Telenav establishes South Korea office to support the growing needs of its customers and partners in the region.

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 11, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Telenav®, Inc. (NASDAQ: TNAV), a leader in connected car and location-based services today announced the company's further expansion in Asia with Telenav Korea Limited, and the opening of its office in Incheon, South Korea, an emerging economic hub and innovation center located just west of Seoul.

The office was established to address the growing automotive innovation opportunities in South Korea, further drive business opportunities and accelerate localized product development for Telenav's automotive platform. The Incheon expansion follows the establishment of the Tokyo, Japan office in 2015.

"South Korea is very strategic as more than half of the 10 largest automotive OEMs have a significant R&D presence there. Telenav opened the Incheon office to ensure we are in a position to closely collaborate with local partners to drive innovation throughout Asia," said Hassan Wahla, President of the Automotive business unit at Telenav. "The move to establish a formal presence represents our commitment to supporting the local needs of our customers and partners in the region."

With the opening of the South Korea office, Telenav now has a presence in all of the five largest vehicle producing countries: China, United States, Japan, Germany and South Korea.
