About this app

Yandex Maps is the ultimate app for navigating the city around you. Yandex Maps is packed with useful features that can help you get around with comfort and ease. There’s Navigator, with info on traffic jams and cameras, and voice assistant Alice. There’s searching for places by address, name, or category. There’s public transport like buses, trolleybuses, and trams moving on the map in real time. Pick any mode of transport to get to your destination. Or create a walking route if you feel like it.

• Real-time traffic forecasts to get you moving and avoid traffic jams.
• Voice prompts for turns, cameras, speed limits, accidents, and roadworks to help you navigate without looking at the screen.

• The app recommends faster routes if the traffic conditions have changed.
• To navigate offline, simply download an offline map.

I prefer using Yandex products for everything as an alternative to Google, but for where I live and many places I've visited Yandex.Maps isn't a viable alternative yet. Many streets/roads are missing and the majority of places are missing as well in South Florida, USA and in all of Suriname, and Venezuela. I'd love to see this app grow to be a direct competitor with Google Maps on a more global scale. It would be a nice feature to submit missing roads/places on Yandex.Maps since there isn't much in places I've been. I will continue to support this app, but it is not my primary app due to my region. I recommend a different Google Maps alternative for the same reason. *Sputnik Maps is a good web alternative for my region, but it lacks a mobile application.

Thanks for your feedback and support! We are glad to know that you find our apps useful :) We will consider your wish and consider improving maps of South Florida, Suriname, and Venezuela, but at the moment I cannot promise anything specific.

Aggressive, large scale advertising covering 1/5 of the screen. No way to disable, turn off even with paid yandex account. Clearly made due to lack of competition. Strongly recommend to switch to alternative route planners. The add appears randomly when navigation is active. It doesn't follow any pattern, you just get a screen blocking interface above route length bar. It doesn't dissappear, and it stays until you swipe it or press the close button.

Yandex Plus subscription does not have any effect on ads display. It is important for us that ads do not distract from driving. Ad banners may appear at zero speed when the driver is in a traffic jam. Regarding route guidance, do we understand correctly that you are having issues with the route guidance notification? Or is it a different issue?

This is probably the best navigation app I've ever used to navigate in big cities like Moscow and St-Petersburg. It rocks as long as you stay within it's map coverage. Tip: Sometimes offline map may become unavailable for certain areas. Maybe the reason is overlapping maps like "Moscow oblast" and "Podolsk". Avoid such overlap when possible. Edit: Tried to reproduce the bug, but the map loads perfectly fine right now. Definitely would recommend the app!
