When are new maps available?
NAVIGON provides customers with the newest map data as FreshMaps and LatestMaps at regular intervals – up to 4 times annually.
The creation of digital maps is a continues process. As soon as the raw data is received from the map provider, it gets converted into it's own format and reviewed.
NAVIGON offers navigation solutions for different platforms and operating systems. Technical conditions determined by the system and the available memory space have to be considered to achieve an optimal performance for independent platforms. Therefore it is necessary to create different maps for the different platforms. The process to create a map is CPU-intensive and takes several days. It is for this reason that new maps for the varied platforms and systems are released at different times.
We always aim to provide our customers with the new maps right after the tests have concluded successfully and release them in the order of completion.
