    news German Carmakers Buy Nokia’s HERE Maps for $3.1 Billion

    How does this affect us? NAVTEQ MAPS inside our apps?


    BMW AG, Audi AG and Daimler AG will buy Nokia Oyj’s digital-map unit for 2.8 billion euros ($3.1 billion) to gain technology for connected cars that will eventually be the basis for self-driving vehicles.

    The world’s three largest makers of luxury cars will each acquire an equal share of Nokia’s HERE division, and the transaction is expected to be completed in the first quarter of next year, they said Monday. Nokia said its net proceeds on the sale will total slightly more than 2.5 billion euros.

    I hope that car owners will benefit from this.
    Hopefully they will not have to replace their very expensive "original" navigation systems having very obscure maps with "cheap" noname navigation systems having good and up to date maps, just to have useful navigation in their expensive cars.

    I have friend with M-Class Mercedes like this
    spear motors ltd sole dealers in mercedes benz jeep dodge ch 1342541073 495 d pic

    equipped with extra computer and navi system (about 11 000 euro), and I gave him cheap noname china navi with iGO and HERE maps to be able to find his home on map
    It was about five years ago, but it was real fun

    Since then he is not updating original maps because it's too expensive and he never knows what will get for that money (probably nothing worth)
    NO THANKS POSTS ALLOWED, NO LIKES NEEDED, ALL MIRRORS APPRECIATED
