The inbuilt map provides a simple and colourful view of the city metro services with the ability to flip to the online map view when an internet connection is available. This way the user can view the online map when above ground and the transport map and route planning is still fully functional when an internet connection is not available. This provides the best of both worlds, the metro map and route planning anytime, anywhere and online maps and search when a connection is available. You can also use your inbuilt GPS to see the nearest transportation stop and distance to it.
The highlights of this application include:
Does not require an internet connection and will always be available to display a clear and detailed view of the city transport system, plus list and animate the optimum route for your journey. 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) for example “Take the Green line (Southbound) towards Yarrow for 10 mins (6 stops). Service runs every 7 minutes” which is essential when finding the correct platform and connection.
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 perfectly underground, on an aeroplane, etc. For international visitors to a city who have data roaming turned off this is an ideal solution.
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.
This is a unique feature you won't find in any other product, simply select a location and the "Minute Map" view will show you the travelling time from that location to all other locations on the map. This feature will also show you the approximate walking time and distance allowing you to make an informed decision on whether to walk or take public transport.
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. Live details of 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.
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.
