Wikitude Drive, the awesome augmented reality satnav app, has been available across Europe since May but today citizens of the USA, Canada and Mexico can share in its wholesome bounty. And we reckon that’s as good a reason as any to wax lyrical about its features…
Rather than offering Android users directions from a virtual map, Wikitude Drive employs your smartphone’s camera to lay its advised route over a live video feed. Accordingly, smartphone owners can avoid the confusion that sometimes occurs with what will now be known as ‘bog standard’ satnav apps.
If this all sounds a tad confusing then check out the video below to see how Wikitude Drive works in practice.
To download the app which suits your nation of residence head to the Android Market’s Wikitude Drive page. Entirely predictably, it’s another resource-heavy app that needs a high-spec handset to run properly.
