** Tips to have the best screen free, spatial audio navigation with waveOut:
- The phone’s back camera must be facing the same direction you are looking at. Images of the streets and house walls are analysed locally on your phone to improve localization (data is not stored or processed for anything else). You can use your phone in a lanyard or attached to your bike’s handlebar.
- Headphones are needed to hear the soundCues. Any headphone model will work. For the best experience, we recommend open headphones so you are always aware of the world around you.
-Chose between different types of soundCues: relaxing handpan melody or a more upbeat rhythm?
- Check our tutorials when you open the app for the first time!
** Route planning can be done:
-Directly on the app
-In your (desktop) browser with the web planner at https://app.waveout.app/map
-Places and routes can be saved on your account and used later for offline navigation.
** Spatial audio: the way to the most immersive navigation.
Spatial audio simulates the way people naturally understand sound locations. When a phone rings or a friend calls, you immediately turn your head. That is how waveOut’s spatial audio soundCues work: as a sound immersed in the real world.
