NavLux with improved coverage for 2012
NavLux is Ukraine’s only navigation map with updated for big cities for 2011. Three levels of detail exist in Ukraine – “Premium”, “Standard” and “Extended” ones.
So, what can the updated navigation map of Ukraine NavLux boast of? For example, it covers more cities and inter-city roads of Ukraine. One more pleasant surprise is that the coverage of the Carpathian region was improved by the winter season. On the whole, NavLux consists of 25 detailed maps, which include the infrastructure of ski resorts, contact information and prices.
Dnepropetrovsk region has also undergone lots of changes. More than 5180 km of roads, about 80000 houses with addresses and more than 2000 new streets have appeared on the map.
The developers also paid attention to such cities as Yaremche, Ivano-Frankovsk, Kolomyia, and Chernovtsy. Here the level of detail was extended and updated.
More than 15000 infrastructure objects were added to the database, and the previous ones were updated.
15 inter-city highways were detailed up to the “Premium” level, and 37 ones – up to the “Extended” one.
The map has one more nice addition: thanks to the rating system you can choose a hotel at a suitable price. The hotels were classified according to three categories – cheap, medium and expensive ones. Users’ remarks were also included into the map and taken into consideration.Digital cartography and GPS navigation 15-02-2012
