Vector Maps based on OpenStreetMap data

  • There is no limit on the number of countries/regions you can download.
  • Detailed and informative.
  • Up-to-date and accurate – we update them monthly.
  • Take up less space than others and work really fast – the app uses GPUs in addition to CPUs to render vector maps.
  • Changeable size of labels – large labels on maps is extremely useful while driving.
  • Multiple languages support – map labels will be changed to the selected language immediately.

Offline Search

  • Incredible fast – results appear instantly as you type.
  • It works in a variety of ways – by object name, category or even by GPS coordinates.
  • It finds objects in multiple languages – this will make your searching much easier than ever.
  • No internet connection required.

Offline multi-stop routing

  • Start the route from any point on the map,
  • Add waypoints from search or directly from the map,
  • Optimize the route with two or more via locations by the shortest time,
  • Save the route for future use: edit, or navigate it later, share with your friends,
  • Rewind between intermediate points while moving along the route,
  • Drive circle routes with the same start and end point.

Geo Data Syncing

  • Any number of devices could sync simultaneously.

GPS Tracks Recording
