AND strengthens partnership with Navmii
Navmii GPS Live now also available for Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland
Rotterdam - AND Automotive Navigation Data has strengthened its partnership with Navmii following the successful introduction of Navmii GPS Live for the Netherlands, France, Spain and Germany. AND has now delivered maps for Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland which are available in iTunes with Navmii GPS Live.
Less than one month after the availability of the Navmii GPS Live in iTunes the app was downloaded more than 40,000 times reaching number one positions across all paid for applications in France and the Netherlands as well as gaining significant market share in Spain and Germany. The app has started to create disruption on the market in rising to the five top grossing applications.
AND-Chief Executive Officer Maarten Oldenhof: “We have always said that navigation will be available for everyone for a radical low price and we are happy that 3 new countries are available. We expect to add navigation for other countries in Western Europe shortly. At the end of 2010 coverage of all Western Europe countries is expected.”
Peter Atalla, Chief Executive Officer of Navmii said: “With the launch of Navmii GPS Live, we are radically changing the cost people have to pay for fully functioning GPS Navigation on the iPhone. Turn-by-turn navigation has been priced far too high. We are glad that we now offer 3 more countries in continental Europe for less than the cost of a paper map.”
The iPhone application is available under the Navmii GPS Live brand and now also provides turn-by-turn navigation for Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland. The Netherlands, Germany, France and Spain are available since the 2nd week of April. Users can search for an address by city, street, house or postcode and are instantly routed there with voiced directions. Navmii will re-route if you take a wrong turn and provides information on the journey distance, estimated time of arrival, points of interest and live search for local facilities with integrated search. The new application can also be used with the iPad and the Ipod.
AND is the third largest supplier in its market, but the only independent one. Strengthened by its success to date, the company will continue to focus on creating long-term value for shareholders by providing digital maps for location-based services. The company focuses on the further development of its advanced database to position itself even more effectively in the market. The required investments can be financed entirely from the company’s own capital.
Navmii is a leading provider of GPS navigation solutions and location based services. Navmii is headquartered in the United Kingdom and has offices in London & Manchester, as well as Hong Kong and a software development centre in St Petersburg, Russia.
