Navigate with Your Samsung Gear 2 Using DMA Navi Watch

Navigate with Your Samsung Gear 2 Using DMA Navi Watch

Whether you’re travelling to a new destination or exploring some previously unvisited corner of your own city, you’re bound to get lost without navigation assistance. Google Maps has done wonders in this niche with turn-by-turn navigation, even in the remotest places. But nothing comes without drawbacks–and constantly unlocking your phone to check the next turn can be cumbersome and battery intensive. This can be remedied by using an Android Wear device and using the inbuilt navigation, but what about the Samsung Gear 2?

XDA Junior Member drashko has a solution in the form of the DMA Navi Watch, an app for the Samsung Gear 2 which behaves as a navigation-enabled watch face. This replacement watch face provides excellent versatility, without needing to open an app every time. The app accesses Google Navigation notifications from your device, so to get started simply get the app, enable the notification listener, and you’re good to go. When you’re not navigating or going on an adventure to places unknown, the app behaves as a normal watch face by displaying the time, date, and weather augmented with various customization options.

Head on over to the DMA Navi Watch thread to get started with the app or watch the instructional video. Bon voyage!
