Falcon - Navigation for Colleges and Festivals
With Falcon you can navigate to any point on a map, rather than only to street addresses. You can save your favorite places, share places with friends, and access any places that other people have created and shared publicly. Think of it as a Foursquare for navigation.
Use Falcon to:
• Find buildings on a college campus
• Navigate music festivals
• Save your parking spot
• Share a meetup spot with friends
• Save waypoints along a hiking trail
• Locate your favorite rides at a theme park
Falcon's navigation works like a compass, pointing directly to your destination, showing you its distance and direction. Falcon also lets you save your favorite places individually - or grouped together as "Maps" - to use again later, share with friends, or make publicly available. All Places and Maps that are made public are available and accessible to everyone on Falcon. Think of it as a people-powered database of all the hidden places and locations on the map!
The music festival season is starting, and you can use Falcon at any of these events to mark and share your your camping spot, your meetup spot, or any other point of interest.
Here at Falcon we're big fans of Coachella, but you can use Falcon at many other events like SXSW, Snowball, Beyond Wonderland, Ultra Music Festival, Stagecoach, and many more!
As an official partner of The Campus Companion, Falcon is teaming up to also help students find their way around their college campuses.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
