The moment you hear about traveling to an unknown place, the first thought in your mind will be Google Maps. Because apparently, the most widely known app for navigation is Google Maps that has more than 1 billion users all over the world. We all trust Google Maps so much that we just go with it without knowing the places, and it serves the purpose almost every single time.
But what if I tell you that there is an app that is claiming to be the best app you will ever use when it comes to navigating? This new navigation app, Nexit is claimed to be more accurate than any of the apps you have used in the past. Let’s discuss this.
NEXIT – Yeah. This is the name of the new navigation app, which is going to make your traveling experiences more amazing. The company has launched an all-in-one road trip app that also claims to provide drivers with unmatched navigation & search features.
In mid-Oct 2019, Nexit launched as the next generation in mobile mapping followed by a new version update dated 29th Nov 2019. Nexit also helps drivers customize the road trip by finding precisely what and when they need, on the road they are traveling on.
The features of Nexit which make it special are quite the way users are expecting from a while, and they are as below:
- Road trips the way you always wanted.
- All navigation apps tell you where to drive. Only Nexit tells you where to stop.
- The smartest map you’ll ever use.
- Filter your search as much as you want.
- Whether you’re a driver or passenger, Nexit makes it easy to find the best place to shop for what you want, when you want it.
Official Statements from Nexit
Nexit founder and Chairman Dr. Vincent Ebuh said – “We’re thrilled to bring this game-changing app to market just as millions of Americans are preparing to hit the roads for holiday travel.” “We know that there will be significant demand from users who are often frustrated by the limits of other mapping apps. We’re proud to make road trips easier and more enjoyable with Nexit.”
Nexit President and CEO Randy Carpenter said – “All existing navigation apps tell you where to drive. Only Nexit tells you where to stop.” “We’ve all been there, you’re on a road trip and settle for food you don’t want only to find out your favorite chain was two exits away, or you’ve filled up on gas only to find it cheaper at the next station. Nexit is the highway co-pilot you’ve always wanted.”
What Nexit Offers
Nexit comes up with so many customizations that users can search for any combination of travel destinations and amenities. They can also search for multiple preferences, such as a hotel with a pool or a restaurant with dine-in options. The best I could connect with is, the users can plan the ideal stops before their trip. They can also search by business name or type of stop and even filter by price, distance and more.
Nexit also claims to be a road-trip app that predicts where you’re going and shows you exit with businesses and amenities that match your needs.
One feature I’m eager to experience is that the users can browse exits in map-view to see what’s coming up over the next 50 miles. You can also search for what you may need next on your trip, and that can be from a classic diner, a hotel with an indoor pool to the gas station, or all three at the same exit. I mean this is something I never expected, from a navigation app at least.
Compatibility And Covered Region
For now, Nexit covers the entire United States of America, and the features it provides, are free for all the users. As of now, the app is available for iOS operating systems and will be coming soon to Android OS as well. If you want to learn more about Nexit, visit www.nexit.app.
The Difference Between Google Maps and Nexit
Though Google Maps is the most used and trusted navigation app, it doesn’t always give what we want, and sometimes it crashes in between since it is a heavy application. Wherein Nexit promises to be the “only all-in-one app for highway travelers” by helping the drivers finding precisely what they want, when they need it, on the road they are traveling. It lets you customize the search by selecting multiple criteria at once, which comes very handy when you’re looking for a lot of things to cover in one go. Nexit gives you a lot of features that other navigation apps just don’t. The features provided by Nexit can be categorized as the future of how the navigation apps should help the users. As mentioned above by CEO Carpenter – “All existing navigation apps tell you where to drive. Only Nexit tells you where to stop.”
With 248 ratings, the app has got 2.6 stars out of 5 which isn’t a good sign to go for it. However, with the idea of “what the road trippers want” while building the app, I believe it’s too soon to decide what the application is worth. I personally loved some of the features that I didn’t find in other navigation apps, and yeah, they were necessary to be in a navigation app.
