Sat nav apps
« on: Apr 23, 2014, 21:16 »
Looking for a free offline sat nav app and wondered if anyone had any recommendations. There seem to be a few about but most of the reviews I've found have always compared things to paid for apps or ones that require a data connection that i'm not really interested in. Any suggestions?
If you're getting rad and there's nobody there to see it, are you really getting rad?

Google maps doesn't require a data connection once you're moving.

Does it not? Surely it needs one to download the map as it goes. I know you can save certain panels for viewing offline but I figured as soon as you're off the edge it's back to downloading again? I've currently got Navfree on y phone that looks ok but seems to be a complete battery hog.

You need to have data to set the route, but within a reasonable range you've got high detail mapping, and you've got the route plus gps all along your route, so it'll function as a sat nav until you have data again.
