Croatian Firm to Provide Official GPS Navigation for Dubai

CroatiaIf you find yourself lost in Dubai and looking for directions to your destination on your smartphone, then you will be using software developed by a Croatian firm..

Dubai has taken the official iPhone and Android app from Zagreb software company Mireo, and says that thanks to its advanced technology, it is more effective than Google Maps.

“We believe that RTA Smart Drive will be more reliable than Google Maps because it uses information received from the police and other public services. It also uses data regarding planned and anticipated bypass roads, traffic accidents, and notifications from taxi drivers,” said Ahmad Hashem Behroozian, from Dubai’s RTA agency who are charged with managing the project.

Besides Dubai, Mireo’s GPS system has also been ordered in Riyadh and Dammam. The majority of Mireo’s revenues are based on exports, but its Don’t Panic GPS app is the most sold app on Croatian iTunes.

“We are proud of the fact that we have got jobs where there is intense international competition, and even more so that we got the smart drive project, which is part of Dubai’s Smart City 2020, which is an extremely complex project,” CEO Leonardo Siladić said.
