Finding your way with a GPS app

Recommended Posts

Here in Thailand, which GPS app (Android) are you using/recommending to find what you are looking for, either driving or walking?

Google maps works fine for me....

Yup, works fine for me too. Use Google Maps to find the location then bang the co-ordinates into the car GPS (built-in Garmin).

Or open Google maps, type the location , press go and slap it onto the dash, works a treat !!

Logging onto Google will save your locations and home address ( if you tag it ) for future use.

Indeed, but the Garmin (actually the Kenwood entertainment system) has a bigger screen than my phone.

There are few things that I hate in this world, yet Google is one of them!

 

As much as possible I try to use alternatives...

HERE WeGo (former Nokia Maps)

MapFactor

MAPS.ME

to name a few. I prefer HERE, because it works offline. Just download the maps for free and you are good to go in many countries,

Not in my Honda Jazz it hasn’t !!

Going slightly off topic.
Actually the biggest problem I have with using the phone is finding a suitable phone mount when using the gps app !
The suction cup mounts are very versatile but the windscreen is a long way away and in the direct sunshine the suction fails. The dash on my Honda is “ bubbly “ and suction cups don’t stick.
Tried the magnet and air vent version but either have to turn the air off to that particular vent or freeze my phone .
Currently using this but in reverse due to the hondas steep dash !!

Unfortunately yes...it is that or Apple, which I hate even more than Google.

I won't even dream of suggesting a Windows phone  :whistling:

Another good aspect of Google maps is it also gives the route for motorcycle, but only for Android I believe .

They still have to build up a significant market...their devices are more like collector items for the time being...
