Navman and Navteq partner up

Navteq have announced an agreement that Navman will utilise the Navteq map of Australia in its entire range of portable navigation devices. Navteq is already powering the full range of Mio devices since end of last year. With this new agreement, Navteq will be the preferred map supplier for MiTAC, the company who owns Navman, Mio and Magellan in Australia.

The relationship between NAVTEQ and Navman in Australia began in October 2008 when Navman first selected Navteq to supply map data and content for its premium S-Series Platinum devices.

In addition to the industry leading Navteq map, Navman will deploy additional new Navteq content such as:

  • Lonely Planet for Navteq Travel Guide, which provides trusted insight from expert Lonely Planet writers for points of interest, helping end-users make decisions on where to stay, eat or spend their leisure time. The Lonely Planet travel guide content is matched to the Navteq Map to provide positive navigation experiences
  • Speed limit information, warning users against violation of traffic restrictions and providing information about maximum speed on a road
