Give tax break for Navic compatible phones and it'll be even faster! That's a bad idea. It has to be a mandated requirement. It's really not hard to add. The requirement is that the SoC - Snapdragon, Exynos, Axx , MTK kit etc - should support NAVIC amongst its existing support set, if that product ...
