Open Development Platforms for Navigation Systems

by Dominique Bonte

As navigation device form factors proliferate, and the dynamic and competitive ecosystem imposes ever shorter development cycles, the availability of open development environments becomes a critical success factor for the location and navigation industry. This allows small companies to design navigation systems cost-effectively with only limited resources. While GPS-smartphones have been available to navigation software developers for several years, other embedded navigation form factors such as PNDs (Personal Navigation Devices) and in-dash factory-installed navigation systems have largely remained closed proprietary systems.
