The feelSpace application is designed to be used together with the feelSpace naviBelt. It allows you to select any geographic target and indicates the direction from your current location to the selected destination graphically, on your smartphone screen, and tactilely, with vibrations via the naviBelt. The application is intended for outdoor use by pedestrians. Directions are communicated by the naviBelt tactilely and intuitively. Using tactile directions should help the user focus his/her eyes and attention on his/her surrounding environment rather than on a smartphone.Depending on your needs, you can choose between navigation modes in the app to either discplay the beeline or routes.

No guarantee can be given for the accuracy and correctness of the GPS data, location and destination information displayed in the feelSpace app. feelSpace can never replace good travel, orientation, or mobility skills, rather providing additional information to help the user apply these skills. Obstacles are not indicated by this application. Road conditions, traffic regulations and road signs should always take precedence.

This app can also be used by blind people using the iPhone’s VoiceOver feature. The use of the app should be practised with a mobility rehabilitation instructor or another experienced person before the feelSpace app and/or the naviBelt are used in road traffic. However, its use in conjunction with the feelSpace naviBelt does not replace a cane or a guide dog. Obstacles and potential hazards are not indicated by this application. The user must use his/her own senses and discretion.

GPS data, internet and Bluetooth are required to use the application’s full range of features. Their continuous use can greatly reduce the battery life of your smartphone. feelSpace GmbH cannot guarantee that these services are always available. For long trips, a powerbank is recommended.

By continuing, you declare that you have read this disclaimer, accept it and use the feelSpace application and naviBelt at your own risk. This text and the terms of use can be found at www.feelspace.de/app_legal and in the application under Settings > Information.

Information and objections regarding GPS-usage and data transmission

  1. When using this application, the user must be aware that its software collects information from the GPS system, the smartphone’s built-in GPS module, and localization services of Apple Maps.
  2. The GPS system does not provide 100% accurate data, and this affects the position displayed. Depending on the smartphone, weather conditions, and other influences, the accuracy can vary greatly. In general, accuracy is within 10 m. The application calculates the beeline or a route from the current location to a target position based on the available data. The environmental conditions and the distance influence how correct the information is.
  3. The user should carefully decide to what extent he/she utilizes the information provided by the application and uses the application at his/her own risk. feelSpace GmbH can never replace good travel, orientation, or mobility skills, rather providing additional information to help the user apply these skills. Obstacles are not signaled by this application. Road conditions, traffic regulations and road signs should always take precedence.
  4. This application requires an internet connection for various features: loading the maps, address search, location query, route calculation and links to further information. Depending on the device configuration, the payment conditions for internet access, and the transmission of data, additional costs can be incurred by the user.

Liability

  1. The user may not claim compensation for damages. This does not include claims for compensation based on loss of life, bodily injury, or harm to health, or due to the violation of essential contractual obligations or an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by the supplier, their legal representatives or vicarious agents.
  2. In the event of a breach of essential contractual obligations, the supplier is only liable for the foreseeable damage that is typical for the contract, if this is simply caused by negligence, unless the customer claims damages based on loss of life, bodily injury, or harm to health.
  3. The limitations of paragraphs 1 and 2 also apply to the supplier’s legal representatives and vicarious agents if claims are directly asserted against them.
  4. The limitations of liability resulting from paragraphs 1 and 2 do not apply if the supplier has fraudulently concealed a defect or has given a guarantee for the quality of the item. This is also the case if the supplier and the customer made an agreement on the quality of the item. The provisions of the product liability remain unaffected.
