Lost satellite?

Home / News | posted on 24 09 2016

To overcome the issue of losing the GPS signal, Waze have introduced a battery powered beacon which can be mounted within tunnels. At less than $30 each, roughly 42 units are required per mile of tunnel. The system works without users needing any additional equipment, they just need to enable bluetooth on their device.

The devices are designed to provide more accurate arrival times, given that Waze can now "see inside" tunnels and provide a clearer idea of what the traffic is like with live traffic updates. Though the beacons have been developed by Waze and come with its branding, they're actually being opened up to other navigation services for free.
