STQRY's turn-by-turn direction feature enhances user navigation within your app, guiding them seamlessly from stop to stop and providing timely notifications upon arrival. With In-App Navigation powered by Mapbox, users can enjoy integrated wayfinding directly within your app, eliminating the need to switch between multiple applications.


Benefits:

  • Seamless Integration: In-App Navigation seamlessly integrates within your STQRY app, providing users with a familiar and intuitive navigation experience.
  • Real-Time Guidance: Users receive turn-by-turn directions and real-time location updates, ensuring they stay on track throughout their journey.
  • Automatic Rerouting: The navigation system automatically adjusts routes and provides alternative directions in case of wrong turns or unexpected obstacles.

In-App Navigation using Mapbox is an additional feature for the STQRY app. To enable this functionality, you'll need to register for a Mapbox account and pay an additional fee to STQRY.

Activation Process:

Step 1: Create A Single Location Map on the STQRY Builder

  • Log in to the STQRY builder and navigate to the desired screen or create a new one.
  • Add a single location section with the destination's coordinates or street address.
  • Repeat this step to other screens (stops) on your tour.

Watch our short tutorial video below to learn about the steps to create a single location map on an available screen.



Tips: 

  • If you want users to ride and listen continuously, we recommend adding the audio component for the stop, along with any additional content you want them to enjoy.
  • For tour maps, you can use the polyline editing tools to plot a route for users to see the whole traveling area. 

Step 2: Estimate Mapbox Costs and Sign Up for Mapbox Account


Step 3: Create a New Token

  • Log in to your Mapbox account, navigate to Access Tokens, and click on Create a Token to create a new token. 
  • Share the generated Key Token with STQRY for integration.

Watch our short tutorial video below to learn about the steps to create a token.



Step 4: Backend Integration and App Submission

  • Once the Key Token is provided, STQRY will handle the backend integration and rebuild the app.
  • The updated app will be submitted to Google Play and Apple Store for approval. Please refer to our help article here to learn about our app update process.

User Experience:

When users are ready to depart, they can:

  • Select the button "Next" at the bottom right of every stop to proceed to the next destination within the app.
  • Click on the location screen item to access directions.
  • Depart, and the navigation system will guide them seamlessly inside the app.

Watch our demo video below to learn about how the feature works in the app.
