Best offline GPS and navigation apps for Android

Our smartphones and Android devices are continuously improving and enhancing, as are the apps which we can use on them. Once upon a time we had to buy expensive Sat Nav’s if we didn’t want to use an old fashioned map to navigate around with.

Now however, all that has changed. With our Android devices now more capable than ever at providing us with a handheld GPS navigation system, all we need is the perfect app to get from A to B. Below are 5 such apps which are not only free, but also very capable of working offline, which is perfect for anybody who travels to different countries and doesn’t want to use their data plan.

  1. Maps

    Maps

    No article worth its salt can suggest navigational apps without mentioning or including Google Maps. It’s completely free and is packed with features, including offering all the local amenities which are available nearby as well as letting you mark parking places and use it as a Sat Nav. It’s great at everything and you can save individual sections of countries to access offline.


  2. MapFactor: GPS Navigation

    MapFactor: GPS Navigation

    MapFactor is designed to work offline. You’ll open it up and choose what and where you want to download to your device. It also boasts voice navigation and shows alerts when you approach traffic cameras and points of interest. It’s a fantastic all-rounded app that is great for transport and travel and it doesn’t cost a thing.


  3. Maps With Me Pro, Offline Maps

    Maps With Me Pro, Offline Maps

    Maps With Me allows you to access the world without an internet connection. It also indicates hundreds of thousands of points of interest across the globe and provides you with the best route to a destination, along with potential alternatives. Each map is also very detailed which helps it stand out from the crowd of navigation apps.


  4. Sygic: GPS Navigation & Maps

    Sygic: GPS Navigation & Maps

    Imagine TomTom Maps but in an app which isn’t called TomTom. This app will help you find your way through different countries and works without an internet connection. There are lots of additional features which you’ll have to pay for after 7 days, however they aren’t useful offline anyway so you can still find your way for free.


  5. HERE

    HERE

    HERE is rather underrated and is perfect for offline use. It allows you to save maps throughout the memory on your device and you can include public transport options. If you’re not overly keen on Google Maps then HERE is a wonderful alternative (actually, every app on here is a great alternative) however HERE manages to be sleek, simple and very useful offline. It’s also completely free.
