AfriGIS Navigator is a complete personal navigation solution for your mobile phone. The application is built on the specific operating system of your phone and enables you to leverage the unique features of your handset.
The client installed on your handset uses the AfriGIS Navigation Server via the mobile Internet to provide dynamic, 3D navigation views and voice commands.
AfriGIS Navigator allows you to search for addresses and points of interest (POI) with results returned from AfriGIS’ comprehensive data sets.
Once an address or point of interest is found the most appropriate route from your current location can instantly be downloaded before activating the voice enabled, turn-by-turn navigation system.
Voice navigation is accompanied by a high resolution, 3D view of your route on the handset’s screen. Users can also switch to a bird’s eye view with satellite imagery, if desired.
A major benefit of the AfriGIS Navigator application is the ability to share information (POI and addresses) with other users via the Inbox feature.
This handy feature eliminates the hassle of sending written directions to your home or other locations to employees, friends or family members - simply send it to their Inbox.
The Inbox feature can also be used to dynamically update route plans for traveling sales people or delivery personnel by updating their Inbox with the next location on their route. In addition locations can
also be sent to a user’s Inbox from AfriGIS Online Maps at http://maps.afrigis.co.za.
Companies also have the option to customise the AfriGIS Navigator according to their needs – for instance, layers showing the location of branches, customers and suppliers can also be included on the interactive map.
Users can be tracked and an alert will be sent should the user deviate from a defined route or leave a specified geographic area.
