PND overlaps LBS and hyperlocal very heavily. There are active and passive approaches to all three, and lots of opportunities to crossover and integrate.
FireEagle and Brightkite are leaders in this space; tons of others in various niches and fields.

Are any of you experts in the Personal Navigation Device (PND) space? Not just the devices (ie; things like TomTom's, Garmins, cellphones, etc)... but overall platforms and infrastructure - ie; Navteq, Tele Atlas, Tele Nav, Map Quest, Google, various social networks, and others. Navigation is truly an emerging space. It includes a complex web of convergence. Simple was, I am here and tell me how to get there. Now it's, I am here, these are my preferences, here is my "profile", here is where I am going, who will "date" me along the way (business, people, etc), this is my hardware (Cell, Dedicated GPS, Laptop, digital camera, etc) and so on. Of course there are other applications, business - like fleet management, etc.
Please contact me offline if your willing to talk ��about this in more detail. My interest comes from maintaining and extending experience in this emerging market - specifically in market development (which includes all the elements I mentioned and many more). I'd love to know more from your perspective, what information sources you track, associations you find valuable, etc. Also, post here if you think others will benefit from your comments or insight.
