US: JVC extends contract with Infogroup for POI data

Infogroup has announced a license agreement with JVC to continue providing POI information.

The contract marks the extension of a strategic alliance that began in 2007. Under the agreement, JVC will integrate Infogroup’s U.S. Points of Interest (POI) data into high end in-car navigation devices it services.

“We are excited JVC has selected Infogroup to be the premier provider for their in-car navigation units. Our commitment to the highest quality of data combined with JVC technology makes this a winning situation for both companies,” said Jim DeRouchey, President of Infogroup Licensing. “Infogroup POI data will help JVC customers find nearby places such as eating, drinking, lodging, shopping, and personal services accurately on the map and be able to drive to store fronts through turn-by-turn directions.”

“JVC Mobile Entertainment prides itself on delivering the best performance in every product that we manufacture. Infogroup provides us with the most accurate, up-to-date points of interest in the business. We’re thrilled to work with Infogroup.” Bill Turner, Vice President, JVC USA, Mobile Entertainment Division.
