You know that exciting moment when you clear customs in a new country, eager to wander the streets and get lost in exploration? Except…you don’t want to literally get lost.
But what do you do, with no data or wifi? Sure, you could try ducking into the next brasserie, café (or Starbucks, or McDonald’s) you see for free wifi, but it’s 2017–surely there’s a better way.
That’s where Avenza Maps (avenzamaps.com) comes in, a free app (for Android, iOS and Windows) that puts reliable offline maps at your fingertips.
With a vast catalogue of maps available to download from cartographers, map agencies and organizations like National Geographic, travelers can access entire maps of the cities they’re visiting directly to their devices to plan driving, walking or transit routes, find places, plot geotagged photos, record their GPS tracks and more.
With Avenza, travelers can lose themselves in new cultures and landscapes–without losing their way.
