Over The Air Updates
CloudMade's Hybrid technology is distributed across the client and server and makes use of any available network connection to keep content up-to-date. The Hybrid system can make use of a WiFi connection, a Bluetooth tether to a smartphone or a USB connection to allow content to be syncronized.
Hybrid merges and disambiguates content accross different sources, letting users search from a single interface accross multiple data sources, receiving a single merged result. No duplicates.
Navigation experiences built on top of CloudMade's On-Dash platform can quickly and simply add new content sources and remove current sources without major changes to device software.
The On-Dash platform puts the PND at the center of a connected ecosystem. Mapsafe makes it fast to add features like cloud-based synchronization and backup of routes, favorite places and user perferences. Web portals, smartphones applications and other hardware are now all part of a connected navigation experience.
