M7 motion processor could have significant benefits for navigation

One of the cool new hardware tidbits stuffed inside the iPhone 5S along with its 64-bit processor was a new dedicated motion coprocessor called the M7. If you wondered exactly what Apple had in mind with that motion processor, a few new details have surfaced today. Apparently, Apple intends to integrate that motion processor with its Maps application.

The M7 processor continuously measures motion data and features an accelerometer, gyroscope, and compass. Apple previously said that it would enable a new generation of health and fitness apps. Source with knowledge of the M7 chip's development claims that Apple plans to tightly integrate the chip with maps the coming years.

This could have some interesting integration such as when using the iPhone for navigation, the maps would know when you stop the car and get out began walking allowing you to finish up your routing directly to the door or even inside the building with Apple's indoor mapping capability. This chip could be the key to a future where GPS navigation doesn't end when you park your car.
