BwareArea

An offline GPS based POI alerter with overlay

How frustrating it is to have a offline navigation software to find out you can't be alerted approaching some point of interest / dangerous area ?

This application just solves this. You'll import a POI list and it'll start an always-on-top widget displaying the closest POI and alerting you if you don't follow the POI requirements. All the parameters are configurable; minimal distance to warn, allowed over-speed, whether to automatically start when your car's Bluetooth is connected, or to log your track.

Depending on your country's law, you can also limit to range alert (instead of exact position alert).

Packages
