Hi Andrew,

Actually Lazarillo does both.  It has its own navigation modes, or you can
use alternative apps, such as Waze or Google Maps.  So in fact, you can take
your pick.  It's about the best specialised GPS app out there for the blind
I'd say on Android.

All the best

Subject: [BCAB] Navigation apps on Android


Just wondering if anyone has used navigation apps on Android extensively.  I
use BlindSquare most weeks around London and use the clock face mode to
navigate.  Does anything similar exist on Android?  I know about Lazerillo
(spell) but believe it puts you in another app to do the navigation.
