December is a month of presents: people celebrate Christmas and New Year by each other gifts. We've decided not to wait for holidays to come around, and we’re putting on our Santa suit right now, at the beginning of December. So this December begins with presents from MAPS.ME, and they are winging their way to you in a green suitcase!

Open it quick, see what you got! Wow, there are two cool gifts inside! The first one is Point-to-Point navigation, which means you can now create routes from any point, not only from your current location. And you can plan your routes in advance.

Well, you were well behaved this year, so check out your second gift in our newly released version 5.2. What's this you ask? Voice guidance?! Exactly! MAPS.ME will now give you directions while you’re driving. We want you to be safe next year, so we hope this feature will help you to stay focused on the road.

Some important tech notes should be written here. We don't use pre-recorded voices, so the text is reproduced by your device's Text-to-Speech (TTS) built-in feature. So the voice quality and language depend on your device, not on the app. You can check the link to find out more.

Wondering, what app real Santa uses to deliver all the present to the right places just in time? Maybe MAPS.ME helps him to visit all the christmas fairs to find the best gifts for each and every person in this world. We bet this year he will definitely use MAPS.ME with its new awesome features.

And the voice guidance will tell:
"Now, Dasher! Now, Dancer! Now, Prancer, and Vixen!
On, Comet! On, Cupid! On, Dunder and Blixem!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!"

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Yours, MAPS.ME Team
