Let’s explore the 3 types of alerts:
1) Eco Alerts
As governments put in place measures across major cities and urban areas to reduce traffic and improve air quality, a growing number of restrictions have been levied upon cars and heavy vehicles. Those restrictions range from limiting access to local residents to restricting traffic according to the type of engine or truck weight.
As you enter an eco alert zone such as a congestion charge zone, regulated Low Emission zone or Limited Traffic Zone (ZTL), you will be alerted through voice and visual message that restrictions do apply. With information updated on a daily basis,, you can be prepared before you travel to an unknown region and hence avoid the risk of penalties.
With over 1,300 zones worldwide, GeoJunxion has achieved full coverage across more than 24 countries ranging from Argentina , Belgium , France , Germany, Italy , Mexico, Netherlands, Portugal , Spain and Switzerland.
2) Health Alerts
According to WHO, one of the major outdoor health risks is linked to air and noise pollution. This type of location-based alert gives you on the spot information about potential health risks around you such as air quality, noise exposure and other personal health risk factors. You can browse through the map or get alerted once you are in one of these zones.
The regional coverage is constantly increasing. Currently, Health Alert Zones are available in the U.K, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxemburg, France, Italy , Switzerland, Austria, Spain, North America and India
3) Safety Alerts
Every year several 10’000s of people die in car crashes across the world. This app is designed to help mitigate some of the major causes of accidents by alerting drivers where their safety might be at risk due to incorrect speed limit based on road condition and location, fatigue, or even complex road layouts and visibility issues.
With the basic version, you will receive an alert for all of these potential risks. If you upgrade to the Pro version, you can customize the type of alert you wish to receive.
Safety Alert Zones are currently available in Germany, Italy and the Netherlands, however coverage is continuously expanding.
This is how GeoAlertsLive app works:
The app communicates with our GeoJunxion location server several times per minute and downloads all permanent and temporary zones around you. The app checks your current location and evaluates whether or not you are in or out one of the 3 types of alert zones. Should you be within a zone, a notification and audible alert will be made.
In order to limit the amount of unnecessary data on your phone, our smart algorithm only downloads the latest alerts around you as and when necessary.

• Can be combined with your favorite routing app. Stays in the background. No specific hardware required.
