World News: Microsoft extends and expands NAVTEQ Traffic data agreement

NAVTEQ has announced a multi-year extension of its agreement to provide real-time and historic traffic information to Microsoft.

Microsoft’s MSN Direct service, Streets & Trips desktop applications, Windows Live Local, Microsoft Automotive and Live Search for Windows Mobile services already use NAVTEQ Traffic data. This extension provides for incorporation of NAVTEQ Traffic data in additional Microsoft products.

“NAVTEQ brings a commitment to traffic data innovation that Microsoft shares,” said Erik Jorgensen, general manager for Virtual Earth and Live Search Maps at Microsoft. “Its traffic information brings the most accurate real-time and historical data and, when combined with our own proprietary content, represents some of the most compelling traffic offerings on the Web.”
