“London Tube 10" is a superb geographically based map and route planner for the London Underground, Overground, Docklands Light Railway (DLR), Croydon Tramlink and London Airport Express services. This is one in a worldwide series of Zuti maps from Visual IT who have been producing public transportation maps for mobile devices for many years.
The map is hand drawn by Visual IT and provides a unique geographically based view of the city centre with many places of interest drawn directly on the background so you can easily get your bearings when traveling in and around the city. Tap on the map for location information, use the inbuilt search feature or choose from a list of locations. Places of interest, museums, hotels, parks, restaurant, shops, hospitals, streets, etc, are also included. The route planner will automatically suggest the nearest station to any place of interest you select.
Another unique feature of this product is our “Minute Map” option which allows you to see the travel times from a start point to all other locations on the map. This can be very useful and is not available in any other product on the market.
The map and routing does not require an internet connection and you will not be charged data connection fees. This also means the application runs successfully underground and on an iPod Touch.
Does not require an internet connection and will always be available to display a clear and detailed view of the city transport systems, plus list and animate the optimum route for your journey. Provides the fastest route calculations of any mobile routing application (virtually instantaneous) using actual published journey times with the ability to select the quickest route or the route with the least changes.
Comprehensive details of your planned route are provided, including changes, directions of travel, number of stops, predicted journey times, etc. Uniquely this application gives you “direction”, “towards” and “service frequency” information for each segment of the journey (not available on any other offline journey planner) for example “At Kings Cross change to the Hammersmith and City line (Eastbound) towards Barking for 3 stops. Service runs every 7 minutes” which is essential when finding the correct platform and connection. Also given are alternatives for each segment of the journey.
Contains simple information on every Tube station indicating what carriage to use for the most efficient exit or transfer. Just tap on a Tube station and scroll down to see the exit information for each platform.
When an internet connection is available, optional "Live Information" on the current state of the transport services can be viewed (and automatically saved for future reference) allowing you to plan your journeys in advance and avoid any potential delays. Unique to this application is the ability to turn off services that are out of action and automatically calculate an alternative route.
