Note that we only tested free features – for example some apps offer offline maps, but you need to purchase them. In such case, we marked this feature as non-existent. This is a handy app if you’re looking for “off the shelf” walks in a particular area. As with other apps here, AllTrails makes it possible to create and follow your own routes. However, its main selling point is the easily browsable collection of curated walks. The lack of Ordnance Survey mapping is a downside, though what’s available is fine for most rambling.
- With a route ready to go, you can then follow it with your phone’s GPS , with an arrow showing your location on the map.
- ViewRanger is a solid full-featured app that offers the gold standard Explorer and LandRanger OS maps of the UK as well as National Agency maps for most European countries.
- I like alpinequest on Android and Galileo on iOS with MOBAC to make the maps.
- This allows you to follow the adventurers who inspire you while also saving your favorite trails to challenge yourself.
Download maps ahead of time so you don’t need to rely on the cell signal. We’ve rounded up the best offline GPS apps for tracking, hiking, hunting, traveling, and everything in between. To get updated maps and download information from the internet, our phones need to connect to a network, which is only available within a range of a cell tower. We can’t send messages, we can’t use many apps, and we certainly can’t view new maps.

The only problems with the OpenCycleMap are that you need an internet connection if wanting to look ViewRanger APK on route and also there is no provenance to the shown routes. I used the OS online maps on Saturday for romp up Skiddaw, I was very impressed. I never considered printing off and laminating a hard copy also so thanks for the heads up.
When I’m on an adventure like that I’m stopping to take photos and enjoy the view regularly so checking the ViewRanger app is no bother. It’s just a really enjoyable way to mountain bike on real mountains. I’ve just reinstalled it it’s working lots smother but still giving me the odd patch of part OS map and part Bing. The level of detail depends on the type of GPX file you upload in viewranger. It’s a one off cost to buy the app then doesn’t cost anything after that.
Review : The Matador Freerain24
After just one test run, I know I am going to use it again. There is no link into Google Photos – only Flickr – a storage service I haven’t used in years. That saying, the rest of the app is great and will become my walking partner in the future. I also didn’t suffer massive battery drain and the fact it works where there is no signal is brilliant. The downloaded maps are great too – the whole Isle of Wight in my pocket for £4.49 – paper OS Landranger maps start from £8.99.
There are also hot springs in Zar, a geyser near Karvarchar city, and other springs and waterfalls along the way. Each subscription will automatically renew 3 days before the expiration date for the same time period. Subscriptions can be cancelled at any time before the renewal.
