Webraska has announced that Slovenian wireless operator MOBITEL has chosen Webraska’s “off board” navigation, for the deployment of its assisted navigation m>navigacija on mobile phones.

“The keys to success were the quality of the navigation with the Slovenian cartography as support, integrating the Navteq data with the data of a local partner”, said Webraska. The service is also completely localized, enabling voice navigation and geo naming in Slovenian language.

“Thanks to Webraska, Mobitel m>navigacija service guides users safely and easily, with clear voice instructions in Slovenian and offers complete set of 2D and 3D maps, directly on the mobile phone of our subscribers”, explained Mitja Štular, Ph.D., CTO from Mobitel. “Webraska helped us incorporate the best maps for Slovenia from local providers with the top maps of other parts of Europe and this allows us to offer the best street coverage to all Mobitel subscribers”.

The off-board solution is priced at €1.99 for 24 hours or €7.99 for 30 days and is compatible with a large number of handsets offered by Mobitel, (with internal GPS or an add-on Bluetooth receiver).
