Awesome! We really like this app because Google Maps allows you to save your favorite places and/or searches. Google Maps is our “go to” app for sure. This makes traveling super easy, especially when you want to find your way to grocery stores, ¬†shopping centers and post offices when you’re in a new area. Your saved searches also sync to your other devices. Google Maps has many helpful features such as printing maps and directions, determining distances between point A and B via car, public transit, biking and walking, and using searches for different category destinations (restaurants, shops, etc.). The icon selections are easily visible and user friendly. Scrolling throughout the maps is also easy and a quick way to find your way.

    And I’m using a navigation app Spyglass that supports different maps, depending on my current needs: google maps, apple maps, open street map and open cycle map. It saves an opened map area in a cache so you can use it later when offline. Besides, it has many useful features for those people that are not very good at orienting. The app shows your current position on the map, can save waypoints and locations, for example, your car or your hotel location. https://itunes.apple.com/app/spyglass/id332639548?mt=8&at=11lLc7&ct=c
