Overview of Mobile Geo

Mobile Geo offers persons who are blind or have low vision all the functionality of a mainstream commercial GPS. You can pinpoint your location, discover nearby points of interest, plan a route between specified points of origin and destination, and get instructions on waypoints along a route that you are following.


Automatic look around; announcements; Support for Microsoft Voice; Command to control Mobile Geo by voice; One-touch hotkey commands; Vibration alerts; “Getting warmer” function; Virtual mode to explore the maps from home; Powerful POI functionality; No data plan needed since maps are stored in the phone memory; Pedometer function; Announcement history feature; move your license from one device to another.
