We’ve just rolled out a few improvements, new features and bug-fixes…
SatNav integration for smart-phones and tablets is the main new feature, but there have been other improvements as well – see below for details.
For all platforms:
- Fixed a long standing bug where buttons disappeared from info bubbles after editing a location.
- Changes to the wording on the navigation button in the info bubble (now reads ‘Show Route’ to show the route on the map, then ‘Directions’ to show the text directions.
- Clicking the ‘share’ icon in an info bubble when in Street View now shares the Street View rather than the map view of that parking location.
- When viewing a Street View, the browser location bar will display an address which will link directly to that Street View – so you can share the exact view you are looking at simply by copying the address bar contents.
For desktop PC / Mac:
- Info bubbles now contain a QR code link that will display a QR code for that parking location. Scanning the code with a smart-phone or tablet will give you the option of opening your SatNav application pre-loaded with that parking location as the destination.
For smart-phone and tablet:
- Info bubbles now contain a QR code link that will display a QR code for that parking location. Scanning the code with another smart-phone or tablet will give you the option of opening your SatNav application pre-loaded with that parking location as the destination. Alternatively, tapping the QR code will also attempt to open the SatNav in the same way.
- A button has been added to the top of the route directions view that will attempt to open the SatNav app on your device with the parking location pre-loaded as the destination.
The Web-API has been updated to include the new Street View linking functionality as well – so if you run a review site or a business with disabled / handicap parking nearby, feel free to link to the BlueBadgeParking.com Street View of the location to give your visitors an alternative view of the parking available.
