I’ve just installed it and it’s now saying that there’s no maps installed or some required data is missing. Do you want to download maps now?
When I click download maps it wants me to pay, have I done something wrong or do I just go for the tab ‘Continue as free’.
Cheers from me.
The ad version has always been free so op what is the deal?

This too gets Posted every Year, and has also alwayyyys been free as well?.

So, what's your point ... lol
I’ve just tried to install it and that’s what’s happened on my Xiaomi Mi A2, as I said a box appeared with a ? in top left corner and MapFactor Navigator, (spelt like that, not typo!), and saying ‘There are no maps installed or some required data is missing. Do you want to download maps now?’
3 tabs below named...
Download maps, Cancel and Continue as free.
1st tab costs money, 2nd tab self explanatory and 3rd tab opens into 2 more tabs....
Same thing as before, no maps installed blah blah blah....
Cheers
Forget about this please, it’s what my friend would call operator error!

If there was such a thing as a manual you could well say it most definitely was a case of me not rtfm.

My apologies to all, I’d been pressing the same key umpteen times and returning to the same error many times, Doh!

I have been using this for years. Probably the best sat nav out there. I've tried Tom Tom and gave it away. Google maps is OK, I often have it running beside Navigator simply to check the road traffic conditions, but the voice nav is restrictive and the automatic 'night mode' it's a pain in the wotsit.
Navigator has offline mode (enter the place the night before on your search, then the next time you need to go there, signal or not, it had its location logged). This is particularly handy if you have low or no data. Very easy to save your favourite places, waypoints etc. Also had speed warnings (your speed) and speed camera warnings (audible). Plus the 'pre navigation' box helps your lane position, enabling you to get in the right lane early, and exit in the correct lane too.
36718888-WOOjo.jpgIn the screenshot above, the pre navigation box is bottom left. It tells me distance to next navigation (25 yards - I'm in a layby just off a roundabout). It tells me there is a roundabout, and I am going straight on. When the roundabout is the next navigation a number appears in the centre, telling me which exit I need. The display also has distance and time to destination, and my speed.

A brilliant app.

The red line on the screenshot suggests you drive ANTICLOCKWISE around the roundabout. Good luck with that!

Google maps also lets you download maps and use them off line. Not sure why you would use this app over Google Maps?

I believe the purple line is the line to be followed, red is the normal colour for that road type.

However, i too would like to know what the advantage of this is over Google Maps
I prefer waze. I know it's not offline but has a large user community which posts things I want to know about like damage potholes or police

Strange clicking on most recent dont look bad.
What is this like compared to Waze?
Waze for me - it has speed camera alerts and good maps. Using it via CarPlay or on iPhone when in Europe. I want to be online because of live traffic info.

I'm pretty sure the more recent 'version' of MapFactor GPS Navigation Maps has speed cameras bit to it too?.

Plus MapFactor GPS Navigation Maps is also allllll offline Maps (whereas Waze is not).
Though to be fair, both can however be 'updated' via any online connection out there. :-)

There are obviously certain pro's and con's between the two however ...

But to be honest, that comes down purely as to what you require to do with it in the first place, etc etc?. :-D
Another vote for Waze. Have been driving a lot over last week on roads I don't use too often and it alerted me to a mobile speed camera which I would have known nothing about with an offline map.

Pro's and con's (like I mentioned earlier?).

One is offline (not everyone has either a biggggg data plan?, and/or an unlimited data plan instead?).

And the other is online (for alllll those that are fortunate enough to be able to benefit from either of the above aforementioned, etc ... )

Though there's certain obvious 'benefits' to be had via an online 'live' one, there's also certain obvious benefits to be also had via offline 'methods' also?.

Irrespective of personal preferences, or whatever ...

Case in point, I prefer offline Maps, purely for the lack of 'cost factors' to be had via them (ever), whereas others like yourself (for different reasons, etc), may ofcourse have other reasons/ideas on the exact same, etc etc etc?.

It is what it is the way I see it? (but it's cool either way, hehehehe). :-)
How does this compare with HERE WeGo?

How does this compare with HERE WeGo?


I believe that HERE WeGo is online Maps?.

Whereas MapFactor GPS Navigation Maps is purely offline Maps only ...

Those are the 2 main difference's to be honest?.

The other difference's would be thing's like speed camera 'alerts', and such like ...

(But the majority of them thing's can be updated via Map's updates' via these App's anyway?).

They're both useful, and have both their pro's and con's basically?. :-)
Here maps or Here We Go as its called now (used to be Nokia Maps) can be used Offline if you have downloaded the Map Data, Free Map Data World Wide, and No Adds, been using it for years without issues, Here is Free and the one I would recommend, normally gets me outside the Door Number and even tells me what side of the Street the House is on, but then everyone has there favorites for different reasons.

Here WeGo can be used offline if you download the maps. Online just gives the extra benefit of traffic updates.
It also has speed warnings and speed camera warnings.
In app purchases
Waze beats them all
Navmii for me. Free and offline

May be the speed camera warnings which google map doesn't have!
