Today is an important day for Navmii as we’re announcing exciting news about our company and our business strategy moving forward.
We’re extremely excited to reveal that Steve Coast, founder of Open Street Maps (OSM) has joined Navmii as a strategic (Board) advisor. This is a hugely important position that will give Steve, working with our CEO/ founder Peter Atalla, the professional freedom to boost our visionary thinking and shape new product/ services launches with a focus on mapping and map data.
Over the last few years, we’ve been working hard at Navmii to create enhanced, automotive grade OSM maps, using our map enhancement platform and billions of points of mapping data collected by our community of users. Our ambition is to expand this offering, to B2B customers both as pure map data and mapping tile services to power connected driving solutions.
Steve joining our team is a perfect synergy because Navmii has had OSM maps at the core of its app since the beginning and has grown a global community of millions of users. We are a proud supporter of the OSM project and we see the opportunity to do more to contribute and be more active evangelists. Our next ambition is to be a highly competitive and customisable alternative to existing automotive grade map providers.
The best part is, our enduring commitment to OSM means that we will continue to devote our time to evolving our free and fabulous driving app to our community of users focusing on getting them to great places and experiences. And to our valued partners/ customers, we’ll grow our provision of cool data, map and navigation services.
With love and Navatars,
