Keep track of places

Easily keep track of locations that interest you while on the go with Places. You can return to a location at any time, add names to your Places, and even share them with others. 

Example: While riding your bike you pass by an intriguing new restaurant, but you don’t have time to stop and check it out. You double tap on your Jacquard item and Jacquard saves your current location instantly. At lunch time, you open your Places in the Jacquard app and start navigation to bring you back to the restaurant. When you arrive, you edit the saved Place with the name of the restaurant and a description of what they serve.
