Via Directions

April 7, 2009

Via Directions$0.00 from Robert Stainsby Via Directions

It’s great how your iPhone can give you directions from A to B. But what if you want to go via C? That’s where Via Directions can help.

Use Via Directions to specify an intermediate stop for your trip. Or name a street to use to avoid a bottleneck. The results are generated by Google and displayed in the Maps application, just like a standard directions search.

THE CATCH

Since early 2009, the Maps app may display an extra leg, back to your starting point, when you ask for directions using Via Directions (or multi-stop directions generated from Google Maps). This also blows out the estimated distance. How annoying!

THE GOOD NEWS

Until this issue is resolved, Via Directions is FREE. So download it now and you’ll own it when it becomes a paid app again.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: Why is there no screenshot here showing the results of a search?
A: Via Directions passes your search to the built-in Maps app for display. The results work exactly the same as a standard Maps search – only the route is different.

Q: How do I enter locations into Via Directions?
A: Type them in, select addresses from your Contacts, or select “Current Location”.

Q: Why do I see a “server error” or “address could not be found” message instead of a map?
A: It sounds like one of your stops could not be found. Relaunch Via Directions and try describing your search a slightly different way. If you find an address that works in Maps but not in Via Directions, please contact me with details so I can try to fix the problem.

Q: Can Via Directions use my bookmarks from the Maps app?
A: No, the iPhone provides no way to do this as far as I can see.

We are very proud and happy to receive good reviews from our customers:

★★★★★ by kurtonic
“Awsome!!! The best speed app on iphone”

★★★★★ by Darekakuta
“Just what I needed. My ’58 chev’s speedo doesn’t work. This did the trick.”

★★★★★ by Rawd
“Great My 79 Firebird speedo only goes to 140 kmh. ;). This worked perfectly.”

★★★★★
“Within 1 mile per hour +/- Great Job!”

by Mirko9000
“Must have! Worth the money, works as advertised.”

SpeedBox was one of the very early Speedometer-Apps for the iPhone. Take advantage of our great experience and refined algorithms that can get a much greater accuracy from the iPhone then a lot of other programs. We regularly update our application to make it even more accurate and usable.

MONEY BACK GUARANTEE! We are so convinced that you like our application, we offer you a money back guarantee. Really don’t like the App? Contact us on the “SpeedBox Support” page (see below) and we will refund your payment with PayPal!

Please note that due to the iPhone’s limited GPS reception quality the application works best at speeds from 10-20 km/h upwards. The “GPS strength” indicator should at least show 3 yellow bars.
Modern cars often have windscreen which can lower the GPS reception quality. Please allow the application up to a minute to find enough satellites to work correctly.

Users have already used our application to verify the accuracy of their car’s speedometer or they tried measuring the speed they achieved while skiing. Can you come up with more ideas? How about measuring the speed of the airplane you travel with?

Please note that the compass only works when you are moving. The iPhone does not have a built in compass, so it can’t display the direction when you just turn the iPhone around.

FEEDBACK: If you’ve got any wishes or suggestions for new features, please let us know with the contact form on this application’s website (see link below). We will be more then happy to integrate features our users want.
We are already working on the next update!
