This App is still in developement. In the beginning There might be frequently some updates to remove bugs and to add new features.
This App allows you to import a *.csv / *.asc poi-database packed in a .zip file or extracted in a directory and can inform you if you get close to them. There is also the possibility that you can use your installed navigation system to navigate yourself to the pois.
You may include pictures and sounds which will be shown and played as a additional notification.
There is already some downloadable content at the NaviFriend(dot)com forum.
At the moment there are only a few databases supported.
This is a project which emerged out of a cooperation of some users of the NaviFriends(dot)com forum and me. This App doen not collect any data and has no advertisements.
All the necessary rights during installation are used by the app.
If you find any bugs or have some ideas or have some questions please feel free to contact me under the
e-mail address below.
This application searches for all GPX files and all ZIP files containing GPX files. Select your files and the application will look for all categories. Select your desired categories and export those to your Sygic navigation. The next time you start Sygic, it offers you to import those POIs, assigning the matching icon to each category.
This means additional transformation is not needed. This application generates the correct RUPI file for Sygic.
Note! The application is meant for geocachers. The description in Sygic is therefore adapted:
- Caches: Cache: ()
- Parking: ()
- Via points: 
- Other: (type)
The code is distilled from 'wpt name' (GCnnnnn), the description from 'wpt urlname' or if empty from 'wpt desc' and the category from 'wpt type' or 'wpt sym'. This means the support for the GPX file format is pretty geocaching specific.
+++ Latest version 5.4.1 now available +++
- The application requires additional data (maps, voices etc.) via Wifi (WLAN) after installation
With NAVIGON you can transform your Android smartphone into a fully functional mobile navigation system with on-board maps, which entails no data transfer or roaming charges for map display, route calculation, etc.

Germany, (officially: the Federal Republic of Germany), (German: Bundesrepublik Deutschland) is the largest country in Central Europe. It is bordered to the north by Denmark, to the east by Poland and the Czech Republic, to the south by Austria and Switzerland, and to the west by France, Luxembourg, Belgium and the Netherlands. Germany is a federation of 16 states, roughly corresponding to regions with their own distinct and unique cultures.
Germany is one of the most influential European nations culturally, and one of the world's main economic powers. Known around the world for its precision engineering and high-tech products, it is equally admired by visitors for its old-world charm and "Gemütlichkeit" (cosiness). If you have perceptions of Germany as simply homogeneous, it will surprise you with its many historical regions and local diversity.

Custom Maps can use photos of paper maps or brochures, and pictures of maps posted at trailheads or at the entrances to amusement parks. It can also use .jpeg or .png images downloaded from the internet and screenshots of PDF maps.
All you have to do is choose two (or more) matching points that are common to both the map image and Google Maps, and Custom Maps can then show your GPS location on the map. Data connection is required at the time the map is calibrated (created).
As the map images are stored on the phone, Custom Maps works offline without data signal. This is useful if you go hiking in national or state parks, and it can help you avoid international roaming charges abroad.
Custom Maps can use almost any map image, including photos, as GPS maps so it can be a helpful map application when visiting zoos and amusement parks which typically post large maps of the park layout at the entrance of the park. Just take a photo of the posted map, line it up with Google Maps, and you can see your location on the map photo wherever you are in the park.
Custom Maps can show the distance from your current location to a point on the map, so it can give you an idea how far different points are. This is especially useful for golfers who could create their own GPS maps for golf courses they play.
Custom Maps uses simple image files for maps so you can add your own markup on the maps in a graphics tool (not included in Custom Maps) or draw entirely your own maps. Created maps can be shared using email from the app itself, or by hosting the map on a web server and posting QR codes for others to scan to trigger downloading of those maps.
Custom Maps supports displaying placemarks on the map (starting in version 1.3.0). Placemark editing is not supported in Custom Maps itself (will be supported in a future version), but placemarks can be added in Google Earth. To add placemarks to a map, copy the kmz map file from phone to desktop computer, and open it with Google Earth. Create a folder in Google Earth containing the map overlay and add placemarks to the same folder. Then export the folder from Google Earth as kmz file, and copy back to phone.
NOTE: Custom Maps app does not come with any maps included. The help menu for the map listing contains a link to www.custommapsapp.com website where you can download some sample maps to try. However, the best way to try Custom Maps is to take a photo of a paper map (or of an online map displayed on your computer screen) or download a map image from the web to your device, and then use Custom Maps to create a GPS enabled map from it.
NOTE: On some devices, newly created maps don't show up in map list until the user returns back to map list from normal map display or after exiting and restarting the app. This seems to be an issue only with very few Android versions on specific devices, in most versions newly created maps show up immediately after they are created.
You can find more information about Custom Maps at the application web site http://www.custommapsapp.com/.
Custom Maps is an open source project. Its source code can be found at http://code.google.com/p/custom-maps/.

Here is an example list of what you can safeguard with SineDroid:
√ Freezers and refrigerators power drop
√ Power Generator failures, power drops
√ Remote doorbell (just briefly interrupt the charging power through a push button)
√ "Power slave": detect whether a device switched on (a pump, a lamp, etc.) by using a master/slave power strip
√ Overload and blown fuse detection
√ Boat and vehicle power watch, 12V battery status
√ Solar systems battery watch, battery status
√ Server or PC crash/reboot (USB power drops)
√ Surveillance lights with movement detection (hook the phone charging power to the lamp)
√ Boat leaking detection (using a float that switches the phone charging power on or off)
√ Phone theft (when it’s connected to the charger)
√ Any other power drop or power recovery that feeds your Android phone
In SineDroid, up to three different events are watched: power lost, power restored, and low phone battery level reached. All you need to do, is go to the settings page and fill in on which event you want to be alerted and your mobile phone number. That’s it. The app will warn you as soon the event happens!
Each of these are individually programmable and can have a descriptive name. You can define whether you want just a sound alert, a warning text message, or both.
The main screen shows the name of the scheme and location and the conditions that are watched. A big on/off switch helps you switching off the feature and the quit button will end the application.
The name SineDroid was chosen to be unique and reflects the sine wave that typically is the wave shape of the mains voltage.
√ detects external power loss
√ detects external power recovery
√ detects low phone batters
√ sends SMS text message with user defines warning text on any of the aforementioned events
√ audible signal on any of the aforementioned events
on screen warning on any of the aforementioned events
√ also works in the background or when in suspend mode (sleep)
Related hardware and applications
A typical setup is a cheap Android phone connected to a charger, plus your normal or business mobile phone. Maybe there is no need for you to purchase any additional hardware, but we could think of some useful inexpensive gear...
√ Master/Slave mains power socket: when one socket detects something being powered, the other sockets come alive too. So, if some device is connected to the master socket and it stops operating, the slave socket, where the phone is plugged into, loses power and will trigger SineDroid.
√ Inverted Master/Slave mains power socket: let’s say you attached a pump triggered by a float in your boat. As soon the pump is started by the float, the master socket switches off the slave socket, causing the phone to lose external power. This is detected by SineDroid.
We kindly ask Android permission for:
√ SMS messages (we only send messages to the addressee filled in by you, if configured)
√ internet: the help pages are streamed from www.app4buck.com. No other content is downloaded or uploaded.
√ V1.0 In some docks, after docking, the power events are not detected anymore. If you experience this, simple leave the app and restart the app.
√ V1.0 Freezes after aboutbox, also freezes after double alert
√ V1.2 None._____________________
