Telmap launches M8 in the UK & Spain Available for FREE on iPhone and Android devices

October 2012

The last few months have been extremely busy here at Telmap, and now we are pleased to announce the launch of M8 – Your Local Mate, a brand new free app available in the UK and Spain. This app is bringing Telmap to the forefront of the consumer LBS market.  Our new and vastly improved application is easily accessible for Free to everyone with iPhone or Android devices in the UK and Spain.

M8 is an all-in-one mobile application that combines next generation navigation technology, traffic updates, speed cam warnings, local content and social media. Those of you in the UK and Spain that are already using Telmap can expect our benchmark first-class turn-by-turn in-car navigation, voice-guided instructions, and postcode and address search that is specially tailored for your country.

So what’s new? M8 has been developed with a number of new features including 3D maps and POIs, shortcuts to home and work addresses for easy commuting, striking vector-rendered graphics, sleek animations, clearer illustrations of next turn and improved lane detection.

In conjunction with developing and pioneering these new exciting features we have also been steadfast in our commitment to offering our users ultra-local content. For UK users, this means you will still be able to navigate alongside local brands such as Barclays Cycle Hire and Ordnance Survey, to name a few. Likewise, our Spain users will benefit from such local content as Páginas Amarillas, Spain’s leading directory search and El Tenedor, a premier Spanish restaurant guide that provides reviews, ratings and even table reservations.  But we never rest on our laurels so make sure to watch this space as we continue to expand the list to provide you with an uncontested on-the-go experience.

M8 also continues to provide free access to nearby restaurants, pubs and plenty of activities through the seamless integration of TripAdvisor, Lonely Planet and now Yelp. These are packed with useful information such as addresses, phone numbers, opening hours, photos, reviews and more. This makes it straightforward to make informed decisions on where to go while on-the-go.

Finally, for all you social butterflies out there, you can still easily keep in touch with your friends and family on the go. M8 is fully integrated with Facebook and Twitter, all from within the app.

All of these features mentioned are intuitively accessible from a unique in-app home screen that will streamline your on-the-go experience. 

Get M8 now and your on-the-go experience will never be the same!
