NAVTEQ verified coverage is available for trendy Montevideo neighbourhoods and shopping districts as well as the popular beach town of Punta del Este. 
The NAVTEQ map of Uruguay will initially support 3D Landmarks from its portfolio of visual content products. “Tourism in Uruguay has grown significantly in the last decade with over 2.1 million international visitors,” stated Fernando Villasol, Director South America map and content products, NAVTEQ. “Many of these visitors come from countries where navigation systems are commonplace.  With the NAVTEQ map of Uruguay, our customers have the potential to increase brand loyalty by offering these visitors navigation experiences similar to what they are familiar with in their home country.”
