Nokia today announced that its Location & Commerce business is supplying its global Transit and Pedestrian Content (TaP) for Garmin’s new Urban Guidance function. Adding this premium feature to NAVIGON & Garmin branded navigation apps will give consumers a choice of generating directions not only for driving and walking but also for public transport. Urban Guidance will initially be available via In App Purchase for the following smartphones: NAVIGON for iOS, NAVIGON for Android and also Garmin StreetPilot Onboard for iPhone.

Pedestrian centric TaP enables orientation and navigation on foot and via public transport. It includes elements such as walkways, bridges, tunnels, crossings, passages and stairs and also powers pedestrian routing across squares, parks and other open spaces. The public transport data features railways, tram and bus lines, stops, stations and access points.

“Nokia’s Transit and Pedestrian Content allows us to take a step beyond the car and provide a very effective and relevant solution for navigating cities,” explained Joern Watzke, vice president mobile phone business at Garmin Wuerzburg GmBH. “People in cities lead very busy lives and need to find the best way to get where they are going whether driving, walking or taking the bus. Using this original, high quality content, we can offer our consumers the best possible urban routing experience.”

Smarter data and expanded choices enable the development of ground-breaking consumer experiences such as Urban Guidance - the first worldwide implementation of Nokia’s Transit and Pedestrian Content. Available for nearly 400 locations around the world, TaP supports a full range of functionality and is optimised for delivery across a variety of mobile platforms. It can be used as a foundation with other visual and rich content added to develop the ultimate pedestrian experience beyond the car.

“Through an in-depth understanding of the complexities of location, Nokia Location & Commerce continues to build products and services which help guide people seamlessly to their destinations,” added Bruno Bourguet, Senior Vice President Sales and Business Development, Nokia Location & Commerce. “With Transit and Pedestrian Content at its heart, Urban Guidance represents real added value for the consumer whether driving or walking and using public transport.”

Nokia will be exhibiting at the Mondial de l’Automobile show in Paris at Hall 3, booth #213

Delivering on the needs of the ever-connected consumer has long been a focus of the in-vehicle industry. The ability of Nokia L&C to serve the expectations of today’s ‘connected driver’ via fluid location-based products and services whether at home, walking in the city or in the car will be on full display and showcased to show how both customers and consumers alike benefit from smarter data and multi-screen, multi-modal choices.
