Navfree Hits 10 Million Users
Today, mobile GPS navigation provider Navfree announces its 10 millionth registered user, with 10,188,000 downloads of the app achieved in just two years.
UK start-up Navfree, now a ‘major player’* in mobile navigation, is the number one free GPS navigation app in the US on Android and in the UK on both iOS and Android. It is available in more than 30 countries with more than 1 million journeys made each day using the app.
Powered by Openstreetmap, Navfree’s navigation system is continually updated by users with more than 20,000 map corrections made every month, making it one of the most accurate free GPS systems available. Navfree is therefore the smart choice for iPhone 5 users who have experienced the problems with the new phone's maps.
Navfree CEO Peter Atalla said: “We are delighted to have hit the 10 million user milestone and are very grateful to all of the users who travel with us every day. Navfree is currently the number one mobile GPS Satnav app in 10 countries and with the help of our users who constantly update the maps, we aim to continue providing an unbeatable navigation system that’s free and easy to use.”
In September 2010 Navfree was the world’s first free GPS navigation app on the iPhone. An innovative offering that allows users to navigate without a data connection, Navfree’s maps are stored directly on the phone, meaning no costly data roaming charges when using the app aboard.
