It’s the final dose of calming energy Lars Rasmussen needed to settle into his groove up there on the stage.

The future of Maps came from right here in Australia, and with the help of Lars, it served to shine a light down the road at the next 10 years of navigation innovation for mere mortals like you and me. This is the journey.
