In the next few lines, I'll show you how the app works COYOTE, to allow you to optimize your trip and thus avoid being trapped in traffic, thanks to its real-time reporting system.

Download the maps

In order to use the app COYOTE as a navigation tool, I recommend first of all to download the maps of the city where you are, or those of the country or region of your interest: in this way, you will reduce the consumption of data that are used during navigation.

One of the most prominent features of the app COYOTE is its system of shared alerts (over 12 million pieces of information exchanged per month) which are characterized by their reliability, as they are sent and verified in real time by members of the community (over 5 million users).

The reports are displayed within a radius of 30 km, remain active for three hours and can be of various types: mobile speed cameras, accidents, slowdowns, traffic, narrowings o obstacles on the roadway, reduced visibility, uneven bottom o slippery road, for example.

These signals with 30Km in advance, allow the user to drive more attentively when the unexpected approaches, so as to have a safer driving behavior and not be unprepared in the event of sudden situations. The alerts are shown on the map in real time and are reported, in turn, by users who can confirm or cancel them, through the appropriate screen that is displayed during navigation.
