NAVTEQ debuts map of Argentina
NAVTEQ, today has announced the release of its first navigable map coverage in Argentina. The initial NAVTEQ Map for Argentina includes over 200,000 km of road network across the entire country and up to 260 attributes per road segment.

"The increasing adoption of global positioning systems (gps) technology in Argentina creates opportunity for Personal Navigation Devices (PND) and hand-set manufacturers, as well as telecommunications carriers to develop navigation and location-based services," stated Jim Dineen director and general manager Latin America at NAVTEQ.

In the region NAVTEQ will compete with a local player, dMapas, a Chilean company offering digital maps of Chile, Argentina and Peru.
