Private map search and route planning
You have almost certainly used a route planner before – you enter your starting point and your destination, and it automatically finds the route between your destinations.
At findx, we believe map search and route planning are features you’ll appreciate to keep private. Just imagine you want to take the children on a surprise weekend trip away – you can do that with findx. There will be no noisy teenagers looking at your map search history or your route planning – with findx you can be certain to keep it a surprise!
Private map search
You can find hotels in Copenhagen, look at Monaco’s harbour, or the road names of your home town – No tracking, no history, and no ads popping up for tourist locations on all the websites you visit afterwards. Type in any address you want to visit in private: findx doesn’t track your locations or routes.
Plan your trip in private
Whether you want to go on a surprise trip with your wife, or want to keep the route to Disneyland Paris secret from the kids, you can simply click on the route marker, enter your starting point and your destination, and click Go. The best route will be quickly calculated and displayed.
Of course, you can print the directions to take with you on your trip.
And rest assured, we don’t save any of your routes, where you’ve been, or if you took a detour!
Contribute to improve the map
In alignment of the philosophy that everybody can contribute to improve search Findx uses OpenStreetMap – a collaborative, open source project which provides a free, editable map of the world. Anyone can contribute to this project, coordinated by the OpenStreetMap Foundation, a non-profit organisation registered in England and Wales.
Findx isn’t the only one – Craigslist, Geocaching, and FourSquare are just some of the other web services that use OpenStreetMap.
Contributors respond immediately when disasters devastate areas, providing invaluable updated maps to humanitarian aid workers. They also help to build maps in places where risks are too high for commercial companies to send their workers in. We love how well collaboration works to improve the world!
