Tips & Features

Go anywhere with Navdy

Navigation with Navdy is easy.  Let’s walk through the many ways Navdy helps you get to your destination, whether it’s on your daily commute or a weekend road trip.

Navdy also works when you're offline, so even if your phone doesn't have reception you can get to where you need to go.

Map mode

Navdy’s Map mode shows you a clear interactive map.  Map mode shows current traffic, your route, and labels for streets and highways.  You can use the dial to zoom in and out on the map.  You’ll also see your current speed, as well as the time or your estimated time until arrival if you’re on a route.  You can find Map mode in the menu.

Turn-by-turn visual and audio directions

Navdy will show you turn by turn directions in Map mode and Dash mode.  You’ll see a distance until the next maneuver, an icon indicating the turn type, and a clear description of the road name.  When you get close to a turn, you’ll see a countdown bar above the distance.  Navdy will also speak the turn-by-turn directions to you through your car’s stereo or your phone’s speaker.  You can configure this in [audio settings link: support > Audio settings]

Junction view

When you’re driving on a highway, Navdy will show you a preview of an upcoming maneuver using Junction view. You will see the lanes of the highway at the maneuver, with blue arrows clearly indicating the lanes you should use.
