The Android Cabbie’s Mate app is now based on subscription. The standard annual subscription works out to 57p a week. This is still value for money to ALWAYS have the latest 4 A-Z maps and POI at your fingertips. The Cabbie’s Mate A-Z app is the best map app for taxi drivers, knowledge boys and girls or people who enjoy using the A-Z maps. There is no other map app which provides the comprehensive information and has such ease of use as ours.
As long as you are subscribed, you will always have the latest A-Z maps even if we release them just after your purchase and you will still be able to download them for free. At the end of subscription, the app will cease to work if the subscription is not renewed. This new structured app will allow us to maintain and fix the app quicker when there is an operating system update.
We have two subscription models. A standard Cabbie’s Mate A-Z app which includes the latest 4 A-Z maps and latest POI for £29.99 or a premium subscription for £39.99 which includes the standard app above with quarterly 4 POI updates (POI updates are available in January, April, July and October). Four POI updates are alone worth £20, but subscribers will have it discounted at £10. This is the only difference between our standard and the premium Cabbie’s Mate app.
Download will require 2 GB space and a Wi-Fi connection and will take between 15 - 45 minutes depending on connection speed.
Here’s what Cabbie’s Mate A-Z app provides:
Four Geographers’ A-Z maps. These are the Super Scale Central London map, Greater London map (street level Master Atlas), Extended Greater London Main Road map and the Great Britain Road Atlas. Greater and Central London maps have been customised by Geographers’ A-Z Map Co. Ltd. by colouring more main roads around the City of London to assist route planning ; exclusive to our software. Our app contains the latest available maps which are always displayed ‘north up’. Flicking between A-Z maps is a one touch operation.
Maps can be zoomed in and out – not only by using the ‘pinching’ action but also six levels using the + and - buttons added for even more user friendliness.
Our database contains over 38,827 up-to-date specially selected points of interest with full postal address and postcode. Our app will always have our very latest POI file when purchased. Most major hotels, embassies, theatres, stations and major landmarks are also shown on the Super Scale Central London map. Every quarterly we add around 500-600 new POI at the update. When new POI’s released we publish on our Facebook pagehttps://www.facebook.com/Cabbies-Mate-129101087197/
Searching couldn’t be easier, it is the fastest of any mapping application. Our customised predictive keyboard and alphabetical search system finds and displays a street, postcode or point of interest within ten seconds.
When connected to GPS, your current position is clearly displayed on the map. Having selected a destination, our A-Z app automatically draws a straight, as the crow flies, blue ‘cotton line’ from your position to the chosen destination to facilitate route planning. Additionally you can select an alternative start point on the map by pressing down on the map; the app will draw the ‘cotton line’ from there to your chosen destination. Although the app does not provide a navigation facility with voice guidance, your position is displayed as you move on screen while you drive.
The app includes centre GPS, zoom in, zoom out, map switch, day/night mode, route plotting, eraser, info and search buttons on the tool bar.
The app includes an on screen simple to understand instruction manual under the information button. We recommend that these instructions are understood and followed to obtain the best use of the unique functions available on this app.
Customers who previously purchased not subscription Android Cabbie’s Mate app can enjoy using their app they paid for without subscribing.
