TomTom to sell PNDs in China, has distribution deal


Dutch navigation device maker TomTom said on Friday it will start to sell portable navigation devices (PNDs) in China and has closed a distribution deal with a local partner.

“It is not yet clear what we can expect from the Chinese market. It is not a large agreement,” said a TomTom spokesman, adding the company’s focus will remain on Europe and North America.

TomTom makes portable navigation devices for cars and mapping software for handheld computers.
