8 useful enhancements in Navigator 2.2 you should not miss out
Mapfactor Navigator 2.2, new version of the best rated offline gps navigation app for Android devices, was released at the beginning of September. This new version brings many useful changes and improvements.
1. Alternative routes for all route types
Fastest Alternative routes were introduced as a premium feature in Navigator 2.1. Navigator 2.2 now also offers alternatives for shortest and cheapest routes.
2. Redesigned Settings dialogue
Navigator 2.2 introduces a major change in the Settings menu. The new Settings are better arranged into 8 sub-groups for easier use:
- Vehicle profiles
- Map customisation
- Map manager
3. New Customisable Map Toolbar
The new customisable map toolbar will be appreciated by all users. The new toolbar is displayed after tapping on the map. Users can select which buttons to display.
4. Customisable colour of the navigation arrow
The default red colour of the navigation arrow can now be changed to any colour you wish in Settings/Map customisation/Other colours/GPS arrow colour (available only for GL rendering users).
5. Custom volume for Navigator sounds
Also new is an advanced setting for sound output. It is now possible to select a custom channel for Navigator.
6. Lane assistant
The lane assistant has been moved to the top of the screen and better-designed. Now the arrows are more visible and bigger making it easier to see which lane to use.
7. Improved Head Up Display
The Head Up Display for displaying night-time driving instructions on your windscreen has been improved for better visibility.
8. Choose which Point-of-interest icons to display on the map
In Settings/Map customisation/POI types it is possible to disable individual POI types from displaying on the map. So, for example, you can turn off shops if you do not want to see them on the map. Previously you had to disable the whole Shopping and Eating Out category which includes ten POI types.
Version 2.2 of MapFactor Navigator also brings improved Bluetooth audio, many stability improvements and faster GL rendering and other fixes.
