Events: Canalys Navigation Forum USA 2008 report.

The inaugural Canalys Navigation Forum in the US was a big success. Having the opportunity to to discuss just about everything in the GPS Industry from Market Share and capitalisation, to forecasts of potential volumes and discussion of the developments in the industry is priceless.

The main messages that came from the Forum were that our cut-throat pricing market had reached maturity in just 3 years and is at a tipping point for creating profit within the markets. Moving forward we are going to see a lot of consolidation (which has already started), companies are going to start exiting the marketplace, and the remaining companies need to find other ways to retain the profit. This is starting to be seen with connected PNDs and the explosion of touchscreen smartphones such as the iPhone, Android G1, and the new Blackberry devices.

Our coverage of the event includes about 5 hours of video, some edited highlight videos, and of course a report of the key points from the presentations.
