Singapore’s home-grown pioneer in real-time traffic and connected navigation, Quantum Inventions, has brought its award-winning navigation experience to iOS by launching Galactio SG GPS Navigation and Traffic. Available on the Google Play store since February 2014, the android version of Galactio has been well received by users, garnering an average rating of 4.0.
Galactio, the first of its kind app, fully integrates real-time information such as traffic incidents, traffic camera images, parking rates and availability and fuel prices. To provide further convenience, the app also allows offline navigation. “Galactio empowers drivers with a hyper-local experience by integrating innovative features in a simple, convenient and customizable system,” said Mohit Sindhwani, Head of Innovation at Quantum Inventions.
Mohit further added, “We noticed that drivers juggled with multiple applications for their commuting needs. Hence, we included Driver Assistance features such as speed limit advice, bus lane notifications, ERP toll calculation and red light and speed camera warnings to offer a seamless, one-stop solution to users. For example, drivers are alerted about traffic incidents affecting their route and offered detour advisory. In addition, the built in parking availability feature automatically guides the users to carparks as they near the destination. Galactio has been designed to improve driver productivity and improve user experience.”
Integrated with QI’s mapSYNQ portal, the app also includes personalization features that allow users to share their current location, drive information, real-time position and estimated time of arrival with their friends via a wide array of social media channels as well as other traditional media such as SMS and email.
Commenting on the launch of the app, Saurav Bhattacharyya, CEO of Quantum Inventions remarked, “Extending the reach of Galactio to both Android and iOS is a significant milestone in our journey towards creating intelligent transportation systems. Galactio is the actualization of our vision to enhance user experience and enable platforms that help to create smart cities.”
The Android app is also available in other countries such as Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines and Indonesia, and would be followed with the iOS version in the coming months. Galactio SG is available on Apple’s app store and Google Play and can be accessed at the following links:
