Navmii, a free GPS Navigation app, that used to go by the name Navfree, has been completely revamped for their new release. Navmii features a brand new UI, new maps, free traffic information, map reports, smarter search, and more.
Brand New UI & Maps
Navmii features the OpenStreetMap (OSM) mapping data which allows maps to be stored locally on your device! This means that you can select a map from within Navmii and download it directly to your device and not have to worry about using your data connection when traveling. By using OSM, Navmii will be able to publish free quarterly map updates to your device for 12 months. You’ll never have to worry about your mapping data being out of date or wrong! Use the mapping system that you can trust.
Free Traffic Information
Navmii uses your device to power a crowd-sourced traffic information system. What this does is uses Navmii’s users that are using GPS Navigation to determine traffic conditions and show you those conditions in real-time. If a section of the freeway is experiencing a slow down you’ll know about it before you get there so you can adjust your route accordingly. Best of all, you will see all Navmii users and traffic conditions directly on you map so you’ll know what’s around you.
Navmii allows users to report traffic conditions that will show up on the maps for other users to see. You can report traffic incidents, construction zones, accidents, safety/traffic camera, road hazards, as well as speed traps. Reporting traffic conditions will also allow users to leave notes and rate the condition so other users will know how minor or severe the incident is. Once a traffic report has been cleared users will no longer see it on the map, this will help users identify healthy areas of traffic.
Navmii features a powerful search engine that, since the mapping information is download directly to your device, can be used offline with no internet connection. Users can pull in search results from FourSquare, Google, What3Words, as well as local information from Navmii. This will ensure that you find that place that you are looking for with ease. Once you’ve found a place of interest, Navmii will show you what’s by that location so you can find other places to go when you get there.
Navmii is so packed full of features that you’ll never need another GPS Navigation app again! Navmii has been built for the iOS, Android, WindowsPhone, BlackBerry, and Desktop platforms. Download it to your device and get exploring!
