Bosch unveils new navigation smartphone app
Bosch Navigation 1.5 includes ‘Intermediate Destinations’, which allows users to make a quick detour en-route, perhaps to stop at a service station or restaurant, without affecting the original destination when travel is resumed.
It also has a ‘Plus Routes’ tool, which offers real time suggestions of alternative routes during navigation that may offer time or distance savings – all of which are easily viewable and selectable from the main map.
A ‘Driver Assistance’ option calculates the severity of upcoming bends in the road and proposes an optimum speed to help drivers avoid unwanted surprises and increase road safety, and the built-in ‘Eco Navigation’ settings help plot a route that offers the best fuel efficiency for a particular type of vehicle.
In addition, true multi-touch helps iPhone users search and browse maps quickly and seamlessly.
All of the key features of modern sat navs are included as standard, such as an extensive POI database, real-time traffic reports, lane guidance and autozoom, making it one of the most comprehensive and customisable suites of navigation tools in the mobile market.
*For a limited time, Bosch Navigation can be downloaded at a promotional price of £26.99 (regular price £44.99). It is available to download from the App Store. http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/bosch-navigation-uk-ire/id400203215?mt=8
