Mobile Phone GPS apps
I've downloaded two paid-version navigation apps. One is Backcountry
Navigator and the other is GPS Essentials. Both are quite versatile
and easy to use. Both offer offline navigation, acting on satellites
just like a standard GPS unit (no internet needed)
Backcountry Navigator was 419 Baht (US$12) http://backcountrynavigator.com/
GPS Essentials (donation plugin) was 177.96 Baht (US$5) https://play.google.com/store/apps/details…
I used Backcountry Navigator on an actual route once a couple of days
ago. It was easy to use and highly accurate. I checked it against
Google Earth when I got home and it was actually more accurate on the
placement of the track as it related to the road I was on.
