Tele Atlas and Nav N Go have announced an extended global agreement through which Nav N Go will continue using Tele Atlas maps and other products such as Tele Atlas Speed Profiles and Advanced City Models.
The agreement marks an extension of the companies’ longstanding collaboration, which began in 2004 and has seen Tele Atlas power a wide range of Nav N Go navigation solutions for PNDs, smartphones and built-in car navigation systems.
Through the agreement, Tele Atlas maps and content will also be featured in Nav N Go’s new premium software iGO primo, an easy-to-use navigation solution that features the company’s latest technological advancements.
iGO primo will leverage Tele Atlas Advanced City Models 3D display content and benefit from the expansion of 3D coverage to more cities in Europe and around the world; this innovative 3D content is also featured in Nav N Go’s iGO amigo and Nav N Go iGO 8 applications.
iGO primo further features a new Smart Route calculation, which offers optimal routes depending on the time of day and day of the week based on Tele Atlas’s Speed Profiles historical speed database. With Tele Atlas Logistics, iGO primo is able to meet the unique requirements of route planning for commercial vehicles such as trucks and vans.
“Following the launch of iGO primo at CeBIT 2010, this sophisticated and technologically advanced product quickly turned into the most sought-after software in our product portfolio,” said Tamás Vahl, Chief Executive Officer at Nav N Go.
