Best GPS Apps for Android Devices

There are hundreds of GPS applications availablre in the market for Android phone but here we compiled some best GPS apps for your Android Phones.

Google Maps Navigation

Google Maps with navigation is available for Android 1.6 and higher. This suite has proven itself and is currently the most popular GPS app for Android 1.6 users and above. It includes many features that no other GPS apps are able to provide, such as Street View and Satellite views.

Loopt- Android GPS Apps

Loopt users can share their location between carrier networks with fellow Loopt users on AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, Boost, MetroPCS and T-Mobile. The Android version offers all the core Loopt features including background location updating which enables users to receive alerts when a friend is nearby. Users can also switch between map modes for a satellite view of their friend map or to monitor traffic delays. Beyond sharing their location and status information with friends via phones, Loopt users can also easily share their information with popular Web services such as Facebook, MySpace and Twitter or personal blogs and Web sites.

Glympse – Android GPS App

Glympse uses the T-Mobile G1’s GPS to find your location, then lets you send a link with that location to a friend, family member, business associate and so on. When the intended recipient receives the link, they can click on it to open a dynamic map that displays your location in real-time. Rather than being yet another social network that you have to fill out a profile for, invite friends, and all the other usual hassles, Glympse requires no registration or login. And friends are temporary. You can choose to allow your location to be seen for a minimum of 15 minutes and a maximum of 4 hours which drastically simplifies the user privacy process.

Locale – Android GPS Apps

This is the clever kind of app that I love. It uses your location to adjust settings on the phone. It might seem a little confusing at first, but you can program your phone to perform certain functions when you get to predefined locations. For example – You can set the phone to remind you to charge your battery when you walk through your front door. You can set the phone to go switch to silent mode as soon as you arrive at the cinema. The list is endless and you can configure it to do exactly what you want. Shame this is only available for Android.

Places Directory- GPS Apps for Android

As the name implies, Places Directory allows you to browse nearby places in categories like Restaurants, Movie Theaters, Hotels and Banks. You’ll see distance and directions to the destination, and if you tap on the listing, we’ll show ratings and photos. You can also call the business or view its location on Google Maps.

CoPilot- Android GPS Apps

If you do a lot of traveling and often travel off your planned routes CoPilot is for you. CoPilot’s software works on maps that are downloaded to the SD card on the phone. The larger storage of a SD card allows you to fit the maps for all of North America on the phone. CoPilot also has a nice interface that is easy to use while driving. If you are used to a conventional GPS system like a Garmin, CoPilot is the closest you will come in terms on interface. I also prefer the voice alerts much better on CoPilot than on Google Maps. Copilot does everything you need in a GPS app, even thought it may not include some of the fancier features like Street View.

Wisepilot- Android GPS Apps

7 of The Best Android GPS Apps
WisePilot is another GPS app for Android. Honestly I feel this app doesn’t set itself apart from any of the other GPS apps enough to justify a $69.95 per year price tag. Yes, it does get you to point to point. It does have points of interest and voice alerts, but so do the free apps along with CoPilot. The one thing that it does do, is it lets you manage all your routes online. This can be a very nice feature if you are planning a trip. You can map out an entire trip from start to finish, including places to eat and the gas stations you will have to stop at, all on their website.

  • I’ve tried all of these apps out at some point or another. I find that the best mapping app for general use is Locus. This is not a social app, but a true mapping app. The free version is plenty good enough for most people, but the paid version makes it even better. The best navigation app to replace an in-car GPS navigation device for Android is CoPilot, which is now owned by Trimble.

  • This was exacly the information I was looking for. I can’t use google maps navigation because of all the data being sucked out of the limited plan. If I drive in a bad coverage area, then I will be SOL.

    Copilot is very cheap and stored locally on the phone. I did plan on buying the new garmin for 2013 garmin for $380, but this will be great alternative for a large Galaxy Note II 5.55″ screen.
