This update brings a list of improvements to the map and speech interface and makes space for upcoming QR code/mobile release and voice capture improvements. We have replaced the old assistant interface with an improved one, and made several changes to the wayfinding system.
Verbal directions are now displayed on screen along with the route, in order to make it easier for people who prefer readable directions over maps.
For first-time users, clear directions and suggestions are given for how to use the system.
We have created permanent, color-coded wayshowing routes that display routes to chosen destinations. This allows visitors to quickly identify the way to common destinations without having to use voice or mobile directions.
