Nav N Go expands map coverage in emerging markets
Hungarian navigation software developer Nav N Go announced last week the availability of new map data products for Chile, India and China.

the new map for the Republic of Chile is expected in the first quarter of 2009, with approximately 115,000 km of road and over 61,000 Points of Interest. This follows the launch of Colombia and Argentina maps made available in 2008. These countries have been developed in partnership between Top-Map Kft, a Hungarian mapping company bought by Nav N Go in 2007, and local map data providers.

Nav N Go also announces the availability of its China mapping solution, based on Tele Atlas maps of Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau. Nav N Go iGO 8 offers Chinese Cantonese and Chinese Mandarin voice guidance as well as Traditional and Simplified Chinese as menu languages. The solution is completed by the localized keyboard and handwriting recognition software. In addition, hundreds of 3D landmarks for Mainland China are also available from the Tele Atlas portfolio.

Additionally, Nav N Go has partnered with India-based MapmyIndia to offer the navigation map data for the country. The India map supported by Nav N Go covers 202 cities at a detailed street level, over 600,000 km of roads connecting 130,000 towns and villages; and almost 450,000 POIs.
