Great for use abroad The offline maps are great for use when abroad to avoid roaming fees. Pricing is good for Europe (£3.99) but probably not for Oceania which is the same price. Routing is fully offline unlike Google maps and is worth the extra money. Maps are often large in size (France is 1gb) and there is no option to download parts of countries which have been purchased.
Great app I've been looking for an offline sat nav app for my android phone. Does exactly what I want the app to do. Gives clear routes. Good at providing directions when on foot. However wifi is required initially to download the maps and wasn't straightforward when searching for locations. I then realised that when searching, ignore where it says "city" if you are just looking for a point of interest, ie. Nearby station.
the cursor not as pointer ! so annoy the cursor as circle. you will don't know which way you facing at. the pointer cursor mandatory to know which direction where you at, when you without any route to put - especially as pedestrian or by bicycle. i know there is free mode and you have the pointer, but that unusefull because important place like building or other interest not showed. far better gmaps. think more if you want to buy the full maps like me. tought my data usage will reduce because this can offline, but then back to gmaps.
Great app. Love it on my cycle rides Great little app. Every now and then it would try to take you on a route that goes via a road that is blocked, or has a gate that you cannot get through. It's not a fault of the app it's the background data. There are options to report inaccuracies, you just have to find the sub menu!! Love the app through. Great work. I'm sure give stars on future upgrades!
It automatically selected Philippines as my free maps download which is fine, I can now get reliable directions from Manila to Lucena at the touch of a button/screen. My only real problem with this is that I happen to live in the UK, so directions from Manila to Lucena are about as much use as a cricket bat in the delicates. I'd be more likely to pay for maps if I could see that they were accurate beforehand.
Works very well Its been spot on so far! Can use the online mode for exact location and once its in your favourites it can be found in off-line mode to save on data. Only once had an issue where it was running behind my actual location so missed turning BUT this has only happened once in the year ive been using it. Also find it better than my proper garmin. More than happy
