I find Microsoft Streets and Trips easy.
I use Google Maps , just download as KML convert to GPX and save in google drive , then open it in phone
This is an excellent, free, easily uploading/downloading/sharing method, and it's routing capabilities are fantastic:
It reminds me very much of what the creator of DSM was doing before google screwed up the API's.
That being said, if you tinker just a -little- bit with OSMAND/OSMAND+, or ORUXMAPS (using BRouter for OFFLINE routing), you will find some very very nice feature sets.
If you have 5 minutes, give my tutorial video a shot and feel free to critique away afterwards. I'd love to share whatever resources we can, and prompt the AWESOME DEVELOPERS to features and shortcomings we all see.
This reply is a bit late but just found the thread when I was looking for mapping apps for Android.
Our Red Band Smartphone Quick Charge cable has the data pins shorted at the device end which saves having to screw around with your charger.
We had lots of complaints that our TAPP all-weather USB power ports couldn't keep up with high power drain of mapping apps but the problem was data pins not being shorted as you describe, not a power issue.
They work great on tablets that charge with USB as well.
The reason that I was looking for mapping apps is that the new Samsung Galaxy S5 that is due out next month (April) is rated to IP67 - waterproof to 1m for 30 minutes. This is perfect for touring and adventure riders. I've pre-ordered one (or at least I think I have) and can't wait to give it a try.
Of course I'll power it with one of our all-weather USB power ports and TAPP CAPPed Red Band cable for full all-weather power all the time.
Apologies for the shameless tooting of our horn but it should be a kick-ass set up.
BTW the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active is also rated at IP67 but not all providers offer it.
