TMW Systems announced the completion of a multi-year agreement to license NAVTEQ map data for a development program that will bring new geographic visualization and routing tools to customers of TMW’s extended software product portfolio. NAVTEQ is a provider of digital map, traffic, and location data for in-vehicle, portable, wireless, and enterprise systems.
NAVTEQ map data is now onboard most in-vehicle navigation systems sold in North America and is an increasing component of location-based-services offered via the Internet. Plans for integrating navigation with TMW’s D2Link hand-held mobile device application are also being considered.
Initial development plans call for the integration of NAVTEQ map data into TMW applications already enabled to work with mileage and routing data commonly used in the heavy-duty trucking industry. Customers of TMW operations software will continue to be able to operate with multiple legacy mileage data sources to satisfy existing contractual obligations regarding such items as driver pay or customer billing calculations. They will soon be able to add the benefit of NAVTEQ map data and content for efficient daily routing, OOR alerts, business analysis, and fleet status displays.
