Cabbie's Mate 2012/13 2012.3.1
the author of this app says:
Following on from the amazing success of the A-Z+ Cabbie’s Mate Navigation System, developed for and used daily by thousands of the world famed Licensed London Taxi Drivers, we at Knowledge Master UK Ltd have produced a Navigationmaster special app for you, compatible with both iPad and iPhone, which embraces the comprehensive Geographers’ A-Z mapping and software used by the cab trade and those people on ‘The Knowledge’ training to become cab drivers.
If you are:-
Working in London
Intrigued by London
There is no other app which provides the comprehensive information and has such ease of use as ours.
Download will require 1.2 GB space for iPhone, 900 MB space for iPad and a Wi-Fi connection and will take between 10 and 30 minutes depending on connection speed.
Here’s what it provides.
Four Geographers’ A-Z maps. These are Super Scale Central London map, Greater London map (Master Atlas), Extended Greater London map and the Great Britain Road Atlas. Greater and Central London maps have been customised by colouring more main roads around the City of London to assist route planning; exclusive to our software. Our app contains the latest available maps which are always displayed ‘north up’. Toggling between maps is a one touch operation.
Maps can be zoomed in and out, not only by using the ‘pinching’ action but also eight levels using the + and - buttons added for even more user friendliness.
Our database contains over 23,000 up to date specially selected points of interest with full postal address and postcode. Most major hotels, embassies, theatres, stations, tourist attractions and major landmarks are also shown on the Super Scale Central London map.
Searching could not be easier. It is the fastest of any navigation or mapping application. Our amazing customised predictive keyboard and alphabetical search system finds and displays a street, postcode or point of interest within ten seconds.
When connected to GPS, your current position is clearly displayed on the map. Having selected a destination, our app automatically draws a straight, as the crow flies, blue ‘cotton line’ from your position to the chosen destination to facilitate route planning. Additionally you can select an alternative start point on the map by a simple screen touch and the app will draw the ‘cotton line’ from there to your chosen destination.
The iPhone version includes zoom in, info and zoom out buttons on the top tool bar and centre GPS, map switch and search buttons on the bottom tool bar.
The iPad version includes centre GPS, zoom in, zoom out, map switch, day/night mode, route plotting, eraser, info and search buttons on the bottom tool bar.
Both versions include an on screen simple to understand instruction manual under the information button.
Please visit our website www.navigationmaster.com to see a demo of the amazing software on our current satellite navigation units. The A-Z application contains additional features such as a trace facility, speed and traffic light camera warnings, and voice guidance with street names. Switching between A-Z maps and navigation is instant at the touch of a button. Unique to our software, destinations inserted in A-Z maps automatically generate route calculation and guidance in Navigation.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
