Wonderful maps but routing is still worse than useless
Based on openstreetmap, this provides a fine level of detail and accuracy available on- and off-line. My favourite feature is that once you have opened it with a known wi-fi connection, it will than track your movements around cities using other wi-fi sources without connecting - perfect for sightseeing or simple navigation, especially on foot.
You download only the maps you need. Not only streets but also landmarks such as bus stops, railway stations, restaurants, museums, even house numbers, are all there and searchable (but not yet postcodes / zipcodes). The search process takes some getting used to: you have to locate the town first, then the place.
The routing has always been dubious at best. It only offers one option for driving and it is rarely the best. Walking routes are hopeless: I have tried several I know well and it usually tries to take me through locked gates and private property. The old versions of the app offered smaller map downloads without routing information, but the latest one doesn't, which is a major downside.
A good app
This is a good app which does exactly what it says. Street searches are available which appear to be very accurate, unlike some other apps which appear to be nothing more than advertising which the user pays for but without proper search capability.
Having further reviewed this app there is a problem because it does not allow a search on street alone. I have two maps installed for Czech Republic and if I search for a certain street I get about 100 hits and have to sort through them all to find the one I want. This means I have downgraded the app to3 stars.
It's a great app but having a map which does not have this basic functionality means it will not be my app of choice. I suppose I will have to live in hope that the developers will add this essential search parameter.
This app is so helpful when traveling, once you've downloaded the map you need you can use offline, you are able to search local cafes/hotels/places of interest... and use the compass to get from A to B. I really can't fault it, it was recommended to me by another backpacker and I also recommend it to everyone now!!
