Magellan Compass 4.3 for the PlayBook Released

Magellan CompassThe PlayBook version 4.3 of Magellan Compass has been released to BlackBerry World.  It should be available to user within a couple of days.  This version includes:

  • Map data layout change.  As mentioned in the BB10 version release, the layout of map data has changed and requires the user to delete the app and re-install it to properly flush out any existing map data stored with the current app.  We know this is not great news for user’s with lots of map data, but the previous method made map access slow when user’s started to save around a GB of map data.  We hope this is the last time this needs to happen.
  • New aviation map provider.  Map types include Hybrid VFR, Sectional, WAC, Low IFR and High IFR.  Only US region mostly.
  • Navigation instructions more dynamic to maximize layout.
  • Navigation road sign placement fixed.
  • Navigation total time fixed.
  • New settings to allow user to choose action on route change.
  • New Spanish turn-by-turn voice (one free, one in-app purchase)
  • Initial layer selection fixed.
  • New ArcGIS topographic (terrain) map added.
  • Enhanced KML import.
