Navigator 7 comes with Android Auto connectivity - for free

MapFactor Navigator is one of the first offline GPS navigation apps for Android Auto. And what is more it is free.

Description

In August 2020 Google decided to expand Android Auto’s app ecosystem nto new categories, including navigation. MapFactor was chosen as one of the few early access partners and now, after months of close cooperation with Google, we can introduce Navigator 7 – fully compatible with Android Auto.

Our customers will be pleased that, unlike by some other navigation apps, this function will be available at no extra charge in all Navigator 7 versions – from Navigator FREE to professional Navigator PRO.

(Release of Navigator PRO with Android Auto will follow very soon.)

It is great that the drivers will be now able to use MapFactor Navigator on their in-build car displays with Android Auto connectivity. Because they will not need to check their smartphone displays, driving will be safer and more comfortable. Thanks to the offline map data Navigator on Android Auto will provide directions also without an internet connection.
