Navigator PRO - GPS Navigation with Offline Maps FREE for Android

Deal Link:
Expiry:
June 24, 2018
Retailer:
Google Play Store
Rarely goes on sale and very useful, so it is worth its own thread.

This is one of the better Offline GPS Navigation apps you can find out there using OSM maps. In my opinion, OSM maps are better than goo gle in Central and South America, and many other off the beaten tracks around the world.

This should help out the frequent traveler when no wifi / cell service is available.

All the OSM based maps have poor POIs. I would take Here Maps any day and night over anything else available on Android. The one exception is TomTom. The interface is slick, fast but yearly subscription model is too expensive. If one time purchase option was available then
  1. TomTom
  2. Here Maps
Google Maps despite being installed on a billion devices still sucks. Fails to give navigation instructions from time to time. No speed limit warnings.

I'll add to the running thread soon.
I just noticed this has only 5000+ installs. I would recommend that you wait until the installs raises to a few hundred thousand. I don't really trust apps with that low install count.

How is this compare to here map?
Everyone here will have their own preference - I like Mapfactor.

Mapedy's Navigator has some extra features that have no real value for me.

They both use pretty much the same OSM maps.
That is not true. Here Maps uses the maps provided by Navteq.
Stop posting incorrect info.

HERE Maps has done me well for a fully offline map. I don't have a data plan so cannot use Waze or Google Maps

My mistake. I removed that comment.

For where Navteq have less converage than OSM, it may be useful, but how does this stack to OsmAnd which has 5 Mil downloads and MapFactor with 10 Mil?

Edit: Actually Maps.ME has 50Mil even...

And btw, Navteq maps = Garmin

Edit: Found this
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compariso ... S_software
MapFactor has ads? OsmAnd limit of 7 maps, so Maps.ME seems to be best all around where you can turn off its non-obstrusive ads

Yeah but you can only cache smaller areas and it has an expiry date, with HERE and OSM, you could download an entire country if you wanted.
