Navfree is a free GPS navigation application for our Android device, which has just been updated and improved a few hours ago, and is now compatible with more devices.
The maps it uses are available for free download from the Navfree Store. The map data is stored on your device so there is no need for a constant data connection while driving. Although there is a problem: can not move the maps to the SD card, which is expected to change in the next update.
It uses high-quality, open-source map data from OpenStreetMap that has been created and is continually improved by as many as 400,000 users around the world.
