The product can be synced to a user’s smartphone through bluetooth via the Lechal app that uses Google Maps to provide navigational directions towards the destination through vibrations and sensations. Subsequently, the company decided to expand the user base by innovating further and marketing it as a product anyone could easily use.

Ducere teamed with Hi-Tec Shoes, Europe, for co-branding and supplying insoles for Hi-Tec navigator shoes meant for hiking. It has distributors in India and North America. Its products are also available on Amazon, reports Outlook Business.
