The Seeing Eye GPS™ Screens, from left to right, Location Screen, Point of Interest Screen, Route Screen

The Seeing Eye, the pioneer in guide dogs, and Sendero Group, the pioneer in accessible GPS, have teamed up to create The Seeing Eye GPS™. Almost 20 years of user feedback and feature requests are behind the design of all Sendero GPS products. The accessible features in The Seeing Eye GPS™ are only the beginning of what is yet to come as users help in evolving this first fully accessible GPS product for the iPhone. The Seeing Eye GPS™ is a fully accessible turn-by-turn GPS iPhone app, available in the U.S. and Canada, with all the normal navigation features plus features unique to blind users.

Unique to The Seeing Eye GPS™

  • Instead of multiple layers of menus, the three important navigation elements are on the lower portion of every screen: Route, POIs and Location.
  • At intersections, the street name and your direction of travel are announced.
  • Intersections are described (e.g. four-way) with the clock face orientation of the streets.
  • There are two choices for POI data (Foursquare and TomTom).
  • Directions are configured appropriately for Pedestrian and Vehicle routes, including heads-up announcements for approaching turns, turn now, continue straight and upcoming turns.
  • If one wanders off the route, it's automatically recalculated and updated turn information is announced.
  • Point your phone in a given direction to hear what is nearby with the LookAround Wand.
  • Nearby Points of interest and intersections are automatically announced.
