    Only just moved over from Nokia to Android >The big thing I regret and miss is Ovi Maps
    It was a excellent off line gps map software with find and navigate functions

    Surly there is something Similar for the Android System I have sent all week searching and trying different ones::(:(
    I will not want to use data just use GPS and download the maps via Internet or free wi-fi to the SD card It is mainly search streets and on foot in cities and countryside in UK and Europe


    1) Skobbler
    Only works if you have a data connection as maps are not street if you use the downloaded maps you have no search or navigate ???

    2) Navit
    Rubbish could not get to find streets and locks up and is slow

    3) Mapdroyd
    Excellent maps and on sd but can only show were you are and has no search
    Anybody any ideas or found a good one even a pay one but must have foot and street maps

    4) Sygic
    This seems to get good reviews but seem more for cars and the cost is 30 euros !!!!!!!

    Please help !!!!

    A low-cost nav app is 'NavDroyd' :)
    It has the same maps as MapDroyd and the same dev.

    Ovi Maps was amazing. I used it all the time on my SE when I didn't have data. I have unlimited data now so Google Maps is a fine replacement (it's pretty much exactly the same thing), but I can feel your pain. I don't understand why Google doesn't just make an offline version of its service.

    It does not? I did take it because I have MapDroyd and saw in the discription of NavDroid as maps vector OpenStreetMaps, the same maps MapDroyd uses.

    I don't use NavDroid because I have versions from Navigion (now a Garmin company) and CoPilot from my older phones.

    Both are excellently nav app (for pedestrians too) but not low-cost ;)
