Now you can use your Android phone for not only GPS tracking and location-based reminders, but also sharing POIs, travel routes, photos and coordinates. inViu routes, a free Android app download available from Google Play is the only one of its kind currently on the market.

What else you can do
So what’s the fun factor? Popular activities such as geocaching are made simpler using one device: your phone. Save your POIs with exact GPS coordinates, even if you’re hiking in the middle of nowhere. Record your favorite travel routes. Take a picture and email the exact location using a map image or GPX or KML file through any other app on your phone including social media. Send a geo-note via text or voice to a friend so they get your message near the location as they travel.
More than just a GPS
As a GPS, the inViu app helps you find locations on OpenStreetMap. Using the geofence feature, you can set voice or text notifications to signal travel past a certain point. If you take a photo, embedded GPS coordinates will document the exact spot, which info can be saved or shared.

Families can use inViu to view routes for their children, seniors or even pets.
