Navigation as a service is just the beginning

Despite this partner agreement, it costs a lot of time and money for Eindhoven based Censys BV, we are convinced that it must be able to offer a fully-fledged alternative to the current integration of Google Maps.

"The main reason for integrating HERE is the planned development of new products and services within Pitane Mobility for taxi and coach companies."

Pitane Mobility version 10 will use the following HERE services, among others:

  • Geocoding - Highly accurate mapping of geo coordinates and addresses
