Well, GPS system in our smartphones have been used to navigate city streets, but have you ever wondered if there’s no connectivity? Recently, Microsoft had launched an app that allows users to navigate city streets without using the GPS.

The new app launched by Microsoft is only available to Android users right now. The Path guide app uses sensors on your phone to record every movement in a particular area, or even in the city. Path Guide app allows users can produce maps of buildings and permits them to make these maps public, allowing other users to search and travel their way throughout buildings.
Path Guide app can also be utilized in multiple scenarios like recording every step you take and distance you traveled within the building. The app also enables users to record audio, notes, and images which will help others who use the maps later.
Here’s how Google Play Store describes Microsoft’s Path Guide app:
“Path Guide is a completely map-free, infrastructure-free, plug-and-play indoor navigation service. It exploits the ubiquitous geomagnetism and natural walking patterns to guide users to destinations along a path collected by an earlier traveler.”
