deCarta announces commercial availability of real-time 2-way CNAV service

Unveiled in March, the service is offered to existing and new-entrant PND suppliers, carriers, handset manufacturers, consumer brands, automotive OEMs and in-vehicle service providers.

The company's first major customer will deploy PNDs using deCarta's CNAV technology later this month. According to GPS Business News, this first customer is Best Buy.

deCarta's CNAV service provides the core technology to allow customers to quickly bring new products to market. The complete service includes customisable navigation software for the PND, hosted servers that manage the delivery of traffic solutions and other relevant content, and the wireless connectivity to connect these two.

The deCarta services include application development, design assistance for a custom UI, content provider management and delivery technology, carrier-grade hosting facilities, MVNO wireless services, device-side modem interface software, hardware reference platform, wireless gateway technology, automatic wireless provisioning and activation and new, patented navigation service technologies. Internet search is enabled through deCarta's proxy server.
