Navigator PRO - GPS Navigation with Offline Maps FREE for Android

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.

Everyone here will have their own preference - I like Mapfactor.

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

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.

I mainly just use Waze (online) and Google Map (offline), but it's good to have a free back up. For travelling without data I find that offline cache on Google serves plenty purposes, especially since you can save up to multiple. Also I believe the expiry date will keep extending as long as you use it, I recently found an offline google map cache of our home area on my wife's phone that was there for a couple years.

Never heard of the rest of the maps everyone mentioned though, this is an educating thread.
RFD: Pick any two.
  • In stock
  • Low Price
  • Quality Product

I clicked on this thread with the intention of D/L this but decided that I should just stick to the one that I already use. FWIW, although I have installed HERE and WAZE, I rarely use those as I had also installed MAPS.ME years ago. It has been working very well and I rarely have any issues with it (think my issue is with my phone not working properly). I do not have data on my phone but MAPS.ME provides offline maps using OpenStreetMap data.

Thanks OP! Would have got this but realized also that I'm starting to run out of space. Maybe I'll get it but not install it (yet). Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Tightly-closed Eyes

I think you need to have wifi or data connection for the initial route. After that, you may turn it off. But, it won't reroute? This is what I have read so not sure 100%

you can always install, then uninstall after a couple of hours
this way, google play store is aware you've "purchased" this in the past
Then, you can re-download for free at a later date
