August 26, 2016. MAPS.ME has updated its car navigation and launched bicycle navigation for iOS and Android users.
Apart from the usual hiking and car routes, MAPS.ME can now map a bicycle route while taking the terrain into account and choosing the most convenient way for a cyclist.
Additionally, the car navigation system has been updated: thanks to a new layout, the route panel now takes up more space. Turns are shown in a separate section, and all the details are displayed in the lower panel. The usual time and route distance are now complemented by speed data. The new version also has a speed-dependent automatic zoom function.
"Here in MAPS.ME we do our best to make the app convenient and accurate. We value our users' feedback as our product roadmap is 90% based on it. Also I’m thrilled to announce that almost 40% of OpenStreetMap.org users use MAPS.ME for mapping places all over the world. This will bring the world most up-to-date maps to any individual or business completely free. This is the power of open maps”, says Eugene Lisovskiy, CEO of MAPS.ME.
