The app is based on the iGO navigation software, so if you are familiar with this interface you will find it easy to use. The software is used on various platforms and in all regions so you can be sure that the software is tried and tested.
For those of you familiar with Tracks4Africa maps, you will know that our maps do not cover address lookup in South Africa, we specialise in the remote and interesting places in Africa where other maps fail to provide reliable detail.
The software itself is not part of the Garmin ecosystem, so if you are an existing Tracks4Africa user on Garmin GPS, please do not expect to send routes and tracks between your computer and this platform. This is a stand alone navigation system for your Android device.
The use of the software requires that your device has a GPS and you would need to provide it with external power when used for prolonged periods as the GPS together with the screen will drain your battery in no time.
