    Alia Nurullina
  • You are very advanced. I have a variety of different devices and I actively watch over what appears in the West. So you have the best solution at the moment, with everything we need and a user-friendly interface.

    Valery Khristianov
  • This is the most reliable navigator with the most detailed maps. After using for 30 minutes I became convinced that it is simply irreplaceable in the city. Guys, buy Oriense !!! Good incentive to integrate into society. Good luck to the developers!

    Max Belsky
  • Everything works really like in the podcasts, I became convinced in practice. GPS running fast. I tried to add my geo-point - fine, returned exactly to the same place. Every day OrNavi only pleases.

    Igor Volkov
  • The navigator guides you through a route at the same time exploring the surrounding objects. Now you do not have to come to each door and ask what is there :) Enough to enable auto-notifications and to walk on areas of interest and find lot of useful information.

    Oleg
  • First of all I want to thank you for creating the necessary devices for the blind.
    Navigator catches satellites very good, very well designed navigation instructions, and a big plus is that OrNavi works with bluetooth devices and external cameras that extends the capabilities.

    Alexander
  • Navigator helps to quickly learn new routes. I'm a lot better represent my city now.
    Recently I was in Ufa, and in an unfamiliar city had to move from one station to another.
    With the "map exploration" mode i found the necessary stop
    and using the transport mode I reached the target.
