    This work presents the analysis and comparison of different development kits that provide solutions for navigation indoors. The work also provides a more in-depth overview of the development kit chosen for the development of a prototype application for locating products indoors. The prototype was tested on the premises of Faculty of Computer and Information science, on several different mobile devices with Android mobile operating system. We analysed and compared MapsIndoors SDK, IndoorAtlas SDK and indoo.rs SDK development kits. The development kit used for the prototype was IndoorAtlas SDK, which includes a web interface, to control applications and locations, and a mobile application MapCreator 2, for creating indoor data based on geomagnetic fields, acoustic signals, Bluetooth signals and WiFi signals. We have also developed our own program logic that calculates the angle between the users path and his point of interest. This was achieved with the use of accelerometer and gyroscope.
