Whereis spokesperson Fred Curtis said "The new Whereis Navigator app harnesses the open nature of the Android operating system to perform in an integrated and free-flowing way. For example, the app can integrate with Android's voice recognition software, allowing customers to perform voice searches for Yellow Pages listings and nearby points of interests."
"This integration also means customers can save links to their mobile home screen that, when selected, launch Whereis Navigator and automatically direct them to a favourite destination," added Curtis.
Features include turn-by-turn spoken and visual directions, spoken street names, lane guidance, automatically updated maps, pedestrian navigation (allowing for crossings and footpaths), speed alerts, traffic incident alerts, weather forecasts, nearby fuel prices, and flight times at major Australian airports.
A free 7-day trial is available, after which Whereis Navigator costs $4 per day or $15 per month.
