Updated database includes the entire road network and over 124,000 points of interests, enabling turn-by-turn guidance across Italy

NAVTEQ (NYSE: NVT), a leading global provider of digital maps for vehicle navigation and location-based solutions, has reached another milestone towards offering a full coverage map of Western Europe with the completion of a full coverage map of Italy.

Covering approximately 800,000 kilometres of roads, the updated database was released December 15, 2004 as part of the NAVTEQ’s Q4 2004 database release. It covers all 8,103 cities in the 20 regions and 103 provinces and the entire Italian road network from north to south including the isles of Sardinia and Sicily. It also features over 124,000 Points of Interest including approximately 8,900 hotels, 21,000 restaurants, 19,400 gas stations, 9,000 parking lots and 4,200 historical monuments.

To meet customer demand for a full coverage map of Italy, NAVTEQ leveraged a highly skilled team of field analysts and database engineers for the project. This team drove around one million kilometres over the last year to complete the mapping.

The full coverage map of Italy is now available to NAVTEQ's customers and business partners for integration into consumer and business applications*.

"Full coverage of Italy has always been one of our goals," says Denis Cohen, Executive Vice President – Sales & Marketing Europe. "We are well on our way to offering full coverage products at our high quality standard for all of Western Europe to meet the needs of our customers offering products in this region."

* Due to the complexity of the processes required to compile and integrate NAVTEQ maps into navigation systems and location-based applications, it may take up to a year before consumers will have access to these new maps for their navigation systems.
