Navmii, a publisher of satellite navigation location-based applications for mobile phones, has announced the launch of its new community-based navigation product, NavFree. Available initially for UK and Ireland, with U.S. and Europe to follow quickly, NavFree is a free to download GPS/Satellite Navigation application for iPhone and iPad available from iTunes.
NavFree is a fully functioning GPS/satellite navigation app that allows users to search for an address by zip code, city, street or house before being instantly routed there with full voiced directions. NavFree will re-route if a user takes a wrong turn and provides information on the journey distance, estimated time of arrival, points of interest and live Google search for local facilities.
NavFree changes the face of GPS navigation on the iPhone. Anyone with an iPhone can now have satellite navigation for free. Mapping is provided by OpenStreetMap and is stored on the iPhone, making NavFree faster and more accurate than other free navigation services. What’s more, because the maps are stored on the phone, there are no mobile data charges.
Users will be able to contribute to the success of NavFree, by providing feedback on the maps, making NavFree a community built, free to use, navigation app for iPhone and iPad.
