Written by Garmin Ltd

SYDNEY, Jan. 26, 2012 -- Garmin has today announced that it will transition its map provider for the majority of its nuvi range of Personal Navigation Devices (PNDs) to NAVTEQ from February 2012. Garmin PNDs in Australia and New Zealand released from next month will join the majority of Garmin's global PND range that already trust NAVTEQ as a map provider.

"Garmin is known for providing the best navigation experience for PND users around the world," said Trevor Berrange, Managing Director, Garmin Australasia. "NAVTEQ has been Garmin's map provider in the United States and throughout most European countries for many years and they have invested heavily in the Australian and New Zealand markets to provide a quality map solution for our customers."

"We are proud to have been chosen by Garmin as the mapping provider for their class leading nuvi range of PNDs and believe this is testament to both the strength of our mapping data and our emphasis on local development," said Kirk Mitchell, Vice President, Asia Pacific Sales, NAVTEQ. "Our significant resources here in Australia and New Zealand and our relationship with Garmin in other parts of the world have allowed us to make this significant collaboration work for both Garmin and NAVTEQ."

All Garmin nuvi models released from February 2012 onwards in Australia and New Zealand will be manufactured with NAVTEQ maps onboard. Garmin's fitness, outdoor and marine ranges will remain unchanged.
