Although there is an application called Google Maps Mobile preinstalled on almost every new Android Mobile device, not every user is happy using services from such a “privacy spying” companies like Google. Google maps are still one of the top apps for mapping and navigation. In case your mobile doesn’t have the google maps app then you can still download the apk file from any APK download site.
Fortunately, there is an alternative mobile client called OpenMobileMaps used to access maps and other data on the online map server named OpenStreetMap.
Sure, it is not as good as GMM but it is sufficient for all basic actions like viewing maps in many zoom levels, locking position using GPS or GSM triangulation, searching addresses, calculating routes and a few others. An internet connection is required to get the maps, however, you can still download the map tiles with your PC and transfer it to your smartphone using JTileDownloader or get them directly on your mobile device using PDA TileManager so you can save your money and mobile bandwidth. You can get OpenMobileMaps for free in our freeware section now.
