Turn your phone into a powerful GPS navigation system with Polaris Navigation GPS, the world's #1 all-purpose GPS, and dare to go where there are no roads.
Imagine... What would it be like to navigate any waterway or hike any wilderness or city using only your phone's GPS location abilities and a view of the sky? What it would be like to create navigation destinations without the need of an internet connection and find them using only an arrow or offline maps.
That is just a glimpse of the navigational power you will hold in your hands when you install Polaris Navigation GPS.
Used mostly as a hiking, off road, nautical and trail GPS app, Polaris is an excellent backup or replacement for your Garmin or other handheld GPS unit and will keep you oriented wherever your outdoor adventures take you!
Typical usage: Makes an excellent hiking app for exploring the backcountry, recording and viewing tracks, boating, fishing, hunting, geocaching, camping, sailing, mountain biking, backpacking.
Road navigation and verbal street directions are provided through a digital pipeline connecting the power of Polaris to the Google Maps app on your device.
