK.

An additional voice-guided navigation feature can be accessed using any external Bluetooth GPS device or phones with a built-in GPS.

Income from amAze is generated through ads and sponsorship which is "intelligently" integrated into the application, such as location sensitive ads displayed to the user.

LocatioNet promises that amAze will presents ads to consumers only when they are using the application, in a non-obtrusive way, and that no attempt will be made to address the user at any other time.

* Visual and voice guidance to any destination

* Highlight any required location on high quality map or satellite imagery
* Search and navigate to businesses listed in Yellow Pages directories
* Calculate the fastest route between two locations
