PHOENIX, Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced today that it has granted DENSO CORPORATION and DENSO INTERNATIONAL AMERICA, INC. (DENSO) rights under patented technology for automotive multimedia and Global Positioning System (GPS) navigation devices.

The agreement provides rights to DENSO under Honeywell’s GPS technology, protected by numerous U.S. patents relating to mobile navigation technology.
