Navman selects NAVTEQ as preferred map supplier in Australia
Digital map maker NAVTEQ announced yesterday an agreement that Navman will utilize the NAVTEQ map of Australia in its entire range of portable navigation devices. NAVTEQ is already powering the full range of Mio devices since the end of last year. With this new agreement, NAVTEQ is becoming the preferred map supplier for MiTAC (the company who owns Navman, Mio and Magellan) in Australia.

The relationship between NAVTEQ and Navman in Australia began in October 2008 when Navman first selected NAVTEQ to supply map data and content for its premium S-Series Platinum devices. Navman was previously using the Whereis map database from Sensis, which has a strategic agreement with Tele Atlas.

In the rest of the world Navman and Mio brands use Tele Atlas while Magellan is a NAVTEQ customer.
