The first AR-enabled mobile application by the National Parks Board (NParks), the Coast-to-Coast (C2C) mobile application provides users with a curated walking experience across a series of parks and park connectors. The mobile application enhances the user’s experience with interactive Augmented Reality (AR) elements, information on points of interest, alerts to special events and promotions as well as opportunities to earn attractive rewards.
Key features include:
1) Way-finding to and on the C2C Trail
Navigate to the C2C Trail and explore interesting sights and attractions around.
Locate and find your way to the nearest park amenities and F&B establishments.
2) Info-edutainment via 3D-animated Augmented Reality characters
Visit all 10 checkpoints along the C2C Trail and use the AR scanning mode to bring fun animal characters to life.
Watch as 3D-animated characters provide interesting information about the park and surrounding points of interest.
Learn about different native animals while at each checkpoint. Before you leave for the next checkpoint, make sure to complete quests to earn reward points.
3) Create and share your C2C experience
Take lots of photos and share them with others. Capture unique scenery, majestic heritage trees, interesting animals or cool cafes and restaurants you find along the way.
Share your experience with friends and family on other social media platforms.
4) Receive notifications on events and promotions
Stay updated about the fun-filled events and activities in our parks and enjoy them with your loved ones.
These events cater to all interests – gardening, nature, arts & heritage, sports & wellness and concerts & performances.

Look out for special activation events to join and possibly win attractive prizes.
5) Redeem attractive rewards

Fails at the first hurdle
Fill out the sign up form. Sorry, password doesn’t meet the criteria (no criteria were given). Now verify your email. Get verification email and click link. Email verified. Now back to the app to log in. Email is invalid (even though you just sent me the verification email just fine). Ok. Back to the sign in screen to try again with a new email. No verification email. Back to the app to click the “send new verification email” button. Sorry, have to wait 3 minutes. Wait 3 minutes. Click the button, email received. Click the link in the email. Sorry, verification token has expired. Back to the app. Resend verification email. Sorry, have to wait 3 minutes. GIVE UP.
Great job guys!
No directional pointer so you are left guessing exactly where you are facing on the route. Uses OneMap which is terrible but doesn’t even launch the app once installed. Route is unclear and required two phones and several apps to actually figure out where to go. The AR feature would not open and route would freeze and when restarted forget all details of what you have already covered resetting your progress. Worst app I’ve ever used and look forward to someone releasing the same route on Google maps.
Poor UI, Choosing obscure onemap
Not too sure what the developers what doing, clearly this was not well though out. The most popular map app is google map but they decided not to use it and use one map which is so limited. One map graphics and functionality is so poor! What a failure of a application for a government agency
