There are a number of iPhone GPS applications. In addition to off-the-rack apps, business owners can also get customized applications that cover all of their needs. Let’s look at what’s available off the rack.
Turn-by-Turn with Voice
Turn-by-turn directions are helpful for many people and in some industries. While drivers who travel a regular route are typically familiar with the rights and lefts, a new route could result in lost time and reduced customer service.
There are a few free apps, but most of the better programs come with a price tag. Companies that offer free versions are usually trying to get you to buy their more expensive application.
Be very cautious about downloading any free applications from the Internet. Something that appears to be great could be nothing more than a virus that could ruin your iPhone.
One of the things you get when you deal directly with a designer is peace of mind. You know who you are dealing with and you can be sure that the program you end up with will be virus-free.
The latest mileage counters make use of GPS to accurately record the number of miles that you travel for business. This is a great tool for anyone who itemizes and is also useful for companies to verify employee expense accounts.
The programs vary in many aspects. You can type in your initial odometer reading if you are trying to keep track of your total mileage rather than a specific trip. Some of the programs have the ability to store several trips. Others do not.
Sometimes, you can enter the purpose of the trip, but if you can’t store the information in some kind of database, the feature is not particularly helpful.
The simplest applications do not include 2-D or 3-D visuals. The graphics are basic. They cover your current position in terms of latitude and longitude. They identify your current position and the direction in which you are traveling.
You may be able to type in a destination and if the destination is in the database, the device can display the distance to the destination, as well as the approximate direction you need to travel.
The simplest iPhone GPS apps can be described as gadgets. The uses are limited. Your kids might like them.
Applications of all kinds can be created for your iPhone by a good designer. When your needs are more than simple, you may want to customize.
