Garmin Announces Improved Maps For Eastern Europe

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Kansas City-based, Garmin Ltd. announced today that it now features expanded map coverage for Eastern Europe. The enhanced coverage includes detailed maps of portions of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, and Croatia. The map data is provided by digital mapmaker NAVTEQ.

The enhanced map coverage will be available this month on either a pre-programmed accessory card, or already loaded in selected StreetPilot and n├╝vi personal global positioning system (GPS) navigation devices. Garmin is the leading seller of GPS navigation devices in the U.S. but holds a considerably smaller share of the European market.
