Athens offline map
by: AYE Ltd. • 0
Offline map of the greater Athens area 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!
Is it all in Greek? No. We have made the map in Greek and "English". Bilingual information from the original map data is used where available and, in a few cases, we have filled in with our automatic transliteration technology. Relax and enjoy!
The map covers the whole of Athens, including Piraeus/Pireás for ferries and the airport. To the west it covers Eleusina and the island of Salamis. To the east and south it includes all the coastline and to the north it includes the whole of the Mount Parnitha National Park.
The map is based on OpenStreetMap data, http://www.openstreetmap.org.
What is good: Places names (suburbs, towns), roads, paths, things to do and see, buildings within central Athens appear very well mapped. Coverage of hotels, tourist eating places and some amenities like hospitals are reasonably well covered.
What is not so good: Many small roads lack names. Some amenities like doctors and banks are mostly missing. Very few buildings have been outlined. You can help improve it 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, eating places, post offices and pharmacies as well as museums and other things to see and do.
Turn-by-turn navigation is available on devices running Android 3.0 or higher.
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 35 MB of free space. A GPS device is optional for route display but needed for turn-by-turn navigation and finding out where you are. GPS is useful but not required.
We hope it does not happen to you but: Like most small developers, we cannot test a wide variety of phones and tablets. If you have trouble running the application, do email us and we will try to help.
