Offline map of the Cape Verde Islands for tourist and business visitors. Download the app before you go or using your hotel's Wi-Fi and avoid expensive roaming charges. The map runs completely on your device; map display with pan and infinite zoom, routing, searching, everything. It does not use your data connection at all. Switch your phone function off if you want to!
The application is fully functional, no "in app sales", no extra downloads required. No ads.
The map shows all the islands of the nation of Cape Verde/Cabo Verde and is based on OpenStreetMap data, http://www.openstreetmap.org.
How good is the map?
If you are a tourist visitor, you are mostly likely headed for the island of Sal and the resort town of Santa Maria. The airport, all the roads and main tracks on the island are mapped, though many have no names. The beach area, most of the hotels and eating places are mapped in Santa Maria. Little or no other amenities are listed.
If you are a business visitor, you are mostly likely headed for the island of Santiago and the capital of Santiago. The situation is pretty similar. All the roads are there but only the ones in the centre of town are named.
You can help improve coverage by becoming an OpenStreetMap contributor. We will publish app updates with new information.
Terrain is shown on the map, and can be turned on or off.
The app includes a search function and a gazetteer of commonly needed items like hotels and eating places.
Turn-by-turn navigation is available on devices running Android 2.3 or higher. If you are using an older phone or don't have a GPS device, you can still show a route between two locations.
Navigation will show you an indicative route and can be configured for car, bicycle or foot. The developers provide it without any guarantee that it is always correct. For example, it does not show turn restrictions - places where it is illegal to turn. Some rural roads may be suitable for four-wheel drive vehicles only and/or for people familiar with the area and terrain. Use with care and above all look out for and obey road signs.
System requirements: An memory card with at least 12 MB of space. A GPS device is useful but not required.
