Technology Credit Union Partners With LocatorSearch to Offer a Convenient Way of Locating Surcharge-Free ATMs Anytime, Anywhere

Tech CU Members Can Now Access a GPS Download of Surcharge-Free ATMs for Their Garmin, TomTom or Other GPS* on the Credit Union's Website

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - February 23, 2009) - Technology Credit Union announced today in partnership with LocatorSearch, a leading provider of locator applications for financial institutions, a new GPS download that will allow Tech CU members to easily find surcharge-free ATMs anytime, anywhere using their GPS device. Tech CU members can use the new download to conveniently find the nearest surcharge-free ATM to their location by simply following turn-by-turn directions with their Garmin, TomTom or other GPS device.

"We understand our members have busy lives and are often on the road, without access to a computer," said Kathleen Litman, Vice President of Marketing for Tech CU. "For that reason, Tech CU is committed to pushing our services to mobile platforms wherever possible. This new GPS download is a great example of that. It gives our members a fast, easy way to find the nearest surcharge-free ATM, which saves them being charged a fee because they used an ATM outside of our network."

As a member of the Allpoint and CO-OP ATM networks, Tech CU provides surcharge-free ATM access to their membership at more than 60,000 locations nationwide, including Target, Costco and 7-Eleven stores, Walgreens, CVS and Rite-Aid Pharmacies, and Exxon and Chevron gas stations.

To access the ATM locator service, Tech CU members can download a Tech CU GPS Points of Interest (POI) file directly from the Tech CU ATM location finder at A "GPS Download" button is available at the top of every processed search request and the appropriate GPS POI can be downloaded for several supported GPS device types.

*For more information on operating your particular GPS unit with a computer and adding Point of Interests (POI) files to your particular device, please see your GPS manufacturer's website for detailed information.
