All you possible need in one app
This App is Great Grand Daddy of Google Maps!
Just ok I like the options for offline maps which come in very useful when in remote locations and in various countries where you might not want your data switched on. However the interface is extremely complicated as well as the menus. It's not quick or easy to use, would be nice to modernise it and remain detailed instead of the labyrinth you have to go through to use it now. Zoom could be more detailed too.
Only sore spot is lack of Google hybrid Oruxmaps was forced to remove a few map sources a few versions back, including Google satellite and hybrid. Offline Google maps made this app stand out even further. What is not well known is that you can modify your onlinemapsources.xml file to get it back. (And I decreased to 4 stars because it has been crashing lately.)
50 million features and it partly uses symbols instead of text.. And still with all those features it can't distinguish between start and finish and way points when using a gpx file and there is no way to disable way points. It does seem to have turn by turn navigation but I haven't tried that feature. I guess the search continues for a simple gpx viewer WITH turn by turn navigation
When I enter a GPS coordinate obtained from Google maps in the search address function it puts me 3 miles away on the map. When I enter the number manually (which I would rather not do) in waypoint creation it gets me there albeit still a little off. When online with GPS the map shows me exactly where I am on the map. So, what is going on? I hate typing GPS coordinates when I could be copy and pasting. Please advise.
