Singapore: Telmap has collaborated with SingTel to offer personal search, mapping and navigation services to its mobile subscribers in Singapore. SingTel Xplorer enables customers to turn their mobile phones into a powerful navigation system with access to a full suite of rich places of interests (POIs) and real-time traffic updates. Xplorer comes with both Singapore and Malaysia maps.
Traffic data is collected from multiple reliable sources such as the physical locations of SingTel’s extensive mobile cell network base and traffic flow feeds. The information is analysed using advanced patented traffic science calculations, which analyses traffic movements of mobile customers and traffic flow. Data is refreshed every five minutes, resulting in high-quality real-time and historical information about traffic flows on most Singapore minor roads.
The application is fully integrated on all GPS supported handsets, including latest mobile operating platforms such as iPhone OS4, Android and Microsoft OS.
“The Asia Pacific market will play an important role in Telmap’s global strategy to lead customised and localised location based services across the globe” said, Oren Nissim, CEO of Telmap. “Telmap will continue to work closely with mobile operators and support them in offering a competitive local and valuable experience to their subscribers as part of their core services.”
“Location and navigations services are becoming more popular with customers and it is essential that SingTel provides a reliable and up-to-date solution. SingTel Xplorer will deliver a truly localised experience and will provide relevant traffic information to people on-the-go with our comprehensive traffic data feeds,” said Ying Lai Chang, Vice President Consumer Products, SingTel.
