— February 04, 2013

TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. (TCS), a provider of secure mobile communication technology, has been chosen to provide its map, local search, location services and navigation application for the new BlackBerry 10 platform.

The TCS-powered maps application ships with the new smartphones which are due in the United States by mid-March.

The navigation solution includes maps, points of interest and traffic information. TCS is planning a series of updates to expand the feature set and to enhance the content and user experience.
 
In addition, TCS' associated Application Program Interfaces (APIs) are available for BlackBerry 10 developers. NAVBuilder Inside software components are available through APIs as part of the Native SDK developer toolkit for BlackBerry 10, providing third-party developers with functions that incorporate maps and a range of location-aware content for their applications.
