Whether Windows Mobile or Android, you may have stumbled across the Nav4All free navigation at some point. Although it was sometimes criticised for being a little basic, it did the job and didn’t cost you a penny.
Unfortunately, although it’s still in the Android Market and elsewhere, some 27 million users will find that it’ll no longer operate. A letter posted on the main Nav4All site states..
“It is with the deepest regret that we hereby notify you that the global navigation of Nav4All .. will go offline in 3 days. The reason .. is that the data licence agreement with Navteq (a 100% Nokia subsidiary) was not extended, in a totally unexpected manner. It is not possible to implement data from another supplier in our Nav4All systems within the short term. The Nav4All navigation system was developed for Navteq data. Nav4All has therefore been constrained to stop.”
