This is one in a worldwide series of Zuti maps from Visual IT who have been producing public transportation maps for mobile devices for many years.
The highlights of this application include:
The map is hand drawn by Visual IT and provides a unique geographically based view of the city centre with many places of interest drawn directly on the background so you can easily get your bearings when traveling in and around the city.
Zuti provides the fastest route calculations of any mobile routing application (virtually instantaneous) using actual published journey times with the ability to select the quickest route or the route with the least changes.
Comprehensive details of your planned route are provided, including changes, directions of travel, number of stops, predicted journey times, etc.
Uniquely this application gives you “direction”, “towards” and “service frequency” information (not available on any other offline journey planner). Also given are alternatives for each leg of the journey.
A superb animation of your journey is displayed tracking around the map showing you exactly where you're heading.
- No Internet Connection Required
The map and routing does not require an internet connection and you will not be charged data connection fees. This also means the application runs successfully underground and on an iPod Touch. The only feature that requires an internet data connection is the “Live Info” which is optional and if used only requires a small amount of data.
Use your inbuilt GPS (will also work with iPod Touch devices) to accurately locate and track yourself within the city centre and see the nearest transportation stop and distance to it.
This is the only pubic transportation route planner with this ability.
If you have an internet connection you can access travel information directly within the application. All the currently available information on any line delays, station closures, escalators out of action & many other alerts on the system are displayed in a clear format. With this invaluable information you can then use Zuti to calculate the quickest alternative route avoiding any of the problems.
The Minute Map™ feature provides a unique view of the transport system travel times based on the start point setting. This allows the user to browse the entire map and view the travel times from the start point to all locations on the map.
(This feature not currently available on the Android version).
Tap on the map for location information, use the inbuilt search feature or choose from a list of locations. Places of interest, museums, hotels, parks, restaurant, shops, hospitals, streets, etc, are also included. The route planner will automatically suggest the nearest station to any place of interest you select.
