NAVTEQ yesterday announced at an award ceremony at the CommunicAsia trade show (Singapore) that NAVITIME is the Grand Prize winner of the Asia-Pacific edition of the 2009 NAVTEQ Global LBS Challenge.

NAVITIME's winning application, also called NAVITIME, is a point-to-point route search and navigation service that uses any major transportation method - walking, driving, trains and subway, buses, taxis and airlines - to get users to their destination.

The three runners-up also selected by the judging panel include: tenCube, Urban Team and Yoose/Fox Mobile Distribution.

WaveSecure from tencube helps users to remotely track down the geographical location of their lost phone and lock down, back-up and remotely wipe out copy of their personal data to protect their privacy.

FastFoot-Challenge from Urban Team delivers an exciting hide and seek GPS multiplayer game where, through the use of their mobile devices they can transform any park, forest, even cities into their playing field.

YLIB-J2ME Edition from Yoose and Fox Mobile Distribution is a location-based global couponing application that allows users to win coupons from businesses based on their location while playing a game or using a mobile social network on their mobile phone.
