With the camping season in full swing, Ooredoo has today urged everyone who travels or camps at the Inland Sea to download its recently updated desert navigation app.

The ‘Ooredoo Inland Sea’ application, which was the first ever Qatar desert navigation app, was designed to help easily navigate people through the desert dunes to safe spots and tourist attractions.

With the new updates, users now have the ability to get directions to landmarks on the map using Google Maps.

To ensure families stay safe, the Ooredoo Inland Sea App also has a direct contact button to several emergency service numbers, aimed to provide aid for drivers lost and stuck in the desert.

Fatima Sultan Al Kuwari, Director, Community and Public Relations, Ooredoo, said: “Thanks to the cooler weather, lots of people are heading into the desert and we want to remind and urge Qatar’s adventurers to download the Inland Sea App. Staying safe should be everyone’s number one priority and the app offers helpful tips, as well as navigation to safe spots and emergency numbers if anything goes wrong.”

Importantly, the application provides users with information such as geography and terrain, camping sites and efficient satellite navigation through the desert using Ooredoo’s Supernet, offering peace of mind for families and friends visiting the area.

For desert visitors wishing to document their trip online, the app also highlights Ooredoo’s Supernet signal towers, so that they can stay connected.

Anyone with a smartphone can download the application now at https://itunes.apple.com/qa/app/ooredoo-inland-sea/id1061454154?mt=8 for iOS users, and https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=qa.ooredoo.android.inlandsea for android.
