Offline map of the Greek island of Crete for tourist and business visitors. Download the app before you go or using your hotel's Wi-Fi and avoid expensive roaming charges. The map runs completely on your device; map display with pan and infinite zoom, routing, searching, everything. It does not use your data connection at all. Switch your phone function off if you want to!
No ads. Ready to go; no in-app purchases, no extra downloads.
Is it all in Greek? No. We have made the map in Greek and "English". Bilingual information from the original map data is used where available and, in a few cases, we have filled in with our automatic transliteration technology. Relax and enjoy!
The map is based on OpenStreetMap data, http://www.openstreetmap.org.
What is good in Crete: Villages, island roads, hiking paths, things to do and see appear very well mapped. Chania International Airport is mapped. Coverage of hotels, tourist eating places and some amenities like ATM machines are reasonably well covered.
What is not so good: Most roads lack names. Some amenities like doctors and banks are mostly missing. Very few buildings have been outlined. You can help improve it by becoming an OpenStreetMap contributor. We will publish app updates with new information.
Terrain is shown on the map, and can be turned on or off.
The app includes a search function and a gazetteer of commonly needed items like hotels, eating places, post offices and pharmacies as well as museums and other things to see and do.
Turn-by-turn navigation is available on devices with GPS.
Navigation will show you an indicative route and can be configured for car, bicycle or foot. The developers provide it without any guarantee that it is always correct. For example, it does not show turn restrictions - places where it is illegal to turn. Some rural roads may be suitable for four-wheel drive vehicles only and/or for people familiar with the area and terrain. Use with care and above all look out for and obey road signs.
System requirements: An memory card with at least 30 MB of free space. A GPS device is optional for route display but needed for turn-by-turn navigation and finding out where you are. GPS is useful but not required.
We hope it does not happen to you but: Like most small developers, we cannot test a wide variety of phones and tablets. If you have trouble running the application, do email us and we will try to help.
