Also quaint: NAVTEQ sent him a letter in the mail!

Company sources report that the co-branding deal will not be renewed when it expires on Jan 1, 2011. I don’t think there was much hope for the Garmin phone, no matter who was providing the hardware/OS or other bits.
But, new Android-based phones will use Garmin’s navigation software.

A report in La Stampa cited by PC Magazine reveals that Italy has demanded that Google give residents a three day warning about when it will be capturing Street View images. The warning would be via radio and newspapers (I wonder why not via the Web?) and the cars must be clearly marked.
The Daily Mail reports that Google’s Terms of Service prevent it from using Ordnance Survey MasterMap and U.K. local authorities’ guides in its offerings. The specific issue: “‘The current Google terms in clause 11.1 allow it to reproduce, modify, publish and distribute royalty-free any data used in conjunction with their maps, whoever it belongs to,’ said a [OS] spokesman. ‘This means that Google is obtaining a free and perpetual licence to use other people’s or organisations’ data for the purpose of enhancing Google Maps.’”

Just about 3% of Germans have taken Google up on its offer to have their houses removed from Street View. On the Media asks why that country is so concerned about this data collection.
