Product Description

OsmAnd (OSM Automated Navigation Directions) is a map and navigation application with access to the free, worldwide, and high-quality OpenStreetMap (OSM) data.

All the main functionalities work both online and offline (no internet needed).

Some of the main features:

2.0 out of 5 stars Getting Lost January 4, 2014
Verified Purchase
Maybe I have not had it long enough to learn well. It is very intense to use. It has a group of preloaded cities and will take you to intersections of certain streets, but I could not enter a specific address. Some of the towns where my children live were not listed and I tried but failed to find a place to enter them. I would enter them in the search bar, but nothing would come up when I hit search. I will play with it a few more weeks but will probably unload it.

3.0 out of 5 stars On the fence. October 8, 2013
By Kitties
Verified Purchase
I really want to like this program but I don't find it user friendly or terribly accurate. I keep coming back to it because it's not Google Maps or any of those other major brands, but comparing it to other map providers there are quite a few issues that make it to frustrating. I originally was going to type examples here but there's just too many and it was getting overly wordy. If you want to know my thoughts in detail, ask me.

5.0 out of 5 stars good alternative July 18, 2013
Verified Purchase
This is a pretty decent map program. I was searching for an alternative to google maps since I'm unable to put the google maps app on my phone. I put the free version on my phone which allows for 10 downloads. I put on 4 state maps and 2 voice packages to try it out. It seems to work really well but there will be a learning curve to understand the interface. Go to the OsmAnd home website read some "how-to's" and FAQS. Once I get the hang of it, I'll probably purchase the full product....seems reasonable and full of functionality.

Here in the US we primarily use house numbers to find building...this software does not know what these are. The interface was ok.

4.0 out of 5 stars Maps good, navigation needs improvement April 6, 2014
By Jorma V
Verified Purchase
It is fairly difficult to navigate with Osmand. Setting the route is cumbersome. Also I find the settings hard to grasp - there are so many of them and they are not always easy to find. For insatnce, how can one put the GPS tracking on and then save/send the GPX route.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dont bother its a complete waste of time. March 1, 2014
Verified Purchase
Well I really wanted to say some good things about this app but I ciuld only find one. The navigation screen is very detailed. Other than that don't waste your time. I just spent almost two hours trying to figure out how to work the very unfriendly and useless interface. You cant enter the address number of you destination. I tried to look up Costco and it directed me to one thats past three closer locations. I tried to look up a very well established steak house and it did not exist.
