Polaris GPS Navigation for Android

By DS Software Free

Developer's Description

High performance easy-to-use GPS for wherever your travels take you. No account setup or subscriptions required.

Turn your phone into a powerful GPS navigation system with Polaris Navigation GPS, the world's #1 all-purpose GPS, and dare to go where there are no roads.

Imagine... What would it be like to navigate any waterway or explore any wilderness or city using only your phone's GPS location abilities and a view of the sky? What it would be like to create navigation destinations without the need of an internet connection and find them using only an arrow or offline maps.

That is just a glimpse of the navigational power you will hold in your hands when you install Polaris Navigation GPS.

Used mostly as a hiking, off road, nautical and trail GPS app, Polaris is an excellent backup or replacement for your handheld dedicated GPS satellite navigation unit and will keep you oriented wherever your outdoor adventures take you!
