QuickMap UK Operating Modes
1. Area - Displays the 20 closest places to the center of the map without regard to heading. Position the map anywhere in the world and discover interesting places there.
2. Route - If you are moving with a speed greater than 15 MPH (24 KPH) the app can automatically switch to the Route mode. In Route mode place selection is based on a 45 degree section directly in front of you. The Route mode can be overridden if you want to keep the app in the Area mode. Auto mode is the default mode.
1. Place type filter enabling you to display only the place categories that interest you.
2. Each place has a details page with maps, directions, street view (if available) and Wikivoyage article text for certain POI places.
3. Continuous display of heading, speed, altitude.
4. Ability to bookmark a place of interest enabling you to quickly access that page later.
5. QuickMap UK has over 175,000 places resident in its database.
6. Many features of the app work while offline. For instance speed, heading and altitude use GPS information. Place geo code information is resident in the app so it can quickly display places as well as position them on offline cached maps. Street view and article text display require an on line connection.
7. Open Street Maps and Wikivoyage place information is from the early February 2016 database releases.
