Google maps are really cool, however at times when travelling through mountains its is difficult to get data connection and we might end up direction less. For the same reason, it is good to have a mobile app with offline google maps for back up navigation.
With this app, you might not required the stand alone GPS for basic navigation.
This app would make you feel at home with google maps as it is based on OpenStreetMaps api by google. you can add view points, things around you or around destination, you can add multiple way points which is not possible with current google maps mobile version. It also has a 3D rendering mechanism.
