PR — NAVTEQ, a leading global provider of digital map
data for location-based solutions and vehicle navigation, is showcasing
a broad scope of cutting-edge mapping solutions and devices at the 2009
International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas (booth
#36226, South Hall). The booth features two distinct demonstration
areas: NAVTEQ product and services and an impressive "device wall"
featuring a wide range of brand name devices and navigation systems
powered by NAVTEQ data. A highlight of the booth will be the unveiling
of two significant NAVTEQ product offerings: NAVTEQ LocationPoint
Advertising and dynamic POI content.
— NAVTEQ LocationPoint Advertising: A new
mobile location-based advertising service that offers location aware
applications and devices a turnkey approach for subsidizing high value
content services. The service enables advertisers to reach and engage
consumers where and when they are making shopping and purchasing
decisions. Additionally, advertisers are able to proactively promote
their locations with interactive targeting of consumers in the vicinity
of their storefronts. For more information on NAVTEQ LocationPoint,

— Point of Interest (POI) Content: 2009 CES will mark the first
time NAVTEQ demonstrates three integral offerings of its dynamic POI
content portfolio: Air Travel Status, Event Listings and Fuel Prices.
NAVTEQ dynamic POI content — launching first in the U.S., with
expansion to Europe thereafter — brings the map to life with robust,
relevant and real-time information that lends itself to quick and
flexible integration into location- aware navigation applications.
Additionally, an in-booth demonstration will feature rich POI
content, which provides travel, leisure and lifestyle content from
well-known, high quality brands. In fact, at CES, NAVTEQ will discuss
significant additions to its rich POI content portfolio from Travel
Channel and Yelp.
As with all POI content products from NAVTEQ, content from these
new products is precisely geocoded and matched to Core POI on the
NAVTEQ map wherever possible; these steps reduce customer costs and
speed content integration.
