Satellite imagery provider DigitalGlobe has entered into a commercial relationship with wireless operator China Mobile, said the company in a statement. Its imagery will be used in China Mobile's turn-by-turn navigation service, GIS/fleet management service and standalone map viewer offering. The imagery will be coupled with map content from Chinese map provider, NavInfo, and delivered as an enhanced service to China Mobile subscribers.

"The opportunity to supply imagery to China Mobile, the world's largest mobile operator with more than 500 million subscribers, is a significant development for the company and for next generation mobile navigation solutions in the region," said Rafay Khan, DigitalGlobe's Senior Vice President of Commercial Sales.

DigitalGlobe imagery is also being used by YF International and Hazens in their newest navigation products. DigitalGlobe imagery will be integrated within YF International 's ACCO personal navigation device and the Golden Dolphin aftermarket embedded car navigation system.

Hazens’ next generation Car Personal Computer features satellite imagery from DigitalGlobe. The solution combines hardware, software and digital imagery in an embedded PC for automotive navigation.
