Mapping and GPS applications have gradually been improved to offer us guides that accurately adapt to the features of each user. That's the case of the app Microsoft Path Guide.
This application works just like a pedestrian navigator that takes into account the most important traits and physical features of each user to offer indications with greater accuracy: it's capable of detecting how they walk and the speed at which they usually do so.
Share your routes by foot
To allow this route guide to offer us instructions on how to get to a certain place in the most precise manner, we have to complete the following steps:
- Step 1: the user previously has to register a walk. This is how the app will learn about the specific features of the user's walking pattern and build its references.
- Step 2: the data is shared on the cloud and compared to other users.
- Step 3: once online, the app can compare and sync any path to those followed by other users to offer more precise data.
Any route followed by the user is shared so that any other person can resort to it. It can be very useful in certain situations, such as finding a store inside a shopping mall, a desk at a station or airport, an office in a building... and all the latter in real time.
These are the main features and functions that you'll find in the APK of this GPS navigator for side-walkers:
- Register your prints and go back to the starting point if you need to.
- Includes supportive elements such as images and voice notes for each route.
- Registers the data in meters and includes steps, turns, and stairs.
