Mapmaker AND selected to power CosmicNavigation


Navigation Maps Western Europe with more content, now widely available to end users

Rotterdam - Digital Map Provider AND Automotive Navigation today announced an agreement whereby CosmicNavigation will sell the AND maps in its navigation products. CosmicNavigation has access to all Western Europe Navigation Maps offered by AND. Through the agreement, CosmicNavigation will incorporate Navigation Maps and select Points of Interest to provide more accurate navigation, routing and location information.

CosmicNavigation will offer the AND maps in several products from their private label navigation brands. This covers PND’s, Mobile navigation and Tablet PC products that are sold throughout Europe. CosmicNavigation will also enrich the AND data with its scenic car and cycling content, as well as its Nautic maps for the Netherlands. Through the recently launched website, CosmicNavigation will keep on collecting user generated map content and use this to enrich the AND data further.

AND-Chief Executive Officer Maarten Oldenhof: ‘We have always said that navigation will be available for all. By offering our maps via CosmicNavigation on navigation products such as PND’s, more European customers will have access to the detailed maps produced by AND. I am very pleased, because it is our vision that navigation and location based services will be available for many different types of devices.’

Olivier Chevalier, Director of CosmicNavigation: ‘We are delighted to team up with an innovative partner such as AND. They know that the market is very aware of cost nowadays, therefore AND provides us with very competitive digital maps. We will use these maps in our GPS products and enrich the map with our navigation content to get a better edge on the competition.’

AND provides digital maps for location-based services and is the only independent party in the global mapping market. The company focuses on the further development of its advanced digital maps to position itself even more effectively in the market.
