by Nathan Oates

Universal App - Designed for both iPhone and iPad.

Price: $1.99

App Description

Put a mini map on your Pebble smart watch, and get turn-by-turn directions to a destination!

Please also install the watchface from the Pebble App Store.

  • Main mode: Map + current address at bottom
  • Hit up button: Turnbyturn arrow + instructions
  • Hit down button: Turnbyturn arrow + map
  • Hit middle button: Pops up a menu for zoom, grayscale and GPS controls. Keep hitting middle to rotate through and/or dismiss
  • Turnbyturn requires a destination to be set in the iOS app first!

Map types: Terrain, Satellite, Hybrid and Streetmap
Map depth: Black&White, Grayscale, or color

Walking and driving directions

Optional buzzes to alert you to upcoming turns

Address book integration

Control zoom level and map depth from the watch

Built-in battery saving techniques:
  • Phone GPS shuts off after a few minutes if not using the watchface.
  • Intelligent background updating to minimise CPU time in the background (iPhone 5 or later)

Please note:
Unless you are running in an LE-only mode (such as Pebble Round), you can only have one third-party iOS app talking to your Pebble at once.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
MapsGPS uses data to download maps and directions. A wifi or cellular connection to the internet is required.
Turn-by-turn directions is available in most countries, but not completely worldwide - please see this list to see if your country is supported:
