Telmap Switches to TomTom for Map Data
Telmap and TomTom have announced today a long term partnership where the Intel subsidiary will use the map data, Points of Interest, Junction Views, 3D City Maps and Voice Maps of TomTom in its products and services distributed via app stores and wireless operators.

Oren Nissim, the CEO of Telmap explained to GPS Business News that “Today the map data quality of TomTom and NAVTEQ is completely equivalent. With our latest LBS developments such as M8 we required more flexibility in the map licensing terms and condition and TomTom offered us the best business model.“

Until now Telmap had been essentially relying on NAVTEQ/Nokia map data. “Telmap will continue to support NAVTEQ in its system for its customers that request this map data,“ said Oren Nissim.
