Working With NNG


The Mission & Vision

NNG revolutionized driving with the introduction of iGO Navigation in 2006. Today we are creating the next generation of smart, secure, connected mobility solutions from the cockpit to the cloud.

Our vision is to be the trusted industry partner for delivering the future of connected mobility.

Our Story


NNG was founded by two Israeli businessmen and several Hungarian technical professionals. Their goal was modest: to make navigation easy and fun to use.


We shocked the navigation industry as a startup when we introduced our iGO Navigation software at CeBIT in Hannover, which contained full Europe coverage on a 1 GB SD card. This was a truly game changing moment – for us, and the industry. We entered the PND and smartphone market, somewhat wild-eyed and out of place; but we continued to innovate and later introduced the industry’s first 3D navigation.


We recognized that in-dash navigation was a service available almost exclusively as a luxury feature in higher end vehicles. But we thought that navigation should be available in every car segment and in every market. With this in mind, we adopted our “Navigation for All” strategy and entered the automotive industry with the goal of outfitting every car around the world, from entry level cars to hypercars.

Our Global Footprint

NNG LLC. is a global company that develops the next generation of navigation and infotainment systems for the biggest automotive companies around the world. We work with the best map and content providers to improve the lives of people in as many countries as possible. We’ve mapped over 190 countries, our technologies are offered in 50 languages, we have 6 offices and 3 auxiliary offices on 6 continents, and we have nearly 500 employees who come from all over the world. Diversity is one of our core principles – whether it’s the partners we work with, the places we ship our products to, the people we hire, or the work we do. Our award-winning strategy helped us become the fastest growing company in Europe in 2014.

We're responsible

We care, and this is what makes us better. We live by our mission in the business world and in the real world. We have partnered with numerous volunteer and NGO programs to help people in need, and we are proud to mention that, so far, NNG employees have donated enough blood to save the lives of more than 10,000 people.  We are also dedicated to educating the next generation of programmers. We especially encourage young women to choose a career in programming to help close the gender gap in IT.
