About this app

The Lazarillo App is the accessible GPS for people who are blind or have low vision! It allows you to explore the world around you and create routes with audio guidance.

With a wide range of customizability options and a diverse array of mobility tools developed using active feedback from people who are blind, Lazarillo is the solution for anyone looking to navigate accessibly.

As you move, Lazarillo will tell you about nearby places, such as the street that you are walking on, nearby intersections, businesses nearby, transit stops, and more! You can even toggle announcements of specific locations on and off in the exploration menu.

Need to route to a specific location? No problem. With Lazarillo, you can browse through nearby locations or search for a specific location and receive turn by turn guidance to your destination. You can even save your favorite locations to access them easily any time.

If buildings or other indoor locations have been mapped by Lazarillo, you'll be able to explore their interiors with audio guidance as well! For more information on getting your business mapped by Lazarillo, visit

With a host of customizable settings, Lazarillo allows you to build the perfect navigation assistant for your needs. Select a custom voice engine, choose your ideal units of measurement and direction, customize the layout of the exploration screen, and set your language of choice to get audible guidance on your terms.

Note: GPS location services are used even if the app is working in the background. This allows users to keep using the app to navigate without active usage of the screen, allowing you to enjoy the features of Lazarillo even when your phone is in your pocket or when you're using other relevant apps. Continued use of GPS running in the background can decrease battery life.

The Lazarillo app and all of its functionalities are free. All you need is a mobile data or Wi-Fi connection.

I usually travel by public transport either train or grab. And I love to hear lazarillo's announcement along the journey. giving me full description of what's around. Amazing! Those days before lazarillo long journey were very boring.

Pretty good and very helpful. Moved to Australia which google maps doesn't have detailed voice guidance in the region and lazarillo is the best alternative l. Would love to have voice guidance for walking after getting off a bus or train stop rather than changing destination to walking mode separately

I'm a sighted person who has been trying this app out because I'm helping a lady who has recently become blind. In general it seems excellent but it can seemingly forget the tracked destination sometimes; this has happened when on a bus journey of several miles I've set it to track the destination bus stop - after a few miles it stops giving updates on the distance to the tracked destination.
