Silver Navigator For Windows Phones Now Does Voice Directions!
We mentioned Silver Navigator GPS a week ago and introduced it as a turn by turn navigation alternative for Windows Phones. Well it just got a huge update today:
* Voice indications included !!!
* Allows to choose between optimize route distance or traveling time
* Huge performance improvements
* Better battery life
* Startup safety warning can be disabled
* Automatic re-calculation of route can be setup to ask for confirmation
* Several bug fixes
Read it again…yup, it has voice turn by turn directions now which, as far as I know, is a first for Windows Phones. I corresponded with the developer to ask what the level of voice directions are and here is his response “It´s full spoken instructions, like in any GPS navigator. It "reads" the next indication and the distance remaining to it, saying things like: "in 250 meters, turn right into the highway"… and so on…”
Yup, go change your pants and download it. It’ $3 but has a free trial.
This is great.
My HTC arrive came with telenav which has turn by turn voice navigation
the voice doesn’t know how to say Avenue but in my preliminary trial of the app, its pretty accurate. I wish there was a button to make it repeat what it says.
