Privacy-focused, open-source, free and fast offline maps without ads.

Organic Maps is an open source, community-developed map display and satnav-style navigation app for walkers, drivers, and cyclists. The app offers worldwide offline maps based on OpenStreetMap data, and navigation with privacy - no location tracking, no data collection, and no ads. In fact most features operate without a data connection, ideal for travel on distant hiking trails or locations with poor connections. The app is free and open-source software, with priority for community development and collaboration.[1]

GPX Track recording (iOS only)
