NAVTEQ Delivering Map Data, Real-Time Traffic and Weather Content to NeverLost Fleet from Navigation Solutions

CHICAGO, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- NAVTEQ, the leading global provider of digital map, traffic and location data for in-vehicle, portable, wireless and enterprise solutions, has been selected by Navigation Solutions, LLC, to provide mapping and dynamic, real-time content for their new fleet management application, NeverLost Fleet(TM). This dynamic content includes NAVTEQ Traffic(TM), as well as on demand weather. The NeverLost Fleet system, featuring dynamic, real-time content, will be showcased in the NAVTEQ booth (# 82) at Telematics Update, June 2-3, 2009 in Novi, Michigan.

Powered by NAVTEQ(R) map data, the NeverLost Fleet system combines the traditional fleet management and dispatching tasks (point naming, rerouting, resource tracking) with a full-featured driver navigation device. NeverLost Fleet utilizes a rugged, one-box unit in the vehicle, with two-way communication as well as a touch screen with tactile feedback enabling drivers to exchange information with dispatchers and the host application.

With the inclusion of NAVTEQ Traffic, NeverLost Fleet users will obtain information about road construction, the speed that traffic is moving and incidents such as accidents or sporting event- related traffic delays. Access to this information will allow the NeverLost Fleet user to make more informed routing and rerouting decisions to save time and money.

Weather information provides NeverLost Fleet users with current weather conditions and forecasts, as well as National Weather Service alerts including severe weather watches and warnings for nationwide coverage across the U.S. and Canada. The addition of this data allows NeverLost Fleet users to make informed driving decisions based on current, local weather conditions.

"The NeverLost Fleet application, with the combination of NAVTEQ mapping and NAVTEQ Traffic, will provide fleet customers with a route planning and navigation experience that provides real-world information at their fingertips," stated Dave Dale, vice president Americas Sales, NAVTEQ. "The announcement of NeverLost Fleet illustrates the shift towards additional information that makes for a more robust and efficient fleet management process ."

NAVTEQ will be featuring NAVTEQ Traffic, ADAS and ADAS MPE demonstrations in Booth # 82 at Telematics Update along with Navigation Solutions' demonstration of NeverLost Fleet.
