Under the Local Guides and Tools section, I suggest: FLIO.

In unfamiliar airports, this app is great at helping you find all of the services available in that airport. For example, I was at Incheon for the first time this year. Through FLIO, I instantly knew about free tours into the city for layovers, the free Korean history museum inside the airport, the ice skating rink inside the airport, the spa, showers, all food places, etc. This app really does a good job of keeping all information in one place.

Android ... .bwt&hl=en

Apple ... 91634?mt=8

It has both the Canadian and US crossings

just returned form maui and used the GyPSy guide app.

Best $10 I have spent. It was like having a private tour guide in the car.
Told you lots of info. Where to stop what to see.
Used it all over the island but especially on Road to Hana.

mostly guides for US and Canada destinations.
Thank you all! I have added all of your suggestions.
