MapmyIndia is India’s leader in digital maps, GPS navigation, Tracking and location aware web and mobile apps, has released India’s most powerful and advanced navigation app – NaviMaps for the iOS platform.
The Android app launched two months earlier is already very popular. Millions of Apple users in India can now enjoy this best-in-class app which features, for the first time in India, house-level navigation, regional language voice guidance (in 10 languages) and international navigation (Sri Lanka, Bangladesh & Nepal).
The app offers automatic traffic based re-routing and real-time journey updates on Facebook (does not spam the timeline, updates a single post at regular intervals) along with a superfast and responsive experience. Another distinguishing feature of are 3D & 2D landmarks bundled with panoramic view.
Most recently, MapmyIndia has launched NaviMaps – India’s most powerful and advanced FREEMIUM, Offline 3-D navigation app with house number data and live traffic information. The app is available for download on both iOS and Android platforms. MapmyIndia is backed by leading high‐tech and private equity firms, such as Qualcomm Ventures, Lightbox Ventures, Nexus Venture Partners and Zenrin Co. Ltd.
MapmyIndia NaviMaps is a ‘Freemium’ app where the user has to pay a small fee to enjoy full Pro-guidance features; this is more than compensated by the significant savings made by not having to pay any data charges, as the app is offline. This however is not the case with many other free navigation apps on offer where the user ends up paying heavy internet charges. In case the user does not activate the Pro-guidance features after the 3 day free trial, he can do so at any time in the future through in-app purchase.
Rakesh Verma, Managing Director, MapmyIndia shared, "We launched NaviMaps about two months back on the Google Play store. The response has been overwhelming. The reviews and emails received are a testimony to the great user experience NaviMaps provide. We now extend this offering to all Apple users in India who can now enjoy India’s best maps loaded with advanced features and offline functionality on NaviMaps."
