 NAVIGON Inc., the leading navigation software provider, today announced a
 strategic partnership with Zagat Survey to enhance the comprehensive point

     Turn-by-turn driving directions, packaged with the most comprehensive

 partnership an important industry first. Millions of consumers worldwide
 rely on Zagat Survey's ratings and reviews to make informed destination
 choices, and integrated with products Directed by NAVIGON, makes this best

 our goal of delivering trusted, reliable information to consumers when they
 want it and how they want it."

 America's Top Restaurants, America's Top Golf Courses, and Nightlife in 70+
 US Cities/Locales. Combined, these guides offer recommendations for nearly
 25,000 top destinations across America in the familiar Zagat format.
     "We are excited to introduce the Zagat information into products
 Directed by NAVIGON," said Andreas Hecht, NAVIGON's General Manager for the
 Americas. "Offering rich leisure and lifestyle information to consumers in
 some of the most popular cities in North America will provide additional
 value and differentiation to NAVIGON's roster of PND manufacturers, as well
