Turn-by-Turn Navigation

deCarta’s Turn-by-Turn Navigation solution

Xplorer V8, deCarta's field-tested navigation platform, offers mobile operators, OEMs, and mobile application developers a white-label, real-time voice-guided navigation application for both smartphones and tablets. It can be configured to work as a standalone navigation application with both driving and pedestrian modes while also providing local search and mapping functions.

Xplorer leverages deCarta’s fifteen years of experience to provide more consistent, accurate routes than other navigation applications on the market. It is designed to take advantage of the location and resources of the modern smartphone Operating Systems and is compatible with both official and forked versions of Android. An iOS version will be available in the second half of 2013. Xplorer leverages deCarta’s proven server platform to provide fast address/POI lookup and re-routing with highly accurate voice and map guidance.

On the mobile client, Xplorer V8 is available as either a white-label navigation application which can be branded as needed, or as core libraries which can be quickly integrated into other applications to add mapping and navigation. There are three core libraries which can be used separately or together, including local search, map display and navigation.
