Azores offline map
by: AYE Ltd. • 1
Offline map of the island of the Azores/Açores for tourist & 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 zoom, routing, searching, everything. It does not use your data connection at all. Switch your phone function off if you want to! NSA proof!
No ads. All features fully functional on installation, you do not need to buy add-ons or do extra downloads.
The map shows all the islands and is based on OpenStreetMap data, http://www.openstreetmap.org.
If you are a tourist visitor, you are mostly likely headed for the main island of São Miguel and the capital Praia or Horta in Fayal/Faial. On business, you may be heading for Praia too. Praia is well mapped with th airport, roads and main hotels and eating places. The map of Horta is simple, see screen shots, but also seems to have the main features properly mapped.
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 with GPS. If you 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 cannot guarantee correctness. 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 4 MB of free space. A GPS device is useful but optional.
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.
