RoadPilot signs data provision deal with Nokia

The new contract will see RoadPilot data included in a 'combined safety camera and traffic alert' application for the latest version of Ovi Maps, which will be available to Nokia customers in major European markets immediately. Roll-out across other regions will follow later in the year.

James Flynn OBE, CEO of RoadPilot, comments: "Nokia is the world's leading manufacturer of mobile phones, and recognised as a pioneer in the converging communications and location-based services industries. This agreement consolidates RoadPilot's position as Europe's leading provider of GPS safety camera data, established through our existing data provision agreements with many leading firms in the automotive satellite navigation industry."

Dr Vesa Luiro, Director, Nokia Social Location services, adds, "This agreement is part of a broader initiative to keep Nokia at the forefront in the delivery of new technologies and applications for mobile phone users. We are confident that the breadth, quality and reliability of RoadPilot's data will help improve driver awareness and road safety."

Established in 2000, RoadPilot is claimed to have produced the world's first GPS safety camera location device, and today its database stretches from Tromsø in Norway to Taranto in Italy, and from Lisbon, Portugal, to Lublin, in Poland.
