Helps tourists and business travellers navigate unfamiliar cities and countries more easily and with peace of mind, helping them to enjoy their travels, without the worry of getting lost or arriving late.
This application uses location services to guide mobile subscribers to their desired destination., with instructions provided by SMS, MMS or via a voice call.
Subscribers can set their home location by calling/texting the service from that location (this helps them when they want to return home). They can use a voice menu system and keypad entry or send a text to set their desired destination. The service then provides instructions, monitoring their location as they go. Guidance can be stopped using a menu option or texting “STOP” to the service number.
This application could be enhanced to provide tourist information en route.
