Nokia Location & Commerce also to handle global map update distribution

CHICAGO, Sept. 27, 2012 — (PRNewswire) — Nokia today announced that its Location & Commerce business is not only supplying NAVTEQ® Maps for Pioneer aftermarket navigation systems, but also handling the associated North American and European map update distribution for Pioneer. This major aftermarket brand joins a recent stream of leading OEMs choosing to offer drivers a superior navigation experience through automotive grade, high precision NAVTEQ® Map data.

With content at its heart, the Nokia Location Platform is a comprehensive 'Where Ecosystem' designed to help a cross section of industry customers develop premium location based applications. Part of the services portfolio focuses on support ranging from project management and marketing to logistics, ecommerce - and complete consumer care. The map update programme for Pioneer will include sales and product support, distribution as well as returns handling.

"As a technology innovator we always strive to closely engage with our consumers and Nokia Location & Commerce is providing valuable support in this area. As well as handling distribution of the map updates, they actively support our product development, with experts available to answer questions about the map database and content - including changes and additions since the previous update.  24/7 help is also available via a NAVTEQ® Map webstore," commented Yutaka Sato, General Manager, Car Electronics Business Management Group, Pioneer Corporation.

Pioneer is working to expand the frontiers of in-car entertainment by fusing audiovisual entertainment and car navigation systems using the latest technological innovations. These efforts are guided by the principle of always proposing new value – such as the NAVTEQ® Map - to consumers.
