Averna Press Release - January 7, 2010

Montreal, Canada, January 7, 2010 —Test solution provider Averna has incorporated maps from global digital map and dynamic content provider Tele Atlas into its NAVASIM Navigation Advanced Simulator for GPS receiver validation, the same maps that power many of the world's most essential navigation and location-based services (LBS). Averna customers testing navigation functions in electronic devices can now easily re-create road routes in the lab by pointing and clicking on Tele Atlas maps, instead of entering navigation waypoints manually or performing costly test drives.
Makers of smartphones, Personal Navigation Devices (PND) and in-vehicle navigation systems use NAVASIM, part of Averna's URT™ (Universal Receiver Tester) line of RF products, to test GPS and RDS-TMC (traffic messaging) signal reception in their receivers, while simulating complex vehicle trajectories and traffic conditions across the United States and Europe.

Averna Tele Atlas global digital mapsTele Atlas' global digital maps, the foundation for a wide range of personal and in-car navigation systems and mobile and Internet map applications, span more than 200 countries and territories worldwide. These maps include navigable coverage of more than 19.6 million miles of roadway and 26 million points of interest.

"As a respected leader in compiling digital maps and location content, Tele Atlas was the perfect choice to collaborate with us on NAVASIM," said Dominique Fortin, Director of RF Products at Averna. "Our navigation customers need the utmost in positional accuracy during validation testing in order for the real world to be properly represented, and Tele Atlas has helped us deliver exactly that."

"We are pleased to provide Averna customers with maps that are updated continuously through our unmatched network of sources, including input from tens of millions of GPS system users worldwide," said Andrew Plamondon, Director of Automotive, Transportation and Telematics at Tele Atlas. "By working with Averna to provide content for NAVASIM, we can further enable innovation across the navigation industry."

Also through the agreement with Averna, Tele Atlas is able to leverage NAVASIM to test the performance of its digital maps in industry-leading, in-vehicle navigation devices and systems.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
