GPS App Android Suggestions
« on: June 01, 2017, 08:09:18 AM »
Anybody have suggestions for a GPS Nav / Mapping App for Android?  If you are working with one and have had good experiences, please drop a reply. 

There are so many out there and I downloaded 2 of them, Sygic and CoPilot.  Curious what other people are using.  I searched a little around the website and didn't find anything.

For offline maps i use OSMand. I have not tried any advance features. for routes it used to require a 3rd party plugin, idk about now.

Google Earth and if you are willing to shell out the money to keep lots of maps look at Avenza. There is a free version of it, but you are limited to the amount of maps it stores.

I tried and liked US Topo Maps Pro, but it deleted my waypoints when I upgraded to the paid for version.

Other than that, it was awesome and has a route tracer and download offline maps to use without internet.

Import several formats of waypoints, etc.

I'm sure there's some that are better, and maybe I don't know enough about gps, but I was able to use it for what I wanted and I had tried another program and I couldn't even get a waypoint programmed. lol

Avenza!  Thanks guys.  A Forestry guy was showing me Avenza out near Seven Springs.  I couldn't remember the name.  I'll look at the other ones too.

I've been using  Backcounty Navigator for many years now and have been very happy with it.  They are constantly pushing updates. When planning a trip, I typically use Google Maps/Earth to plot things out and export to KML format for the tracks, then import the tracks into Backcounty Navigator.  Other times, i'll pull KML's off trip reports I find, especially Hike Arizona or Trail Damage (UT and CO).

It has many maps type available for free and some that are paid.  I usually download both a topo and arial views of the area I'm planning on going to.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.crittermap.backcountrynavigator.license&hl=en

It's $12 for the main app, but I've found it to be well worth the investment.  What I really like is I can create downloaded areas into separate map databases and then copy off those DB's for later use without the need to re-download again. You can also create separate waypoint/track databases so you can manage your trips better.

I've also Avenza maps from time to time as well.

So I don't use any Hemorrhoid (Android) products.  hahaha  What about iPhone apps for GPS?  I am very new to 4 wheeling and know very little about what GPS to use or buy.  I have searched on the App Store and found a bunch of apps that look like they would help.  How do these apps work when they cannot communicate with cell towers to triangulate location.  My thinking is if they can't communicate, they can't get an accurate location because they do not have GPS sat capabilities.  What features should I look for in a GPS handheld?  ALL help is appreciated.

Scott,
All the smartphones have gps recievers that do not need cell service, cell cervice just give a more accurate position.

OsmAnd has downloadable OFFLInE maps including topo. However the apple version is missing some features.

If you know wherr you are going you can download google maps, of an area. It just needs massive storage space.

I use Gaia maps on ipads with a garmin reciever.
Download maps then gps takes over.
