Uninterrupted end-to end coverage in 5.2 kilometre tunnel
U Mobile users can now drive through the Smart Tunnel without losing Waze coverage while underground. The 5.2 kilometre tunnel has been fitted with Bluetooth-enabled Waze Beacons in an agreement between U Mobile, Waze and Smart Tunnel.
Drivers must have Bluetooth switched on on their phones to continue to receive Waze coverage. To date, over 240 Waze Beacons have been installed. U Mobile is the first telco in the world to provide uninterrupted GPS navigation in a tunnel.
Smart is the world’s longest dual purpose tunnel with over 30,000 users a day.
