PebbGPS - Pebble Smartwatch maps and directions

By Nathan Oates

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.

Description

Put a mini map on your Pebble smart watch, and get turn-by-turn directions to a destination!

Please also install the watchface from the Pebble App Store.

Instructions:
- Main mode: Map + current address at bottom
- Hit up button: Turn-by-turn arrow + instructions
- Hit down button: Turn-by-turn arrow + map
- Hit middle button: Pops up a menu for zoom, grayscale and GPS controls. Keep hitting middle to rotate through and/or dismiss
- Turn-by-turn requires a destination to be set in the iOS app first!

Map types: Terrain, Satellite, Hybrid and Streetmap
Map depth: Black&White or Grayscale

Walking and driving directions

Optional buzzes to alert you to upcoming turns

Address book integration

Control zoom level and map depth from the watch

Built-in battery saving techniques:
- Phone GPS shuts off after a few minutes if not using the watchface.
- Intelligent background updating to minimise CPU time in the background (iPhone 5 or later)


Please note:
You can only have one third-party iOS app talking to your Pebble at once.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
PebbGPS uses data to download maps and directions. A wifi or cellular connection to the internet is required.

What's New in Version 1.3.0

- Please unload and reload the watchface from the Pebble App Store to ensure you have the most recent version

- Optional buzzes for navigation when within 200m of a turn (~650 ft). Left is a short pulse, right is a double pulse.

- Address book integration - choose a contact, click their address and the search is done.

- Recent destination searches are now saved and can be selected from a list.

- Improved turn direction detection at "complicated" turns, such as roundabouts.

- Improved filtering of GPS drift (mainly evident at corners).

- In some instances, users were hitting the 24h IP-based API limit on the maps (especially when using "update more often"). This manifests itself as a very odd-looking map that doesn't change at all. I've implemented a few things to make this less likely, but am looking at other options to solve it completely.

- Notify users if they have location services off or if PebbGPS does not have proper location services authorisation

- A few other miscellaneous bugs fixes along the way

If you enjoy PebbGPS, or have any suggestions, please leave a rating in iTunes and/or drop me a note through the Pebble App Store

Customer Reviews

Unreliable

The idea is great in theory, but the app is incapable of locating you accurately and often changes directions when it thinks you are off course. The map is unreadable unless you are connected to wifi (which is when you would need an app like this) and the turn by turn directions are always too late. I tested out on a few routes I knew by heart, and I can guarantee you I would not have made it. Even the search for locations is unreliable and will often take you someplace you don't want to go.

All in all, I would love this app if it worked and maybe it will in the future, but right now, stick to Google Maps.

A toy...at most

Although this App has a good idea, it is at most a toy. The navigation mode can barely work because the app cannot locate you accurately. Moreover, browsing map on that tiny screen is inconvenient and dangerous. I ran actually into people a few times when trying to read the watch. All in all, it looks really cool and promising but needs improvement.

Good idea, but too hard to read

I was excited to find this app, but the graphics and rendering are too poor to be of use. Streets disappear when zoomed all the way in. Mystery areas appear in all black, giving the impression of nonexistent lakes and rivers. It has potential, but needs a lot of work before it will be worth purchasing.
