NAVTEQ Does Not Believe in Crowdsourcing

NAVTEQ would rather drive test and send expensive bodies out to verify. The example is given: What if you looked at a map and it had a hotel listed 3 times. They don't get it and fear changing their old school ways. This cost structure is inefficient as filters like PhotoEnforced.com get better for curating data. Nokia is the largest consumer-based phone company yet the company has no intention of leveraging this footprint to capture data. Wow, this is a major management oversight and may soon be the demise of a Nokia and Navteq divorce. There just isn't any synergy or cross-platform collaboration.
