ADG China will help bring oneNav’s Pure L5 Mobile GNSS solution to the world’s largest mobile ecosystem

ADG China announced today that it is partnering with oneNav, developer of the world’s first pure L5 mobile GNSS receiver, to support oneNav’s efforts to develop commercial partnerships with China’s mobile OEMs, SOC providers and connected device manufacturers.

“China’s mobile-first economy has a strong need for location services that are as accurate as possible, and we’re excited to bring Pure L5 into the world’s second largest economy to meet that need,” said Bret Sewell, VP of Marketing and Business Development at oneNav. “ADG’s deep experience with China OEMs and IoT manufacturers, and its 20 years of experience working with companies like ours, will supplement our effort and timetable for real business in China,” continued Sewell.

oneNav recently announced US$21 million in new funding, led by GV. The company’s Pure L5 solution leverages modernized L5 signals from the GPS, Galileo, Beidou and QZSS navigation satellite constellations. oneNav Pure L5 is ideal for highly space- and power-constrained devices such as smartphones, wearables and IOT tracking modules.

“Mobile OEMs and other connected device manufacturers in China care about location accuracy, lower power consumption and reducing the hardware footprint in their devices. oneNav meets these needs, giving them a way to differentiate themselves in a crowded market,” said ADG China GM Chris DeAngelis.
