NAVTEQ’s dynamic content includes flight status and fuel prices

NAVTEQ already provides camera alert data and real-time traffic to navigation systems, and plans to launch Air Travel Status and Fuel Prices commercially in early-2009.

NAVTEQ's Air Travel Status enables navigation systems and applications to provide flight arrival and departure information for most US domestic flights, as well as travel-related information for hundreds of US airports – including current weather conditions, overall delay status and average security line wait times.

NAVTEQ's Fuel Prices enables navigation systems and applications to help drivers to find the nearest fuel station selling the required type of fuel at the cheapest price.

Together, such information helps consumers to make decisions such as whether they have sufficient time to refuel a rental car at the nearest station before catching a flight home.

Fuel Prices data can also be configured to proactively deliver data as drivers reach certain milestones, such as miles driven or when a fuel gauge reaches a certain level.

NAVTEQ's dynamic POI content is launching first in the US, with expansion to Europe thereafter.
