Android GPS apps

Looking for an app that will essentially do route plotting and following with maps preloaded on it and for Android.

Is there anything like this that we've settled on as a winner? Free or paid?

Check under the "laying down tracks" section. Lots of info there.

Thanks! I did not think about that at all before posting. Hoping this gets moved over there, but I'll scour that forum and see if I can find info.

check out OsmAnd, great for when you are out of data coverage areas. with the free version you can down load like 10 files (states) or many countries, I've had it for a number of years as a back up. its up to version 1.9 now. I run it on a Motorola Droid Maxx.

I was thinking it would be great to have one device, that my smart phone could do it all,, my conclusion was that if you really want to do GPS on a bike, buy a GPS, due to screen brightness, controls, and waterproofness. sometimes I do put my droid in my pocket and listen to music,,I have a route programmed in, and it just tells me where to turn, that works ok too

Careful, last time I suggested this I was banned for a week. Of course I was an idiot and posted a link :(

BTW: I have Navigon on Android and I like it. Even paid for it on my iPhone too.

I can vouch for Navigon as well. Simple and works well. If you like it you should buy it though, it's not that expensive.

Will Navigon allow you to make up your own multiple point routes and save them?

locus , osmand, a few others do to buy not nearly as well.

they will do it all completely offline, as in no signal needed.

if you're only riding street, try osmand. for off-road, locus. if you're not planning to loose signal (city driving) it's really hard to beat Google maps our waze.
