"Features worldwide offline maps."
There are many Android apps that will show you where you are and give you quick access to a map. But what most of them have in common is that they rely exclusively on Google Maps, which can be quite a burden if you are not connected to Internet or you worry about the web traffic generated. Fortunately, MapDroyd allows you to save your maps to a SD card and access them offline, whenever you need them.
Here’s why you’ll grow to love MapDroyd:
- You can view maps you saved, offline and unlike other similar apps which only work with cached tiles and images, the maps are based on vectors and you can easily zoom in, zoom out and scale them
- The app has a module that compresses the maps in order to not consume too much space on your card; the compressed files are in MicroMap format
- Support for all maps around the globe, as long as OpenStreetMaps are available for the region
- It can be used as your offline GPS
- Browse maps by their location
- You’ll locate quickly gas stops, restaurants, hotels and other landmarks on the map if they have been added previously to the map
Download MapDroyd if you’re traveling to a region where Internet may not be available and you need a map for orientation.
