Year-to-date operating income was $53.8 million, compared to $62.3 million for the same period in 2005. First half net income was $39.9 million, compared to $42.0 million for the same period in 2005. Year-to-date diluted earnings per share were $0.42, compared to $0.45 for the first six months of 2005.

"We faced a number of challenges in the second quarter, including unfavorable car sales trends and delays in customer product launches, which prevented us from achieving the results we expected. Nevertheless, we remain as excited as ever about the many opportunities we see for the industry and our company in particular," said Judson Green, President and Chief Executive Officer of NAVTEQ. "We continue to invest in our database to enhance our leadership position in the marketplace and we expect better performance in the second half of the year."
