NAVTEQ announced that Garmin will utilize the NAVTEQ map of India in its entire, new range of portable navigation devices. NAVTEQ is the leading global provider of maps, traffic and location data enabling navigation, location-based services and mobile advertising around the world.
The three, new portable navigation devices include Nuvi 1360, Nuvi 215 and Nuvi 715 and more new models are upcoming. Beyond the digital map, NAVTEQ is providing advanced content for the entire new range of Garmin devices to help driver orientation allowing for a more stress-free navigation experience. The Nuvi 1360, for example, comes not just with preloaded maps but additional NAVTEQ Visual Content such as Junction View images that help drivers navigate confusing situations and avoid difficult last minute maneuvers. This advanced content helps guide drivers, saving them time, fuel and ultimately frustration.
In addition, Nuvi 1360 device is also incorporated with Eco-route, a feature that allows drivers to track fuel usage and more, through ecoRoute’s Fuel Report and Mileage Report. In turn, drivers can focus on their fuel conservation and find fuel-saving tips along the way.
“NAVTEQ and Garmin have had a strong relationship globally, based on the common goal of bringing the best navigation experience to consumers. With this particular collaboration, we wanted to deliver content that would help guide drivers through the unique demands of India driving. Naturally, we are looking to drive the adoption of digital navigation in India and we believe drivers who use these Garmin devices will quickly appreciate the benefits” said Rajat Tandon, director, sales - india, NAVTEQ.
