Navman sells business to Mitac

Neither Navman or Mitac are likely to be known to Joe or Jane Consumer here in the US of A, but the astute Engadget reader or the (foreign) GPS enthusiast has surely read both names many a times over the years. Well, say goodbye to Navman as you once knew it, everybody, because they've sold their GPS biz to Mitac for an undisclosed sum. Just thought y'all would like to know why in a few months you're gonna be begging Mitac for map updates, and not the people at Navman's (former) parent company, Brunswick New Technologies.
