Alminav is an Android navigation app for hiking and cycling
Alminav is a smartphone app for hikers, cyclists, and other outdoor exthusiasts. One of its main advantages is that it can function offline, as signals in the rural areas are often very weak. Maps can be downloaded in advance, and are vectored so as to not take up a lot of space in the phone's storage. Poi databases offer the option to explore on the map cities, streets, restaurants, accomodations, doctors, banks, sport areas, mountains, attractions and more. For trips between two places, the app can plan a walking, biking or car route. You can opt for the fastest or shortest routes. Navigation works offline with downloaded maps.

Map tiles have different sizes and an extension of several longitudes and latitudes. Example: The section n48e005_2x2 contains the area between the latitudes north 48 ° and 50 ° (2 latitudes) and between the longitude east 5 ° and 7 ° (2 longitudes). The large map tiles cover a large part of Europe. From Scandinavia only Denmark and southern Sweden are included.
