    GPS Navigation & Maps - USA's review

    Published: 2016-10-18, by .

    Free, and works even if you don't have an internet connection

    7.2
    • Works without a connection
    • GPS navigation with voice instructions
    • Up-to-date information
    • You have to pay if you want additional info packs

    "The alternative map tool"

    THE VERDICT

    There are a lot of map apps that make use of the GPS on our phones and that, like Google Maps (the most renowned map app), let us find places, work out routes, and guide us to our destination with voice instructions. Although there are loads of valid alternatives, GPS Navigation & Maps from Scout seems to be one of the soundest. It stands out in that it offers a wide range of maps without connection, as well as useful GPS navigation.

    THE PROS

    To start with, it's important to note that this is app is completely free. The maps it displays can be downloaded separately, without needing to pay a cent. This is probably the greatest benefit, but there's more. We love it because it works without an internet connection (just download the maps of the places you want first via a WiFi connection), and because it has up-to-date information about road traffic and other news in real time. We also like it because it works as a GPS navigator, and that you only need your mobile to hand in order to set a route and receive voice instructions as you go.

    THE CONS

    If you want to widen the information that the maps display (even though we don't see any reason why you'd need to), you'll need to buy some small extension packs. Luckily, they don't cost much.

    Description

    No marketing gloss now, just facts.
    Two full-fledged apps in one:
    Navigation with voice prompts (turn-by-turn)
    +
    Worldwide Travel Map (OSM).
    skobbler NGx cutting-edge map technology.
    Your choice for maps and navigation: online or offline.
    Entire countries also utilizable without internet access.
    One country included in package for offline use.
    Various search functions.
    All (!) functions also accessible offline.
    This is what you get with GPS Navigation & Maps.

    So - now for the gloss :-)

    FULL-FLEDGED NAVIGATION FOR VEHICLES AND ROUTE GUIDANCE FOR PEDESTRIANS, ONLINE OR OFFLINE
    * Gives you full-fledged turn-by-turn navigation. Functionality such as speed warnings, street sign displays, 3D-view (isometric) and much more is of course included. Entirely online or offline (see below).

    ONE WORLDWIDE MAP RATHER THAN A WHOLE LOAD OF SMALL MAPS, ONLINE OR OFFLINE
    * With GPS Navigation & Maps you need worry no more about orientation. No need for paper maps. No matter where you are or where the journey takes you, OpenStreetMap is available to you everywhere.

    And you can choose where you want to use it online and where offline. Online, the entire map is continuously available. One entire country is included in the package for offline use. You can enhance this within the app with almost 1000 additions (cities, countries, continents). Download each area (ideally in a WLAN) so you always have it with you, even without internet connection, so you can use it to its full extent. Also included are all cities and their street maps. The map is always seamless. You never need to switch between several maps.

    SKOBBLER NGX TECHNOLOGY: TOP GRAPHICS, ROUTE CALCULATIONS, VARIOUS PRESENTATION TYPES AND NO OFFLINE HALF-MEASURES
    * GPS Navigation & Maps includes skobbler's innovative NGx map technology. So you get maps that look great and move, zoom and turn with unrivalled fluidity. Simply touch the map for slightly longer to interact with individual points on the map. You will never get a blurred image or useless empty 'map-loading' tiles.

    Instead, you get different map styles (e.g. night, outdoor) and a route planner for vehicles and pedestrians. Something else you won't find anywhere else: all functions can be used both online and offline (in installed map areas).

    FEATURES
    * Full-fledged navigation with voice prompts (turn-by-turn)
    * Completely interactive OpenStreetMap
    * One single map with global coverage
    * Full functionality with and (after installation) without Internet connection (online and offline)
    * Installability of entire countries inc. their city maps (WLAN recommended)
    * Ongoing free map updates
    * High-performance map technology (NGx)
    * Route planner (vehicle, pedestrian)
    * Various map styles (e.g. night, outdoor)
    * Various search functions
    * IdeaLog for feedback to developers
    * Convenient favorites lists
    * Optional synchronization of favorites using the web portal maps.skobbler.com

    So GPS Navigation & Maps is the perfect companion when you are on the move. Wherever you are. Maps as you need and want them. To do this the app uses the maps of the superb OpenStreetMap (http://openstreetmap.org).

    Experience for yourself what more than one million mapping enthusiasts worldwide have made possible with OpenStreetMap and have the skobbler maps quality (http://maps.skobbler.com) at your fingertips at any time.

    Not to bad. Updated maps would be a plus. But over all it gets me where I need to be.
