MapmyIndia announced today that the free Mappls app will get a new feature called Junction View that will make driving safer. MapmyIndia previously launched Maps RealView and 360-degree street view features.

According to the company, more than 80% of the drivers polled during the development of MapmyIndia Mappls’ “junction view” feature, the function is intended to help people navigate confidently while approaching flyovers, junctions, and forks.
A unique feature that Indian users do not receive from foreign default maps apps is the tens of thousands of junction views that can be found in the Mappls app, with ever-expanding coverage, across thousands of cities and highways, including major cities like Delhi, Noida, Gurgaon, Kolkata, Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Ludhiana, Lucknow, etc.

- Junction View gives you a 3D view of flyovers, complicated intersections, and road forks that are coming up.
- This function can help prevent car pileups in foggy situations, especially where traffic flows in a chain, as drivers will be warned about the impending fork, intersection, or obstacle in real-time.
- The highlighted mark while travelling displays the exit or entry of the flyover in the 3D photo-realistic format. If accessible, the junction view displays a preview of the following junction.
- By tapping the junction view arrow during navigation, one can close the shown intersection.

Driving in a new place might be stressful when making a quick decision near a flyover, and multiple turn alternatives might be confusing and cause accidents. With MapmyIndia, drivers won’t miss the next exit, the company says.
Commenting on the feature, Rohan Verma, CEO & Executive Director, MapmyIndia, said:
Being the pioneer in the industry since 1995, we constantly strive to improve people’s experiences through world-class technology. Nowadays, maps have become an intrinsic part of every commuter’s life calling for constant innovation to make road journeys safe. We noticed the hindrances and accidents caused by the confusion while taking the right path or turning at the junctions and forks.
Noticing the need, our team worked diligently to come up with this feature that will help reduce travel time, costs, hassle, and road accidents, which is critical in the Indian context. We appeal to all to use the free, swadeshi Mappls app which offers such advanced safety and smart navigation features and encourage others in their social and professional networks as well as organizations to download and use the free Mappls app.
