Turn your phone into a powerful navigation system with Polaris Navigation GPS, the world's #1 off road navigator for smart phones.

Imagine... What would it be like to be able to navigate any wilderness, waterway or city with only your phone 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.

While this app is used mainly for offroad navigation and navigating trails, it can be used for city street navigation as well. This complete navigation package includes online and offline maps, a panel for all standard GPS parameters, odometers, altimeters, speedometers as well as trail and waypoint navigation protocols. Also included in this immense tool-set:
