Cabbie’s Mate Android A-Z AppFollowing on from the amazing success of the Cabbie’s Mate Navigation System, developed for and used daily by thousands of the world famed Licensed London Taxi Drivers, we at Knowledge Master UK Ltd have produced a universal, easy to operate ‘map app’ compatible with android phones and tablets, which embraces the comprehensive A-Z mapping and software used by the cab trade and those people on ‘The Knowledge’ training to become cab drivers.

There is no other map app which provides the comprehensive information and has such ease of use as ours.
Download will require 1.5 GB space and a Wi-Fi connection and will take between 15 - 45 minutes depending on connection speed.
Here’s what it provides:
Four Geographers’ A-Z maps. These are the Super Scale Central London map, Greater London map (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 32,600 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.
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.
Should you prefer to have Geographers’ A-Z mapping combined with a navigation system please visit our website www.navigationmaster.com to see information about our amazing software on our current 7” Cabbie’s Mate 3G, Wi-Fi, Phone, GPS satellite navigation units. Our 7” Cabbie’s Mate does not require sim card for GPS satellite connection. The A-Z application on our 7” device contains additional features such as speed and traffic light camera warnings, and voice guidance with street names. Switching between A-Z maps and navigation is instant at the touch of a button. Unique to our software, destinations inserted in A-Z maps automatically generate route calculation and guidance in Navigation.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
