Walk & Ride Berlin features:

Offline routing with highly detailed maps and routing onboard: no online connection neccessary, no data roaming cost, no hassle.

A highly detailed map always at hand: with all Lines and 779 stations of Suburban trains, Subways and Tramway. For iPod touch and iPhone.

Walk & Ride packs a punch with its unique details and extensive information that many other maps don’t show. The map for all of Berlin is as comprehensive as it is accurate, showing the entire area, not just the city center:

* buildings of Berlin with footprints and 409.196 precise housenumbers
* index of 16.008 km streets and pathes with crossings and shortcuts
* 3.838 POIs (points of interest) with addresses and much additional information
* free scale of up to 1:500 – perfect for pedestrians

Additional features:

* works completely offline – no 3G connection necessary
* determine location with and without GPS (not available on iPod touch)
* precise calculation of routing options for pedestrians, Suburban trains, Subways, Tramway and Car (multimodal routing) – this version doesn’t yet have bus lines
* vector-based – uses less storage
* intelligent address input and auto-completion
* find postal address to any position (“reverse geocoding”)
* save personal favorites
* POI-slider to show/hide more/less points of interest

= Notes =

== Startup at initial load ==
After its initial installation and sync to the device, map data, streets and POI datasets need to be decompressed and installed. Depending on the physical size of the city and the resulting dataset, this may take some seconds. Subsequently, loading is much faster.

== Street and POI listings ==
The street list with crossings, precisely geocoded point addresses and POIs is the core element within Walk & Ride. If routing or positioning is initiated, these lists need to be decompressed and initialized first.

== Cartography ==
“Cartography never has a final version” – cartographers say. The map base data of Walk & Ride is made from three distinct sources. Street data is licensed from Navteq, cadastral data for Germany is sourced from the federal mapping organization BKG (Bundesamt für Kartografie und Geodäsie) and AdV (Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Vermessungsverwaltungen der Länder der Bundesrepublik Deutschland). The third source are United Maps’ completions and enhancements to POIs and public transport lines and stations. As federal and cadastral data are updated once per year, it may happen that houses on the map that already have been rebuilt – probably to just another visible footprint.

As Walk & Ride is updated whenever there are signicficant changes to one of the sources, small differences may be taken into account. By the way: this isn’t different from well-known online mapping services.

If you feel like submitting a change request, please send mail to and add a descriptive screenshot. We’ll take it on the list and reflect changes with an upcoming release.

== Routing ==
This version covers railbound public transport with suburban trains, subway and tram. There are no bus lines and stations yet. It might happen that within in cities heavily relying on busses for public transport, routing results are suboptimal.

If a routing request is initiated, a navigable graph is constructed from the street list. The routing algorithm crawls along this utterly complex network to detect the optimized path to the destination selected. This is repeated for pedestrian, public transport and car – as why technically Walk & Ride realizes multimodal routing.

On long distance routings, the calculation may take some seconds as the iPod touch or iPhone are still slower than dedicated servers at the backend of online routing services.
