Simply access the ticket section and download your itinerary. Or download a connection saved as one of your favourites – or a connection taken directly from the travel information found under My journey. This is all it takes for you to be up-to-date and to get all of your information at a glance.

Information on punctuality Would you like to know if your train is on time? The DB Navigator won’t just keep you up to date on progress on current routes, but also about any possible disruption or delays.
Delay Notification Would you like to know if your train is on time? The Delay Notification makes this possible. Just activate Delay Alarm when you make your booking and if your train is delayed you’ll receive an e-mail straight away.
Help finding your way around What’s the quickest way to the station? DB Navigator’s Google Streetmap will show you. Thanks to integrated GPS mapping, your current position is used as your location.
Tickets and Travel Information When does my train leave? From which platform? Where do I have to change? Your travel information will tell you this at a glance, as well as the exact time of arrival and interim stations.
Alternative routes Missed your train? This function gives you all the alternative connections including an exact route description and departure times for your proposed route.
Location Finder with Augmented Reality This DB Navigator function for smartphones provides you with an excellent aid to getting your bearings, particularly when you are unfamiliar with the area. Simply switch the smartphone camera on, take a look at the area around you through the camera and the stations nearby will appear on the screen – complete with their distance away.
Connections and Footpath Search Your journey doesn’t need to be indirect. The route functions show you the nearest stations and local street maps. So you’ll always be able to find the shortest and best way from door to door.
Flinkster (car-sharing) and Call-a-Bike finder You’ve reached your destination. Where do you go from here? Just transfer from your train. The “Flinkster” and Call-a-Bike finder will show you the nearest place where you can hire cars and bicycles.

DB Navigator needs the following:

Your location:
in order to use your “current position” as the starting point or destination, or let you know what stations are nearby.

Access to your diary:
in order to save information on your connections in your diary. The program needs to know which diary format your smartphone uses. The program does not read any diary entries.

Access to your contact data:
In order to transfer an address from your contacts to use as the starting point / destination, the program has access to your contact data. By selecting a contact, the address which has been saved for this contact is transferred into the starting point / destination field. When you search for connections, the contact’s address is used as the starting point / destination.

These permissions are solely used within the device for the purposes described above.
