Technologies

GPS

The backbone of location technologies. GPS support is built in to work seamlessly in the foreground and background, providing battery saving and accuracy options for all your outdoor location needs.

Bluetooth Beacon

Supporting all the major Bluetooth beacon standards: iBeacon, AltBeacon and Eddystone UID. Working seamlessly in the foreground and background to support micro locations indoors and out.

Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi is fast becoming ubiquitous and can therefore be used as an accurate alternative to GPS positioning. Want to pinpoint a location on the London Underground where there's no GPS? Use Wi-Fi instead.

Extensively tested and deployed to over 2,200 different combinations of hardware and iOS/Android version
