Welcome to Loadstone GPS

Welcome to the Loadstone GPS website focussing on the new version of Loadstone for IOS. Find information on the previous version for Nokia on the Loadstone Legacy Site.

Please note that this site is under construction. Visit often for updates. 

Loadstone GPS for IOS is an app which enables blind pedestrians to "go blindly where everyone sighted has gone before." What sets Loadstone apart from other GPS apps for the blind?  

  • no data plan required
  • available in multiple languages
  • create, store, and share your own navigation waypoints with others

There is a growing community of Loadstone users, testers and developers. This kind of self-help and collaboration on a global scale is a very new and unique approach.
