OsmAnd-an application for those who travel a lot and want to freely navigate the terrain. Once in another city, we are faced with a number of problems: it is difficult to find even a bus stop. Passers-by respond reluctantly, no signs, and the usual maps from Google does give birth to unknown wilds. For such situations, and there is an application OsmAnd Maps & Navigation. The program gives detailed information about the nearest hotels, restaurants, places for entertainment and just stops.
An important difference from most applications that use the map is that it has its own database, which does not interact with the same Google. Hence some pros and cons of the app. In the pros you can write your own maps, which are constantly updated, providing the latest information about the area. Here it is necessary to note several shortcomings. First, they are loaded in parts. If you live, say, in Rostov-on-don, then when you travel to another city you will have to download its maps separately. Secondly, some settlements of the CIS countries are written “translit”, which looks strange, since all restaurants, cafes, shops and other places are correctly displayed in Russian.
In addition to the usual maps, there is a category of “My places”, where you can mark your favorite places to come back to them soon, and all clear”Search”. If you are told about some place, but you do not know where it is – feel free to use this feature.
OsmAnd Maps & Navigation-a good program for travelers and for those who are poorly oriented in their city or eager to find interesting places.
