New uNav! Simple, easy, 100% libre and powered by OSM, Mapzen & Mapbox! Only for your Ubuntu Phone!

I have the pleasure to anounce this new release of uNav for Ubuntu Phone :))

uNav for your Ubuntu Phone! :)

New Mapzen engine: [car|bike|walk] modes + avoid tolls

I'm really impressed with the Mapzen turn-by-turn engine quality and support. With this migration, your routes will be precise and you'll have a good turn-by-turn drive.
And yes! You can follow routes by car, bike or walking :)) Even avoid tolls on car!

Powered by Mapzen

Nearby POIs

Joerg developed an awesome feature for search near POIs from OpenStreeMap. As example, you'll find Gas Stations around you.

Nearby POIs

New indications algoritm

All the code is from the scratch, learning from the older issues and problems. Now, the indications are (should be) perfect.


Map viewer by default

The app is not using the GPS by default, then it is not draining the battery, then you can use it as map viewer too with Mapbox tiles. If you set a route, the app will start to read the GPS for geolocation.

Map Viewer

Slide results, you can call the place, center the map in there, visit its web or add it to favorites!
Slide will have useful options

Review your route before start

Are you driving? Don't touch the screen, there is an autostart countdown.

Auto review route

Review the indications too

Joerg developed this useful feature too. Click on the indication icon inside the panel, you'll see all the steps ;)
