Michelin's ViaMichelin to exit the PND market

Evan Blass

French paper La Tribune is reporting that Michelin subsidiary ViaMichelin will stop producing personal navigation devices, after capturing only 14% of its domestic market in the face of stiff competition from Dutch rival TomTom and others. Sixty of the firm's 170 employees will reportedly be laid off as a result of the shuttering, although warranties will apparently still be honored for products already on the market.
