What’s New

Version 1.4

* Turn-by-turn navigation has been added. This allows you to get a route with step-by-step instructions between two points.
This function requires an internet connection to opperate.
* When saving a location it's now possible to mark the new point as a checkpoint or the locked point.
* The results of the Where Am I function can now be used like any other point.
* There's now a send mail action if a point has an email tag.
* In the point details screen, if a tag's value is a url that url can be opened in Safari.
* Some form fields have been cleaned up so the label and value are spoken as a single element.
* Some bugs, especially having to do with routes, have been fixed.
