Navigate the World Around You and that Latest Best Seller with One Consistent Physical Experience!
Today people everywhere consume content while traveling, but for someone who is blind or visually impaired physical keys plus a consistent user experience is so much more important while navigating outside with one hand already occupied by a cane or dog guide.

With the press of the Online button you can toggle between the always-on Orientation Guidance Mode and Offline or Online Book Reading:

  • Take a long bus ride and read books or listen to podcasts.
  • Need to check where you are?  Simply toggle to the orientation mode and press the “Where Am I” button.
  • With the press of that one button, Trek will tell you:
    • Your current nearest address
    • Cardinal direction you are traveling
    • Description of the next intersection. (Whether it is a 3-way or 4-way intersection, which streets go which direction, and approximate distance)
  • Next instruction if you are following a route
  • Want to mark that specific intersection to return to on a future trip?  Simply drop a voice tagged landmark and you can receive turn by turn directions to that exact point.
  • Want to navigate to a specific address?  Use Trek’s familiar telephone keypad to quickly type the address.
  • If you don’t need to get off the bus, simply press the toggle button again and you will be back in your book or podcast exactly where you left off.

Trek provides specific pedestrian or vehicle instructions:

  • Pedestrian directions ensure the user is not guided on major highways
  • Vehicle instructions reduces the amount of details provided to the user so they can more easily direct a sighted driver
