Navigation Exchange Service (NavXC) enables you to build a network of online contacts who’s positions are continuously tracked and exchanged between each client. This allows the user to track the movements and whereabouts of their contacts at all times – in real time and in relation to their own movements.
Other options include the ability to define ‘Locations’ and share them with other users on your contacts list. These shared locations can be used for example to ‘Map Bookmark’ a new bar you’ve just found enabling you to both share this new discovery with others and also to keep a note of its location for the future.
