Vodafone to Open Source Wayfinder

WayFinder is a navigation software that Vodafone Paid 31Million USD since two years

“Given our decision to stop developing turn by turn location based services as part of our core business, it seemed an obvious choice to make the code we own open source,” Voda’s internet director Pieter Knook, who led the original acquisition says in the announcement. “We look forward to seeing its continued use in all sorts of different applications in the future.”
