On the basis of WLAN localisation new applications are possible which make life easier. New tools are offered so that users of mobile phones or handhelds can benefit from the information they can get – mostly free of charge. The tools provide possibilities to identify the own position, to easily find points of interest (e.g. restaurant, hospital, pharmacy, townhall, park house, toilets), the car (when parking position was forgotten) and so on. Special applications like a routing service including traffic information and traffic jam announcer or additional information like events nearby may also be available.
