LBS platform supplier deCarta and Appello, the supplier of Wisepilot, an off-board navigation and local search service, today announced that they have reached an agreement with LG Electronics, Inc. (LG) to install navigation and local search services on LG feature phones worldwide.

Under the agreement with LG, deCarta will supply the Appello Wisepilot navigation application built on deCarta’s Drill Down Server (DDS) in over 40 countries. The solution will be pre-installed on all feature phones giving LG users a free 30-day trial period, followed by the option to continue the service under a daily, 6- or 12-month subscription plan.

“The Wisepilot solution is unique in its ability to provide excellent navigation as well as localized content for different regions”, said DooWhan (Paul) Sang, Vice President of LG Electronics. We feel that this addition will continue to differentiate the LG user experience.”
