Adding to their growing portfolio of superior products, PC House (PCH) has introduced a world renowned navigational device, the Marbella GPS Systems. This device is a straightforward, easy-to-use GPS navigation system combined with extensive street atlases of over 60 countries in a super slim, sleek design with touch screen controls.

PCH Chairman S. H. M. Rishan said, “This is a must-have technology for any vehicle owner whether travelling here or overseas. Although our product is less expensive, it is equipped with the most up-to-date maps and information any vehicle owner would require.”

PCH Mobile COO Failan Saleem said: “We have built a close partnership with Maka Technologies, a telecommunication and eCommerce solution provider, where they provide the Marbella navigator, an all-in-one GPS solution with a built-in GPS receiver (module), speaker and LCD monitor which is available in multiple sizes ranging from 4.3 inches to seven inches without any connecting interface. This device is an all-in-one GPS navigator, which will route your way with its pre-loaded Sri Lankan road map with over 100,000 locations and also offers an optional service of loading specific country maps at a reasonable fee for over 60 countries. Besides navigation and route planning, this GPS receiver can also be used for land surveying, as well as coordinating tracking on land and waters.”

The Marbella GPS is the ideal solution to removing driving barriers. Incurring no setup fees or monthly charges and is reasonably priced, the Marbella GPS system is a perfect aftermarket option for automobile owners without today’s expensive built-in GPS systems.

This device allows the driver to simply select the destination and access directions from any location to the required destination with a simple touch.

With the use of technology, paper maps have become obsolete as technology has taken over lifestyles. The GPS navigational system is an easy-to-use solution that will give the driver a virtual experience with accurate directions to any part of the country plus giving the user video and music experience through its music and video player.

Hence it can also be used as an in-car entertainment system.

The device also boasts of latest features such as Bluetooth, expandable memory via compact flash and USB connectivity.

As the sole agents for the Marbella GPS systems, understanding the customer’s requirements in terms of quality and competitiveness, PCH has the confidence that this product will enhance the driving experience of Sri Lankans.

Marbella GPS Navigational devices will be available for purchase at island-wide PCH branches including PCH 9 to nine showrooms in Colombo and Kandy, and at all Auto Mirage service centres island-wide.

PCH is the new corporate brand identity for PC House PLC which was recently listed on the Colombo Stock Exchange.

The new brand identity reflects the change from a family owned business to a public company with a vision to be the benchmark for ICT in Sri Lanka. PCH was recognised as the 50th most valuable brand in Sri Lanka for 2011, in the Brand Finance with an honourable A+ brand rating.

PCH offers a total ICT product and service portfolio via 38 outlets of its island-wide distribution network.
