CHICAGO, June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- NAVTEQ, the leading global provider of digital map, traffic and location data for in-vehicle, portable, wireless and enterprise solutions, reminds drivers to update their GPS devices to be prepared for the summer driving season.

Navigation system and portable GPS manufacturers, retailers and NAVTEQ are working together to stress the importance of the most up-to-date maps for vacation and weekend getaway travels. Map updates are available for both in-vehicle and portable GPS systems to provide drivers on the road this summer with the latest information when they need it most. Map updates can include new roads, addresses and important road trip details like gas stations, restaurants, hotels and ATM/cash machines.

According to NAVTEQ research, drivers understand the importance of keeping their navigation system maps current and want to be reminded when to update their maps. Seventy-three percent of Americans said they want to receive reminders to update the maps in their systems versus just forty-two percent in 2006.*

Now that more people are looking for Map Updates, manufacturers and retailers are making it easier than ever to purchase them. Map updates are available at participating online and retail stores: Amazon.com, Best Buy, BestBuy.com, Garmin.com, MagellanGps.com, SonyStyle.com, and Staples.com. Map updates are available via DVD, SD Card or direct download.
