To switch GuideDroid® into "Driving Directions," "Public Transportation," or "Biking" mode, please use the following instructions:
3: Please see the "Credits" at the bottom of this description. Thank you.
GuideDroid®, is a highly-featured, fully-accessible, mainstream GPS application for use by everyone… including individuals with cognitive (and other) print disabilities.
Once a destination address is entered, GuideDroid® can provide walking, biking, driving, and transit directions. When used for walking directions, GuideDroid® shows users where they are as they walk, and continually announces street addresses near their current walking location.
