Maverick Navigation App
If there is one impressive feature about smart phones these days, it is their capability to find GPS coordinates and direct you from one place to another turn by turn. Most phones these days come with stock software for this, but this is not always as effective as options you could find on your own.
But first you have to know where to look. The Android Marketplace, now known as the Google Play Store has hundreds of navigation apps. They vary in popularity and rating, but there are a couple that stand out.
One great example of this would be Sygic. This is often the first option that comes up when you search navigation in the search bar of Google Play’s marketplace. This is making an impact with people because it is a unique map display, showing 3D style buildings and structures. Also by downloading state by state as you need it, you can use offline navigation to save data. Not to mention the app is free.
Another free app would be the downgraded version of Maverick, which boasts a lot of great features as well. It too has offline navigation, but it stores maps based on what has been seen on the application. Anything you have used in terms of maps are stored into a cache for use offline. There is a pro version of this as well, offering things like support for Foursquare and unlimited waypoints.
