NAVTEQ Announces Camera Alert Locations as a New Database Attribute

Release date: 30 Jun 2006

Geo-Referenced Speed Camera Locations Support Elimination of False Positives

NAVTEQ (NYSE: NVT), a leading global provider of digital map data for vehicle navigation and location-based solutions, has announced Camera Alert for NAVTEQT, a feature enabling NAVTEQ customers to develop applications which alert drivers to the location of cameras along their routes. Camera Alert enables geo-referencing of a variety of camera location categories and is updated and released on a monthly cycle to support its dynamic properties. The first release of Camera Alert for NAVTEQ contains the location of both permanent and pre-announced speed cameras.

'Monthly updates provide our customers with increased confidence in the accuracy of the camera location,' stated George Filley Vice President of Product Management for NAVTEQ. 'Geo-referencing the location to the NAVTEQ map further reduces the incidence of false positives for customers using the attribute.'

A false positive can occur when the camera location is no longer valid, when it has been geo-referenced incorrectly, or when the location has not been geo-referenced to the map, all of which increase the risk of the map displaying the location incorrectly. Camera Alert quality is further enhanced by NAVTEQ field analysts who while driving the roads can check for false positives, update the database, and minimise the potential for a false positive at that location.

Camera Alert supports government efforts to influence driving behaviour and the desire to alert customers to high casualty travel areas.

NAVTEQ Camera Alert is currently available in France. The United Kingdom will be released in the third quarter of 2006. Updated data for all countries will be released every month to NAVTEQ customers.
