TORONTO, Aug. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Following its successful launch in North America, Live Roads is announcing its European launch today on the Google Play Store.

The highly-acclaimed app takes GPS to the next level by providing users with access to HD maps and lane-level navigation, while creating an immersive and accurate navigation experience.

For this release, Live Roads now includes European HD maps and, by popular demand from its tens of thousands of loyal users, walking and bicycling directions. By featuring real 3D cars, bikes, avatars, and HD maps, the app empowers users with a personalized and fun navigation experience far exceeding any other contemporary navigation app. 

Key features of the new release include:

  • 3D Characters & Avatars – Choose from a free list of 3D cars, bicycles, and personal avatars to fully express your digital self. The 3D characters are fully animated to better mimic your actual movements in the real world.
  • Live Traffic Reports – All users have access to live traffic information at a glance. Quickly see the status of all roads in the vicinity.
  • Picture-In-Picture (PIP) Maps – Users can see both HD and SD Maps at the same time for a higher level of detail and accuracy while navigating.
  • Sharing Live Location with Friends – Users can share their exact location and estimated time of arrival with other approved users as well as be able to report accidents, construction and other incidents in real-time.

“Live Roads allows for an accurate and intimate experience when navigating in the real world,” said Paul Konieczny, Founder and CEO of Live Roads. “By giving users the option to choose and personalize their 3D digital self, Live Roads is gamifying the navigation experience and providing users with a fun and accurate way to get from A to B.”

Live Roads will be available on iOS later this summer and will be adding additional features, including lane-level traffic, which will provide users with live traffic updates surrounding them lane by lane and which route is best to take in real time.
