Disabled parking made easier

by James Congdon

Navevo has launched what it claims is the first dedicated Blue Badge sat-nav. Dubbed BBNav, the device is designed primarily to aid disabled drivers and those caring for the disabled.

The product has been designed and built to help Blue badge holders to find parking spaces, and areas of interest. BBnav has all of the features you'd normally find within a standard sat-nav, plus other features in order to provide more detail for disabled drivers.

This includes on street disabled parking bays; disabled accessible car parks and local council blue badge concessions.These features include:

Blue Badge and Red Route on street parking bays
Disabled Car parks
Local Council Blue Badge Parking concessions
Over 60,000 Points of Interest (20,000 +Blue badge)
NAVTEQ street level mapping covering the UK and Republic of Ireland
Seven digit post code routing
Safety camera alerts.

The device is claimed to save time looking for disabled parking. The coded and numbered icons are displayed on the mapping while allowing users to search for a car park/parking bay with ease and be navigated directly to it."We have identified areas of the market where standard sat-navs fell short," said Nick Casari CEO at Navevo. "The product has taken us a year to develop in conjunction with Pie Guide."BBNav will be available from this October for £199.99. More details can be found at www.bbnav.co.uk.
