The new POWERVR Insider SDK 2.7 includes a navigation tutorial and access to NAVTEQ® map data.

We’ve been working with Navteq, the leading global provider of maps, traffic and location data, so that developers can have access to high-quality, realistic data sets and comprehensive tutorials to help support their application development needs.

There’s a considerable community of developers using our SDK who have extensive experience in 3D gaming or UI and would like to use that skill set to create navigation apps, too; equally there are developers in NAVTEQ’s community who are experienced with LBS but not 3D graphics.

The v2.7 update to our SDK will help enable each of these groups to cross over into new markets, as will high-quality, sample 2D and 3D map data from NAVTEQ.
