Online vs Offline Maps: Which is Better for Smartphone Battery Consumption at Live Events?

The battery consumption rate of a smartphone using an interactive map versus a map that can be downloaded and used offline depends on several factors, including the size and complexity of the map, the level of interactivity, and the quality of the smartphone’s battery.

In general, an interactive map that requires constant data connectivity will consume more battery power than a map that can be downloaded and used offline. This is because the smartphone must constantly transmit and receive data to display the map and respond to user interaction.

On the other hand, a map that can be downloaded and used offline will typically require less battery power since the smartphone does not need to maintain a constant data connection.

The Gyder app works both online and offline, which helps with battery consumption and is extremely useful when signal quality is low or non-existent.

What are the advantages of using Gyder maps versus general map suppliers such as google maps?

There are several advantages of using map and application over general map suppliers like Google Maps:

  • Customisation: allows event organisers to customise the map and application to suit the needs of their specific event. This means that the map can be tailored to highlight event-specific features such as stages, exhibitors, food vendors, restrooms, and more.
  • Offline Access: The map and application can be accessed offline, which is particularly useful for outdoor events where internet connectivity may be limited. Attendees can download the map and application before the event and use it throughout the day without needing a data connection.
  • Live Updates: The map and application provide real-time updates to attendees, including changes to schedules, cancellations, and other event-related information. This helps to keep attendees informed and ensures that they don’t miss out on any important updates or changes.
  • Interactivity: The map and application offer a range of interactive features that allow attendees to engage with the event in new and exciting ways. For example, attendees can use the application to locate and interact with vendors, participate in interactive games, and more.
  • Personalisation: The map and application can be personalised to each attendee, providing a unique experience for each person. Attendees can use the application to create a personalised schedule, receive personalised recommendations, and more.
  • Data Collection: The map and application can collect data on attendee behaviour, such as which areas of the event are most popular, which vendors are most visited, and more. This information can be used by event organisers to improve future events and enhance the attendee experience.

Overall, Gyder offers a range of advantages over general map suppliers like Google Maps, including customisation, offline access, live updates, interactivity, personalisation, and data collection.
