NaviComputer – Offline mapping for all!

Whilst browsing XDA-Developers as you do of an evening, I discovered NaviComputer, which lets you download GPS maps on a desktop computer for offline viewing on a device.

It supports the following map sources

  • GoogleMaps
  • GoogleSattelite
  • GoogleTerrain
  • OpenStreetMap
  • OpenStreetOSM
  • YahooMap
  • YahooSatellite
  • VirtualEarthMap
  • VirtualEarthSatellite
  • VirtualEarthHybrid

As well as simply displaying the maps, it has a display such as the one to the right with current altitude, time distance and speed as well as a graph of altitude. This is all well presented, and fairly responsive.

It needs a VGA/WVGA device (the developer says if there is enough request, a (W)QVGA one can be made, and your device still needs GPS, though you don’t need an expensive data plan to be able to get Google maps anymore!

Grab it from here, and don’t forget to support the developer if you find it useful!
