It uses a dedicated Triposo app and vibrates to indicate the direction you need to take. Say goodbye to looking into your phone all the time, and navigate the most alien places just like a local.
The app takes commands from the map on the device Triposo Travel belt is connected to. The app is intelligent enough to know exactly where you are standing and where you are headed to.
