Routes is an easy to use android app that allows you to view maps based on OpenStreetMaps and other services. You can then use these for orientation, GPS tracking and GPX, KML navigation.

Whether hiking, biking, skiing or other outdoor activities … with “Routes – GPX/KML navigation, simulation & GPS tracking” you will never get lost again! Routes allows you to load your own planned or otherwise provided routes from your favorite portals such as Goolge, AllTrails (Gpsies), Polar, Garmin (and many others). Routes supports the file formats GPX and KML. After opening a file in Routes, you can start a simulation or start navigating directly. In any case, Routes guides you along the track. If you ever lose the track, Routes will notify you visually and by alarm. It is not necessary to always keep an eye on the display. You can concentrate fully on your route and enjoy the beautiful things on it.
