Data and software flows

From OSM to Telenav

Telenav uses OpenStreetMap data to power its Scout personal navigation apps available for iOS, Android and Windows Phone. Additionally, OSM data is used in the Telenav Scout GPS Link navigation product used in certain Toyota models in the USA and Canada [1] [2].

There is a list of OSM tags used to generate routing data for Scout based on OSM.
