Navteq, a global provider of digital maps for vehicle navigation and location-based solutions, has added a new country to its Eastern European database. Included in the map data release is detailed road network information for Romania’s capital, Bucharest and coverage of the main roadways linking 15 cities with a population of 25,000 or more. NAVTEQ is a provider of comprehensive digital map information for automotive navigation systems, mobile navigation devices, internet-based mapping applications, and government and business solutions.
The addition of Romania to NAVTEQ’s Eastern European coverage makes navigable travel between neighbouring countries Bulgaria and Hungary possible. This means navigation devices can now navigate across more borders: For instance from Germany via Austria and Hungary to Romania. NAVTEQ now covers more than 11,400 kilometres of roads in Romania including points of interest such as restaurants, hotels and banks for 60 of the country’s towns and cities.
