2011The current agreement between, MiTAC and Tele Atlas, which has run since 2005 has been extended for three years. So devices like the Mio Moov will continue to use Tele Atlas maps until 2011. This is also true for the Navman range which was recently acquired by Mio.
Thanks to this new deal both Mio and Navman products will be updated with Tele Atlas' newest map technologies. This means TeleAtlas' 74 countries, TeleAtlas 3D Landmarks, TeleAtlas Digital Elevation Model, TeleAtlas Safety Cameras, and a database of 30 million POIs.
'Our navigation brands Mio and Navman offer consumers a user-friendly, content-rich navigation experience. As we further expand globally, the digital maps we will leverage based on Tele Atlas' comprehensive data collection processes - including new, qualified community content, will be pivotal to our initiatives,' said Billy Ho, President, MiTAC International Corp. 'Tele Atlas' commitment to our business and our partnership has remained constant over the years through dedicated support on marketing and retail channel initiatives, as well as on technical fronts. We are pleased to extend this relationship.'
