ESCORT PND Uses deCarta SDK, NAVTEQ Maps
The recently released PASSPORT iQ from ESCORT, a Personal Navigation Device that combines turn-by-turn navigation with laser, radar, red-light camera and speedcam detection is using NAVTEQ map data and the NavSDK navigation platform from deCarta, we learned this week.

NAVTEQ also said its real-time traffic data will be included in all PASSPORTiQ devices beginning in the first quarter of 2011.

The 5-inch touchscreen PASSPORT iQ is priced at $650 and the product comes with a free 90-day subscription to Escort's Defender Database of traffic-light, speed-trap, and speed-camera locations. It costs $30 for a one-year subscription and $50 for three years.
