Best Free Offline Android GPS Apps
Did you travel a lot these days? Then you must be very glad when Google decide to update their Map service with the offline mode. I’m also feel that this new feature is really helpful. I can download a map data from a place that i’m not too familiar with, plan my travel, and open the map via Google Map, even without any Internet connection, as soon as i arrive there.
However, do you know that Google Map is not the only app that offer good offline GPS navigation for Android? In fact, i can tell you that there are two more worth it-to-download GPS app available in the Play Store right now. Interested? Then check out my list of best three offline GPS app for android.
Google Map. Off course i need to include this app on my list. Aside from the part that it is created by Android’s own chef, Google Map is also pre-loaded in most android devices. So, there’s no way that you don’t use this app, even for once. As i already mention above, Google Map is allow you to save the Map data from a specific place. Load them via GMap app when you need it later, so you shouldn’t worry no more about directions, even when your area is not covered by a good Internet connection. However, i notice two problems. First, you can search point of interest in offline mode. Second, the map will be automatically deleted within 30 days! This is quite disturbing since Google did it without any warning or precautions.
Navfree. If you’re looking for a navigation app that feature turn by turn directions and offline point of interest database, then Navfree is your best buddy. As soon as you launch the app, you will be presented with list of options that looks very similar to normal GPS interface. In fact, you will get accustomed very quickly to Navfree if you’re already used to rely on real-life GPS device. There are plenty of maps that can be downloaded. However, if you’re looking for the US map, you need to download the Navfree US. Although i found that the point of interest database from Navfree is little bit outdated, that is still good enough for a free-cost GPS.
MapDroyd. Looking for a simple map app? Then you should try this one. Forget about the jibber jabber of point-to-point direction or point of interest database. MapDroyd really does what it meant to be, to show you places and location. That is why it’s map data is so small in size. This should be a good advantage for those of you who own old Android with small internal data storage. The good thing is that the map that you saved won’t be disappear! It will last forever on your handset, as long as you choose not to remove it.
