When your users want to get from one location to another, don’t push them out of your application into a generic map application. Instead, keep them engaged with your application 100% of the time with in-app turn-by-turn navigation.

The Mapbox Navigation SDK for Android is built on top of the Mapbox Directions API and the Mapbox Maps SDK to provide tools needed to build a complete navigation experience.

The Mapbox Navigation SDK is a precise and flexible platform which enables your users to explore the world's streets. We are designing new maps specifically for navigation that highlight traffic conditions and helpful landmarks. The calculations are based on the user's current location and compare it to the current route that the user's traversing to provide critical information at any given moment. You control the entire experience, from the time your user chooses a destination to when they arrive.

Getting Started

Refer to the full documentation pages for installation and usage instructions.

For the latest version and changelog visit CHANGELOG or releases pages.

Along with the full documentation, this migration guide can help you transition your project from version v1 of the Navigation SDK to v2 or higher.
