Ottawa Nav is a first of its kind connected city platform allowing real time, zone based communication between the City of Ottawa and its citizens. This platform is managed using an administrative console controlled directly by City of Ottawa employees.

With a current emphasis on traffic, you get live camera, road and traffic information from a 2.5 or up to 100 kilometre radius, depending on your distance of travel. A unique zone centric navigation mode further helps in passing on information while on the go.

With zones, the City of Ottawa has turned every area to a smart space, catered to finding information easily, personally and instantly. For example:

At Parliament Hill? Check out their zone to see when they're open, history about our country, and exciting events going on.
Near one of our great museums? Check out their zone to access their apps, opening times, and interesting exhibits.
In a city zone? Check out traffic cameras and events, plus other services such as OC Transpo and Pay by cell relevant to the zone you’re in.

Look forward to more zones being created around the city.

Ottawa Nav is an all Canadian connected city partnership is made possible using the award winning Flybits technology in collaboration with the City of Ottawa and Ryerson University.

Thank you for choosing Ottawa Nav. It is a central information hub for everyone in our great city. For support and feedback, please contact us at

Stay tuned for new and exciting features in the future.

    Not well laid out, very clumsy. I prefer some of the other apps for Ottawa traffic cameras. Hugely disappointed in this "thrown together" app. Every time the app starts, it tells me no GPS detected. If I wanted it enabled, it would be already, and I certainly don't need a reminder each and every time. I know this is v1.0, but honestly it could have been so much better. I prefer the Ottawa T

    The interface is poorly designed for a smart phone. The info is there but not clearly presented.

    No camera overlay setting on navigation map, zone map only displays selected camera, map freezes returning from menu, cameras should display compass direction. Route planning function...? Look elsewhere...Poor effort overall.

    As it's already been mentioned, you need an account. Do we really need one? I find it hard to believe you couldn't have an option to lookup on the fly. If you want to save a search for your everyday or occasional travel that's fine, but by default, right off the bat? You're losing users with that one. Can't go any further in the review, never got further than the login screen. I'm not creating y
