About this app

Discover the world with GoodMaps Explore.

Accurate indoor and outdoor information and navigation for people who are blind or visually impaired.

On-demand and automatic updates about your immediate surroundings. With your device locked or unlocked, hear customizable location notifications. These notifications are a snapshot of your current location, and include: current direction, nearest room, street, points of interest (POIs), or keep track of one specific POI.

Customize how often you hear location information on the Configuration page. Set the frequency of notifications for direction, nearest address, nearby POIs, and more. Options include 10 seconds, 30 seconds, 60 seconds, 120 seconds, and never.

Save any POI and, outdoors, create your own favorited POIs. Select a favorite POI or address to quickly set it as a destination. Don't worry about losing your favorites; favorited POIs and preferences are automatically saved.

Accurate indoor routing for independent travel. Follow a route to a destination in mapped indoor venues.

Direction-based discovery at your fingertips. Discover the POIs in the direction you point the phone. You will hear the POIs in order of proximity.

Before you go. Set your position outdoors to a POI and explore its surroundings. Search indoor POIs and follow routes to them virtually.

• Get started quickly with help from easy, accessible tutorials.
• Search for POIs indoors or outdoors.
• Locate nearby intersections.
• Integration with Be My Eyes to provide live visual assistance.

The idea sounds perfect in practice it doesn't work. Should have worked in the Asda and at Manchester Airport. Location doesn't get picked up, it loses my location and it isn't accurate enough for me to find my way around the environment. Tried it on some TPE stations as well without success. I wish it will work in the future.

This is not ready for public release. It misses streets badly when in Look Around, and it does not do turn by turn directions nor does it have the Transit Feed Nearby Explorer had. It also does not use Google Places which makes things very inaccurate.

Hi Haylie, we're sorry to hear this. Our goal is to simplify the navigation experience so it is useful for a larger number of users. This was an intentional choice we made to lower the barrier of entry for more blind users. We are happy to provide one on one support and we are always looking for suggestions. Submit both to

Really useful app which now lets you navigate around a number of TransPennine Express train stations too!
