Navmii, the smart navigation and traffic app for drivers, announces on Wednesday the launch of its equity crowdfunding campaign on Crowdcube. Investors can help fund future product development to make Navmii the “ultimate, intuitive driving assistant.” The company aims to raise at least £1M, valuing the business at £26 million.
Navmii’s free mobile navigation app currently combines voice-guided navigation, live traffic information, local search and safe driving rating to create a community of smart, engaged and active drivers. The app is available for iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Blackberry and already has more than 26 million downloads and is available across 85 countries. The company is powered by its own proprietary mapping data and real-time community updates, combined with OpenStreetMaps to create free and accurate driving advice.
The new Navmii will be able to scan the driver’s surrounding road conditions using the camera in their phone and will proactively warn the driver of oncoming traffic, road signs, hazards and safety cameras before the driver could possibly see them for themselves. Regardless of the make, model or ownership of the car, Navmii will become a drivers own proactive, mobile personal driving assistant, recording journey statistics and flagging potential threats to the timing of journeys.
Capital raised from the campaign will be used to invest in future product developments for Navmii, including enhancements to voice-based social reporting and the application of artificial intelligence to deliver more accurate and intuitive driving experience.
“The Navmii community has invested so much support and dedication in making the product the best smart navigation app. This Crowdcube campaign enables our community to own a share in our journey by investing in our future product development. The next step is a truly exciting one – we are determined to make Navmii the ultimate driving assistant and look forward to our community joining us on this path.”
Navmii’s funding round on Crowdcube is set to close at the beginning of October.
