Carrara, Tuscany, Italy

This territory lapped by the sea  and crowned by Alps 

has inspired us to apply our technology 

to explore land, sea and sky.

A long story short

From airways to roadways,
from blue seas to green fields

AvMap is the Italian manufacturer of smart electronics since 1994. In 30 years of activity, AvMap has led the development of the GPS technology in any sector of mobility.

AvMap was established in Italy in 1994 within the TWS Group, active in the sector of assisted navigation since 1984, and which included C-MAP, the world leader in electronic charting technology. The company made its debut in the professional aeronautical market with the EKP (electronic kneepad), a successful flight navigation system sold worldwide. 

Soon after, AvMap transferred its electronic cartography expertise from the aeronautical to the terrestrial sector, becoming a pioneer in satellite navigation solutions and fleet tracking systems. Business has then been expanded to Precision Farming, Automotive Electronics, any-environment Telematics and IoT.
