Telit acquires Navman

After the earlier news this week that Gemalto (which owns Cinterion) was buying SensorLogic, another traditional M2M module vendor has expanded its capabilities as Telit acquires Navman Wireless's GPS business. Press release here.

In a market where differentiation is increasingly difficult and increasingly necessary this gives Telit another capability to weave into their modules. The combination of GPS and WWAN is critical for some applications and it will be interesting to see where they go with it.
