What are the best offline gps solutions currently on the market for android?
For the US, I'd go with CoPilot Live -- special Labor Day discount pricing expires soon.
They're really good about map updates, issued monthly, and make it easy for you to report map problems, with a guarantee of 45-day turnaround for most updates.
Ndrive 10 is the best offline gps but you have to buy for the maps (one time only)
CoPilot has been amazing for me. The maps are 100% accurate in Canada and US (Ontario/New York) is all I've tested though.
Now you can cache map areas. Open maps -> long press an area -> when the address pops up, select it -> select pre cache map area. It will download a 10 mile radius (100 sq mi), and you can repeat this as much as needed.
Turn-by-turn navigation for car: NAVIGON.
Routing navigation for offroad biking/hiking: ViewRanger with premium topo maps.
Before I switched to Android when I had an iPhone I loved navigon, I just think google maps is the best on android and being able to cache map data free is great!
Copilot for the user interface and ease of implementing custom POIs (speedcams etc)
Sygic for the quality of the map display
You can use Maverick (or it's Pro version)
Better look for v1.94, instead of the latest v1.95.
It takes aways using Google Map in v1.95.
There are many v1.94 Maverick Pro around, just search.
thanks for all the great apps you mentioned guys
I downloaded Maverick, but I'm a little confused. Is this just a standard map utility or is it a navigational tool to get from home to vacation, etc?
Maverick isn't a turn-by-turn navigation. You can import a tour as track (.gpx file) and then follow this track line
The best use of the app is for walking, hiking, biking, skiing ...
