    I don't know about about Google maps, since I don't use it. But it is possible to use OSMAnd+ offline. It's available from F-droid.

    OsmAnd has been my favourite navigation app for years and years now. Offline maps make that I can get by with a very minimal mobile data package and I find it better than Google Maps especially for cycling.
  • Google Maps adds a dedicated 'lite' navigation mode for cyclists

    You'll need to use a map instead of a phone book for that. Try Magic Earth or Osmand instead of Google Maps Yellow Pages.

    For trails, you can use the free OSMAnd app or OpenStreetMap
  • Offline Maps reality check
    At my age I've been wrong a lot, enough to know that there will always be a next time... So the first thing I did was go back to the podcast to see if "today" was "again" and if humble pie would be for lunch ;-) The segment on maps starts at about 2:20. At about 3:05 he states "The biggest feature of OSMAND is the ability to download offline maps..." at about 4:00 he tells us that it allows us to navigate even with no data signal, just GPS alone. He does mention that with OSMAND you get all of the maps for free unless you are on iOS and how important it is to have them, all good info. At no time does he say that he could have just down loaded the offline maps for Magic Earth and moreover that the rest of us can do so and can navigate with GPS only. MB has noted himself that he is not omnipotent and that people should test to make sure he's right. So let's go back to checking things, for instance what I said: “In the mean time,in Episode 234 MB hinted, without directly stating, some bad information.” After listening to the podcast again I can confirm that this is true. I also said: “MB's stated that he needed to go to OSMAND to be able to use offline maps. This suggests that Magic Earth does not support offline maps and this, for as long as I have been using it, is completely false.” What I said here is also true. His words suggested it and it is false, perhaps "incorrect" might have been less inflammatory but I think that difference would only matter if the fire were about to go off by itself anyway. What I definitely did not say is that MB is wrong or bad for liking OSMAND. That he or you like OSMAND better, or even at all, is fine and really not important to this conversation. That you like having the whole world at your finger tips is good, I do too, which is why I long ago downloaded maps for the world in Magic Earth for free. Interesting side note to having info like this is that yesterday, when looking for directions to my favorite burger place I learned that they may also have locations in Estonia and Germany. At the end of the day I’m glad you’re happy with OSMAND, the people behind it are really good folks and do important work in the world. If it’s not clear I like what they do too. The only thing I actually dislike is their destination search. That people buy subscriptions from them is even better because it helps to fund their work. The curious can visit them at https://osmand.net/ and for those for whom their solution works well, they are a good choice. For people like me, struggling to help their families adopt a more privacy friendly lifestyle, the ease of finding a place by searching for the name and quickly get my “hangry” wife to our favorite burger place without her becoming frustrated and more skeptical as I try to find an address based on a name, copy it into OSMAND, who would like to know about traffic congestion while on the way to defuse that “hangries”, Magic Earth is a great option and MB seems happy with their privacy stance. What is troubling is that you feel that I unfairly attacked MB. I did nothing unfair at all. I saw a place in his podcast that was incorrect and I provided the correction for others who have situations similar to mine. If anything, denying that information to others out of deference to him would be unfair, as would misrepresenting my statements.
  • Safety Focused Mapping App for Bike Riders
    reddit.com/r/BAbike | 2021-09-24
    Check out CyclOSM. I am guessing Pointz is using their data (if they're not, they should). You can use BRouter to navigate based on that data, and it can also export the GPX file. If your bike computer runs Android, you can install OsmAnd and BRouter on there to use these technologies.

  • LPT: If you’re traveling to a foreign country download a map of the area so you’ll always have GPS directions even without internet Go to google maps, search for where you’re going and then click download

  • Which app do you use to track your runs and how do you keep track of your progress there?
    reddit.com/r/running | 2021-09-07
    OpenTracks (https://opentracksapp.com/). Pair it with OsmAnd (https://osmand.net/). Used to put emphasis on improving PRs when running in the past, but now I no longer try to overexert and focus more on consistency.
