Google Maps and Waze are quite good at vehicle navigation but my experience is they are difficult to use when walking. I'd like to get feedback on a mod that shows simple navigation arrows, distances to waypoints & landmarks, points of interest, and similar meta data in a format that makes sense while walking wearing the Shima glasses.
The user would start the navigation app of their choice on their mobile device and the Walkabout companion app would redirect and reformat the navigation information for the Shima glasses display.
This is something that we will have once we are a bit further down the road. It is mentioned on the website in a couple of places (see image below). In order to activate it use just enter in your destination via Google maps and the device will show the turn by turn instrcutions once you begin moving.
That sounds cool. I walk with my wife and dogs all the time and try to find new places. Being able to set a location and have an app specific for walking and have the info streamed to Shima would be nice. If i think of anything Ill message more.
