New video: Start navigation from your own app


Using Intents it is very easy to start MapTrip navigation from your own app. The Android operating system provides a simple tool to allow apps to communicate with each other. When your app sends an intent to MapTrip, the navigation starts and the route guidance begins.

Welcome to infoware, 

Intents are a very simple way for one app to call another on the same device. Simply put, Intents are URLs that, similar to web pages, contain the recipient and a function to be performed by the recipient.

For example like this
maptrip://navigate?latitude=50.738912&longitude=7.106772

MapTrip can do so much more than just guide you to a destination. Therefore, the Intent interface also has numerous functions that go beyond a simple transfer of coordinates.

In the video we explain a demo application that we provide in our GitHub account. It allows developers to easily see the possibilities of the Intent interface of our navigation app. If you need a deeper integration of navigation in your own app, you can use the MapTrip API. This creates a feedback channel from the navigation system into your own app, so that information such as the current calculated arrival time (ETA) can be retrieved. 

I am looking forward to your comments and discussions.
 
Best regards,
