Sygic Acquires OSM-Based Navigation App Be-On-Road
Slovakia-based navigation software developer Sygic has announced last week the acquisition of Be-On-Road, a turn-by-turn GPS navigation application for iOS and Android that uses free map data from Openstreetmap.
Be-On-Road was developed by Czech Republic-based Aponia Software, but this company will stay independent, the acquisition concerns only the navigation app.
In a phone interview with GPS Business News, Sygic CEO Michal Stencl explained the rationale behind this product acquisition: “This is a great acquisition that offers us a stake into the low end smartphone navigation market that uses Openstreetmap or other crowdsourced databases. This is also a protection against future competition, indeed Be-On-Road has been growing very rapidly, especially on Android. The app currently enjoys an average of 60,000 downloads per day.“
You have to navigate to get to the good.
