Offline GPS is an essential feature for any GPS and Navigation app on Android device. Let’s say you are going for a hike to some remote area which will not have any access to internet connection. At times like that, this feature can come in quite handy. So here is the best free offline GPS and navigation app for Android.

So, what GPS stands for? I know most of you already know the answer, which is for navigation. So let us discuss something more about GPS, and it’s usage.

GPS vs AGPS

Normal GPS works on the direct GPS signals without any need of internet connection. While Assisted GPS(AGPS) can only be used with working internet connection.

Who gives more accurate data, location and navigation information?

GPS gives more accurate data, location and navigation information. With a good GPS signal, it can locate you with 2-5 m accuracy which is awesome. While in Assisted GPS the accuracy can vary largely.

How to check whether your Android phone has inbuilt GPS receiver or only AGPS and how to enable it?

  1. Navigate to settings on your android device.
  2. Find Location Access menu in settings and tap it.
  3. You will find something like this.Offline GPS App For Android

Steps to install offline GPS and Navigation app for Android

You might be aware that for navigation we have an inbuilt app named Google Maps. But this app requires a working internet connection. In this app, you can also save some part of the map for offline use but it not good for frequent and dynamic use. So here I will introduce you an application which I like the most and which is also available for free.
