QUALCOMM Integrates GPS Navigation into its 3G modems

QUALCOMM announced an enhanced GPS navigation solution integrated in its wireless 3G modems, enabling higher accuracy, turn by turn map positioning for automotive and personal navigation applications in wireless handsets. The software will be available on QUALCOMM's gpsOne solution for use with select Mobile Station Modem (MSM) chipsets for both CDMA2000 and WCDMA (UMTS) networks.

QUALCOMM said the integration would significantly lower the cost of automotive and personal navigation on wireless handsets by eliminating the need for costly discrete GPS chipsets.

QUALCOMM noted that more than 100 million gpsOne-enabled handsets at over 40 operators globally have shipped to date.
