PebbGPS - Pebble Smartwatch maps and directions
By Nathan Oates
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
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.
- 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)
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.
Turn-by-turn directions is available in most countries, but not completely worldwide - please see this list to see if your country is supported: https://www.apple.com/au/ios/feature-availability/
What's New in Version 2.0.3
* Fixed small bug preventing MapQuest maps from showing sometimes.
* Shortened time required for long press to drop a pin on Directions map
BTW Colour support for Pebble Time is in progress!

Maps... On your wrist
A map on your arm. Turn by turn directions. What more could you want?
The map is too dark and clunky. It needs more improvement. The
Map does not work at all. What shows up on screen is random lines and garbage, if anything at all. Save your dollar!!
