Any tips for SatNav for Android? (in case relevant: for use in Europe)
I'm coming from a Windows phone so dont have a clue where to begin.
See this mention from 2015 -
OSMAnd+ Maps & NavigationI have found openstreetmap better than google maps on occasion.
If you've got a data connection Google Maps is pretty good, (I used it throughout Ukraine), but I also had MapFactor Navigation
installed for OSM offline maps - I found OSMAnd very slow when it came to scrolling around.
If you go to MyMaps
on your computer you can plot your route in Google which then becomes available under Google Maps on the phone, (Menu
), you can set it as the route to follow rather than your usual options of shortest or quickest.
eg. My Ukraine routes depending on what happened when I got there.What Android Apps Do You Use?
Traffic condition monitoring is pretty good in Google Maps too.
I've used Here WeGo (in the US, but it has global maps).
It might have changed but from when I had it installed it wouldn't work in China, (including HK), due to the Chinese Government, no map downloads were available, (same with Google Maps). Obviously irrelevant if you never plan on going there but something to be aware of if you are, rather than find out when you're there.
The same is applicable to some other destinations.
You had to use something OSM based if you wanted Chinese maps.
