Mapopolis has been the creator of PDA/smartphone GPS navigation software Mapopolis Navigator. Mapopolis used data from Navteq.[1] Starting in 1999, Mapopolis first released software for the Palm OS and later added software for Pocket PC handhelds and Windows smartphones. Mapopolis created the first real-time traffic service (Mapopolis ClearRoute), which provided real-time route updates based on traffic conditions.[2][3]

As of April 1, 2007, Mapopolis has discontinued sales of its consumer software.[4] Map downloads remained available for at least one year past that date for registered users who purchased the product and still did not use up their full 1-year allowance.

Mapopolis Navigator files use a proprietary format and make it impossible for users to export their custom POIs.[5][6]
