Walkit nwm is the urban walking route planner for the West Midlands of the United Kingdom, allowing you to generate optimised A to B walking routes throughout the region (see list of supported areas below). Each route includes a map, a set of written turn-by-turn directions, an estimated walking time (according to a slow, medium or fast pace), a journey distance (miles and kilometres), a calorie burn and an estimated carbon saving.
You can specify up to four locations to route via, for additional flexibility, and with one touch you can reverse your walking route for the journey back.
Taking advantage of your phone's location-awareness, the map can be set to follow you as you walk, and can even be rotated to always show the way you are facing with your phone.
Following walking directions has never been easier!
Select between a direct (i.e. the quickest) route or a 'less busy' one that will try and avoid major roads and favour off-road paths through parks and by waterways.
Link in with Bus, Train and Metro journeys by planning your walking routes from stops and stations to your destination.
Walkit Network West Midlands gives you access to free walking route plans within the following districts:
Please note that this app uses your phone's built in GPS. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
This version supports newer iPhone models, provides an improved experience on iOS 8, and fixes some bugs that could occur in some instances for some users of iOS 8 including:
* a functionality bug whereby the location map could be rendered all in blue, rather than displaying the correct map for the location
and for some users of iOS7 where occasionally:
* the 'Go' button could become entirely transparent
App start-up has also been improved under both iOS7 and iOS8
Ratings and Reviews
Downloaded earlier today and have just deleted.
It won't accept city, or from details (even using use current location) or to details
Waste of space
It's a really good app helped me get around Birmingham this morning.
Does not work
Spent half hour trying to find the location I put in and asked to calibrate 3 times in the space of 5 mins.
Don't bother with it.
