New: pedestrian navigation with augmented reality on ViaMichelin iOS app

 - 17/11/2017

Pedestrians, don’t get lost anymore thanks to your ViaMichelin GPS app’s augmented reality.

It can often be confusing when you’re on foot and somewhere you don’t know - which direction you should take? Straight on? Left? Right? It’s not easy to find your bearings.

Your ViaMichelin GPS app is now equipped with augmented reality so you don’t need to wonder which way to go anymore – just follow the dotted blue lines.

GPS augmented reality uses your smartphone’s camera to take pictures of the streets where you are and highlight the route you should using dotted blue lines.

Finding your way around is easy. Not only does the map guide you, but your path is indicated in the actual environment you see around you.

ViaMichelin uses the latest functions launched by Apple, Arkit (only available on iOS 11 and iPhone 6S and more) to make pedestrians’ lives easier.

 

Enjoy your walk with ViaMichelin…
