BreadCrumbz for the Android mobile phone takes GPS to a whole new level by incorporating images and landmarks into directions. Using the Android's camera and built-in GPS, BreadCrumbz users can take photos and geo-tag them before linking them together for directions that feature landmarks.

This picture-based map lets BreadCrumbz users convey specific details of a route that aren't easily communicated on a traditional map or text format. Rather than trying to explain to a friend how to navigate a tricky landscape, you can show them the way with photos.
