Turn-by-turn navigation with online or offline map for the Playbook - Osmand.

It is free in the AppWorld.

 

Difficult to connect and find Osmand when you are looking for a turn-by-turn navigation app in the AppWorld search.

 

OSM stands for Open Source Map.

 

In the online map options, one is Google Map.

 

Download offline map from around the world. With offline routing, you will be able to drive or walk around in a foreign place where you don't have a wifi cnnection!!!

Re: Turn-by-turn navigation with online or offline map for the Playbook - Osmand.

Osmand is a map/navigation app fits for your offline use.

 

You can download 16 free maps from around the world. It has offline routing. All you need is GPS.

This app is extensive and inclusive, got lots of knobs and switches, hence its versatility. However,  be prepared to take some time to learn.

 

Enjoy.
