Garmin to acquire Navigon

Satellite navigation company Garmin has agreed to acquire navigation provider Navigon, which has its headquarters in Germany. Navigon will operate as a subsidiary of Garmin Ltd.

Cliff Pemble, Garmin’s president and COO, said “This acquisition is a great complement to Garmin’s existing automotive and mobile business.  Navigon has invested significantly in the European automotive OEM business, and we feel that we can rapidly expand our automotive OEM footprint and capabilities through this transaction. With Navigon, we are also acquiring one of the top-selling navigation applications for the iPhone and Android platforms – something that we expect will help drive revenue for the combined company going forward.  Combining Navigon’s and Garmin’s strengths also improves our competitiveness and standing, particularly in Europe.”

The acquisition is subject to regulatory approval.
