Announcing ARway V3.1: New Navigation Styles and Enhanced Features

ARway is thrilled to announce the release of Version 3.1, bringing significant updates designed to improve augmented reality (AR) navigation and user interactions. This latest release introduces new navigation styles tailored for diverse environments, ensuring precise and intuitive guidance. Let’s dive into the key features and benefits of ARway V3.1.

Extended Navigation Options

ARway V3.1 introduces the Jumbo Chevron Drift-Friendly Navigation, designed for large open spaces. This style provides extended navigation up to 600 meters (2000 feet) after scanning a visual marker. The large directional arrows and enhanced ground tracking ensure precise guidance in expansive venues like airports or shopping malls. This feature helps maintain clear directions over long distances, making it ideal for large-scale environments.

Additionally, the new Flat Path style offers a versatile option suitable for various spaces, providing straightforward navigation. This path style offers flexibility in creating clear and simple routes, ideal for both wide and narrow pathways. Along with these, ARway V3.1 also includes Arrow Navigation, Glowing Stripes, and Spheres, each catering to different navigation needs.

Improved User Tools

One of the standout features of ARway V3.1 is the Mini Map Navigation. This functionality displays a real-time preview of the navigation route on the AR screen, helping people navigate even when the AR path is obstructed. This ensures continuous directional guidance and enhances the overall navigational efficiency.

Dynamic UI Enhancements in the app for the 2D map adjust Point of Interest and label sizes dynamically when zooming, improving map clarity and interaction. This feature makes navigation more intuitive and user-friendly, ensuring that customers can easily interact with the AR environment.

Enhanced Reliability

ARway V3.1 ensures stability during the map setup process with the Network Failure Back-up Flow. The new APIs allow the resumption of map setup after network disruptions, enhancing reliability and preventing progress loss during unstable network conditions. This feature is crucial for maintaining a seamless mapping process, ensuring creators can work without interruptions.

Interactive Features

Guided Tour Updates add route guidance to direct people back to the path if they stray, maintaining engagement and ensuring they remain on the guided tour. This feature enhances the experience for visitors, ensuring they can enjoy a smooth and informative tour without getting lost.

The updated Location Pin Design and Animation introduce interactive design elements and animations for location pins. These updates add gamification elements, enhancing the overall navigation experience and making it more engaging and enjoyable for customers.

Web Studio 3D Map UX Upgrades

The Web Studio 3D Map UX upgrades in ARway V3.1 include a Color-Changing Path Guide that assists creators in drawing straight paths by changing colors to indicate alignment. New menu icons for Select, Pan, and Rotate 3D views simplify 3D map editing by isolating movement directions. The 3D Map Navigator facilitates easy selection and viewing of specific map sections for editing, making the creative process more manageable.

Bug Fixes and General Enhancements

ARway V3.1 also addresses several issues with general enhancements and specific fixes. Improved QR code detection, IAP scanning, and additional QR code dimension options ensure a more reliable setup. Specific fixes, such as resolving issues with guided tours disappearing after localization and backward compatibility scanning, further improve the platform’s stability and performance.


ARway V3.1 significantly improves the platform’s navigation and customer interaction capabilities, offering new tools and features that cater to various environments and needs. This update underscores ARway’s commitment to advancing augmented reality technology, providing a seamless and engaging experience for everyone.
