The Windows Phone-based NaviComputer, a GPS offline map and tracking app designed for hiking, biking and other outdoor activities and adventures, has now been updated with a brand new feature called "live tracking.
On updating the app and activating live tracking, users can share their location in real-time with friends or family. Users can also share a link with other people via email or social media so that these people can see the user's location live on a map - and this can be done running any browser on any Windows Phone-running device. Moreover, no registration or sign up is required to access the feature.
With the new update, the NaviComputer app, which offers impressive features such as the ability to download maps of different hiking maps for offline use, PC tool for synchronization, SkyDrive integration and more, can be transformed into the most important app the user may have installed on his device until now.
This is because the app, on updating, can act as an emergency service if the user is in some kind of trouble when on a trip alone. Apart from that, it can also help meet new people who also enjoy similar hiking experiences and wants to enjoy the joy with others who are connected.
"The new NaviComputer live tracking feature could save your life in such a situation. When live tracking is activated. NaviComputer transmits your location frequently," the official page states.
You can share the tracking link with your friends or a family member so they can follow your trip and see where you are in real-time," it adds.
