Wayfinder extends deal with Sony Ericsson
Mobile navigation provider Wayfinder today announced that it has extended its agreement with Sony Ericsson. The company said “it will enable Wayfinder to preload a richer, longer term navigation offering on a range of current and future Sony Ericsson mobile phones”.

To date, Wayfinder has provided a three-month trial of its Navigator application on a range of Sony Ericsson handsets, including the recently launched GPS-handsets W760 Walkman and C702 Cyber-shot and the upcoming C905 Cyber-shot phone. Additionally Wayfinder has provided a 1 year license to users of the P1i smart phone from Sony Ericsson. Wayfinder Navigation was also included in the Z780 clamshell phone, however, this model was never released in large volume and seems to have been discontinued.

Under the new agreement, the Sony Ericsson phones will feature full navigation capabilities, including lane and sign post information, which is now available as a 12 month regional, continental European or lifetime navigation offering.
