GALACTIO V8.8 New features

iSearch – Find places the easy way, FAST
The new version of the Galactio V8 (now, at version 8.8) includes extremely powerful search mechanisms that make it easy to find places quickly. Apart from the usual categorized places, Galactio V8 includes universal search that searches for places from all categories – addresses, postal codes, road names and point of interest. This makes it fast to search without answering the question: “Should I search for ROBERTSON WALK under Points of Interest or Roads?”
All searched in V8.8 are powered by a new search system that offers:
• A keyboard with disappearing keys (so that you can’t type the wrong things)
• Word completion that helps you quickly complete the word rather than type it completely
• Out of sequence searching (so that you don’t need to remember the exact name)

The screenshots below show the new search system. Let’s say you want to go to NATIONAL UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL.

1. As you type, the keys disappear to make sure that you make no mistakes
Image

2. Once you have typed in “HOSP”, the system gives you options that you can complete the word with – tap on “HOSPITAL”
Image

3. Type “N”, and the system realizes that only a few combinations are possible – you can tap “NATIONAL” to auto-fill the search term. (By the way, it is already showing the term “NATIONAL UNIVERSITY HOSPIT..” on the top right – tapping the term will skip searching and show you the results directly)
Image

4. With the search term as “HOSPITAL NATIONAL”, the system has enough information.

The Powerful iSearch engine for Galactio v8.8 will provide the correct search result even if you key in the WRONG sequence.
An example: NATIONAL UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL
or: UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL NATIONAL
0r HOSPITAL NATIONAL UNIVERSITY

Now users of Galactio v8.8 will not have issue of not able to locate the Roads or POI due to not knowing if the names use are:
Komplex=Complex=Compleks=Kompleks
Baru=Bharu=Bahru
Teluk=Telok
Air=Ayer=Ayeh

Example: Mutiara Shoping Complex, can be:
Mutiara Complex
Multiara Kompleks
Mutiara Shopping Kompleks
Kompleks Mutiara
Complex Mutiara
Shopping Complex Mutiara
Shopping Kompleks Mutiara

KL Tower – for some people, they call
Menara KL,
Menara Kuala Lumpur
Kuala Lumpur Tower
Kuala Lumpur Menara

Time Square – Berjaya Time Square

University Malaya
Malaya University
Universiti Malaya
Malaya Universiti

KL- Kuala Lumpur
Jln- Jalan

etc.

Spacing
Jalan SS23/11
Jalan SS 23/11
Jalan SS 23 /11
Jalan SS 23/ 11
Jalan SS 23 / 11
SS 23/11
Jln SS23/11
and etc…..

Dear MalFreeMaps members,

Galactio is seeking ideas and ways to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of our Navigation Software.

Rather than focusing purely on ‘functionality’, we hope to improve on the User Interface and adding more contents to the current MFM maps data for our Galactio users.

The aim is to encourage additional perspective to our software, as normal end-users, drivers and hardcore users, etc.

Let us know what you hope to see and have in a Navigation Software.

We're listening.

Galactio

When I key in alphabets into the keyboard, the alphabets disappear after the first alphabet :shock:

And there's no suggestion of place. Any idea what happen?
