NextNav Pinnacle

Add a vertical dimension

Locate users in three dimensions for real-time interaction and experiences in buildings, underground locations, and dense urban areas.

Add vertical location to any game or app

The world isn’t flat. For gamers and app users in urban areas, location means all three dimensions – including vertical. Deliver amazing experiences in buildings and underground with NextNav’s Pinnacle service, which places users with “floor-level” accuracy.

Ryan Litt, CEO, 3AM Innovations

“Vertical location will revolutionize emergency response in urban areas.  We’re excited to be at the forefront of rolling out this important new technology.  We know that it’s going to save lives and improve the quality of emergency services we all depend on.”

“Many brands are expanding their physical footprint right now, with a disproportionate number of new locations planned in urban areas where GPS is less reliable. Adding NextNav’s additional layer of location granularity will be a game changer for retailers and restaurants whose customers are traveling to and from their apartments and condos above ground level.”
