Navitel Navigator update for Android devices, iPhone and iPad
NAVITEL® releases a major software update for smartphones and tablets running on Android and iOS (iPhone and iPad). Navitel Navigator 9.10 release includes a large-scale revision of the notification system when the car is approaching speed cameras and various road regulations.
New algorithm of notifications when approaching SpeedCams, high-risk road sections and service points
In the new version of Navitel Navigator the user gets notifications when following a route. The notifications panel presents a list of closest driving regulations and their remoteness. The program starts the countdown as the vehicle is approaching the closest camera, hazardous area or service point. Navitel Navigator 9.10 contains an extensive list of traffic enforcement cameras (14 types), potentially risky zones (9 types) and service stations (7 types). In case the driver chooses to attach a smartphone or tablet in a vertical position, all the notifications will be displayed in the left part of the screen, right below the navigation bar. Once rotating the device horizontally, the notification widget slides to the right side of the screen.
The software update includes a prominent notification system that will increase road safety. The driver will get timely notifications about speed regulations, locations of service points and high-risk road sections (such as zebra crosswalks, dangerous speed limit change, risky road bend etc.).
