Frankfurt (AFP) – Finnish telecoms group Nokia is selling its mapping service Here to German car makers BMW, Audi and Mercedes-Benz for 2.8 billion euros ($3 billion), it said Monday.

The sale “should be concluded in the first quarter of 2016”, Nokia said in a statement, claiming that it will bring the company a profit of 2.5 billion euros. The three German car makers said in a separate statement that they will hold equal shares in Here.

Here — a direct competitor to Google Maps — was bought by Nokia from the US tech company Navteq for $8.1 billion in 2008.
