City Hall welcomes BindiMaps

BindiMaps is a mobile app that locates users precisely in indoor spaces. It uses a simple, natural language audio system to describe where users are and what’s around them, and the best way to get to their chosen destination.

Bindi Maps is free to download from your App store. Once installed you can use it in and around our venues. Ensure you have your location service enabled.
