Vodafone Group PLC, the world's largest mobile phone network operator, said Monday it agreed with Internet search leader Google Inc. to develop maps for mobile telephones.

Vodafone said it will, in conjunction with Google Maps, provide easy-to-use maps, local listings and search and navigation capabilities.

"Vodafone sees Google Maps as a new milestone in the relationship that both companies are developing. It is a prime example of how Vodafone, through its location service and distribution scale, can complement Google's products and unlock mass-market access to exciting services," said Frank Rovekamp, global chief marketing officer of Vodafone.
