Chicago-based Navteq, a global provider of digital maps for vehicle navigation and location-based solutions, is making it tougher still for would-be-explorers to write, “I was lost alone…” dispatches

Ever since GPS navigation migrated to cell phones, it has become harder and harder to get lost in the world. Now Chicago-based Navteq, a global provider of digital maps for vehicle navigation and location-based solutions, is making it tougher still for would-be-explorers to write, “I was lost alone…” dispatches by providing map data for the new Nokia 6110 Navigator, the company's latest S60 3G smart phone with fully integrated GPS navigation.

Using the Nokia Navigator application featuring Navteq map data, the Nokia 6110 Navigator comes with detailed world maps spanning six continents and 17 million kilometers of road as standard. Each road segment features detailed attributes such as street names, address ranges, turning restrictions and one-way streets for more precise routing. There are also 50 Points of Interest (POIs) categories covering over 15 million individual items, including everything from hotels to fuel stops.

Nokia's 330 navigation/location solution, launched in the fall of 2006, is also powered with Navteq map data. The Nokia 330 Auto Navigation personal navigation device (PND) is designed to enable seamless cross-border navigation. Coverage of this product includes Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Russia, Mexico, Brazil, Australia, North America and selected APAC countries.
