You’re very welcome.
I have to confess that Lazarillo is my personal favourite. Soundscape is just
full of distracting noises to me.
All the best

Soundscape would be a good option, though they only use Open Street maps, which
are woefully inadequate in some parts of the UK.
Lazarillo is also a great app and it uses Google maps.
These are both available in iOS.

Subject: [access-uk] Satnav options on IOS
I'm due to be moving to a brand new city within the next few months and so
going to have to learn all sorts of new routes. I will be getting professional
mobility training but I was also wondering on whehter or not any members use
satnav apps on their iPhones to help navigate. I'm totally blind and use a
long cane. I would ideally like turn-by-turn audio prompts on routes. I'm
aware of the Ios Maps and Googlemaps apps but not sure how well they work in
pedestrian mode as a blind user.
Any help greatfully received.
