bGPS - GPS Navigation Map with Turn by Turn Voice Guidance and Worldwide Animated Peer Location Tracking

[ This app may no longer be available for download ]

bGPS is one of the most advanced all-in-one GPS applications not only for retrieving your current location, but also for asking contacts for their location. If the peer accept request bGPS will show peer's location and animate if position change. bGPS only shows a peer's location if the peer accepts request and both users can see each other. If a user chooses to disconnect a peer, bGPS will automatically remove user/peer from each map stopping other user from viewing peer's location. bGPS has turn by turn with voice navigation, and a easy to use search bar for searching gas, food, address, or place name. bGPS users can share their location with friends and family that have access to the internet using supported web browsers.

If you run into problems (crashing). Close other apps then remove and reinstall bGPS.

2 easy ways to create a route

1. Show current location, Touch and hold map point for two seconds (Drops pin), Select Pin (Adds button), Select car button.


2. Show current location, Search for place(gas) or address ("123 Street 44112" nothing else needed), Select Pin (Adds button), Select car button.

At this point bGPS will generate a printable HTML of the route summary and display it.

All done, Now Drive. You can leave the summary open or close it.

In some cases bGPS' Narrator will skip the first voice command. If you are not in the starting point's 300 ft invisible square, bGPS will assume that the command is too old or you are indoors.

For example, the first voice command usually says something like "Head South East on Noble road toward Caledonia Ave.". Indoor Users are looking at the screen so there is really no need to read the first command. Driving Users must of passed Caledonia by the time the route calculated.

Basically, the voice is always activated during routes, so don't worry just drive and you will hear the voice command while approaching next maneuver.

NOTE: Navigation requires an Internet Connection to calculate route only. Our goal is to use the smallest amount of disk space. This will allow new users to purchase without Wifi and should not have to delete music/videos.
