Toyota signs deal to get Nokia’s Here Local Search on its in-car navigation units from 2014

Nokia’s position in the smartphone market may be precarious (if improving), but its Location and Commerce (read: mapping) division has developed quite the reputation. Toyota is the latest big car manufacturer to pay cash to get Nokia’s Here Local Search installed on Mr. Toyoda’s in-car infotainment units. The Japanese giant is planning to have the software baked into its vehicles in Europe, Russia and the Middle East by early 2014. At the same time, the duo have agreed to work together on how best they can develop Here’s navigation potential even further.
