Travelers Must Have – 6 GPS Apps for Android

GPS-techinsertGPS mobile phone-based apps may very well be superior to GPS for personal navigation devices. This is because the wireless data networks enable the phone-based apps to do much more complex tasks. With the GPS app on your phone, you’ll be able to find just about anything that you can’t otherwise find in searches.

Some of the best GSP for Android devices are listed below.



This is a very good app for the person who does a lot of traveling. The map data is downloaded to the SD card on your phone, which adds convenience and speed. Co-pilot has one of the best interfaces — very easy to use while driving — and also has easy to understand voice alerts.

Google Maps Navigation


Currently the most popular phone-based GPS system for Android, Google Maps Navigation works on Android 1.6 or higher, and offers features such as Street View and Satellite View.

Use Glympse to find your location via GPS and send it as a link to another person or group of people. No need to register or log in (unlike other social network sites), and you can choose to let your information be seen for 15 minutes up to 4 hours.



This is a very clever app that may seem confusing at first, but once you use it a few times you’ll be addicted. You use it to set up reminders for certain preset locales. So, for instance, you may preprogram your device to remind you to water the plants as soon as you get home, or to call a client when you get to work. Your reminder will alert you as you walk through the door to your house.  What a smart app!



Share locale and status information with friends using map mode or satellite view. Sharing can take place between other Loopt users on several different Networks: AT&T, Verizon, Boost, spring, T-Mobile, or MetroPCS. Share information easily with popular Web-based social networks (Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, etc.).

Wise Pilot


This one is a little pricey at $69.95, and especially in comparison to some of the free apps like Co-pilot, but it does have some nice features.  The feature that makes it stand out from the other apps is its route manager. You can map out your entire trip before you hit the road—including any stops you want to make for hotels, gas, or food.
