GyPSii to use Chinese map from NAV2
GyPSii, a global geo-location and mobile social networking provider, today announced it has entered into a map licensing agreement with NAV2, a Shanghai-based provider of digital map data. The deal means GyPSii users will have complete access to NAV2’s comprehensive China map database.

NAV2 is a joint venture between NavInfo and NAVTEQ. NAV2 maps are developed from NAVTEQ digital map database specifications, and built by NavInfo engineers. This agreement follows GyPSii’s map licensing deal with NAVTEQ in February for the rest of the world. The Chinese licensed map database contains coverage of more than 980 cities and five million local points of interest (POIs).

GyPSii has recently boosted its infrastructure in China with the opening of a Data Centre in Shanghai and a partnership announcement with China Unicom and Shanghai Rannuo to launch GyPSii during the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. GyPSii has also been made available to members of the Dopod Club, the exclusive online community for Dopod device users in China.
