It’s full of travel information you can access while driving anywhere on the U.S. interstate highway system.

The Talking Road Whiz is a take-along-on-the-road trip gadget that provides distance, directions and driving time to more than 80,000 services located near interstates across the United States. It also provides step-by-step driving directions and driving time between 250 cities.

The Road Whiz, a battery-powered hand-held unit, provides extra safety, security and peace of mind for your travels.

Road Whiz is a pocket-sized electronic device full of the travel information that maps don’t have.

The best part is it will give you the information in a clear, loud, “real” voice.

Simply key in the state you are in, what interstate you are on, your direction, and the mile marker; it’s that simple. Data are both displayed and spoken for ease of use.

The Road Whiz will prompt you for each of those data points and return information on gas stations, (including 24-hour and diesel) restaurants, (including 24-hour establishments), hotels and their 800 numbers, rest stops and available facilities, hospitals, campgrounds, convenience stores, malls, road help, and much more.

Road Whiz will tell you exactly how far the service you want is from your location, the exit number, distance and direction off the exit, and driving time based on your speed.

The Talking Road Whiz sells for $39.90 and is available at Office Max stores nationwide, selected Target stores, and Discovery Channel stores.

It also can be purchased online at www.ultradatasystems.com or by calling toll-free 800/274-0971.
