Ever been driving along and had the sat nav tell you to “turn left” but aren’t exactly sure where? Wikitude have tried to make your life easier by releasing Wikitude Drive.
Wikitude Drive uses your phone’s camera and overlays arrows onto the screen to show you exactly where you’re meant to be going. The transparency can be adjusted and you’ll also get to see the traffic and pedestrians in front of you. Having the route displayed over what the camera already sees means you never have to take your eyes off the road. According to the video, if you look at a conventional sat nav system for 1 second while travelling at 70mph your eyes are off the road for 100 feet.
It’s available from the Android Market. The UK version is £9.99.
