A company has designed an app to help Apple iPhone users find their way around any location in Europe.
Skobbler has launched the ForeverMap 2.0 application that aims to provide users with maps of any place on the continent.
Mobile phone owners can download maps of villages, towns or cities and utilise the route finder functions to help them while driving.
Developers have suggested that the sat nav application stands out from the crowd of other similar apps, as it does not require a 3G signal for it to be utilised.
Users download the areas they want and these are automatically made available offline, which is particularly beneficial when travelling in remote areas with low 3G coverage.
Co-founder of Skobber Philipp Kandal believes the application, which uses OpenStreetMap technology, has been tailored to suit the needs of travellers.
"A crucial part in developing ForeverMap 2.0 has been listening and reacting to customer feedback," he remarked.
According to Mr Kandal, the new app is twice as fast at discovering routes as previous versions and loading has been made up to 70 per cent more efficient.
The app has also been designed to cater for people trekking around Europe on foot.
A link to Wikipedia information regarding landmarks in some of the continent's most popular tourist spots may prove popular with those taking city breaks.
"We have completely changed the structure of ForeverMap 2.0 and have done so in just a few weeks," Mr Kandal added.
"The speed in which we make updates is a testament to our commitment to creating the best mapping solution possible."
Mobile phone users in Australia are also set to benefit from a new iPhone app released by a prominent satellite navigation brand, Smartoffice.com reports.
Garmin is involved in the production of the Whereis app, which will allow Telstra customers to use the function to navigate around the country.
According to Telstra-owned Sensis, 69 per cent of mobile phone owners use such technology when visiting a new place for the first time.
