Google Maps: From home through the world
Google does not only help in the search for a specific goal. Since Street View, the last corner of the world is just a click away. But you have no idea where to start the search? How about the most beautiful places in the world ? Or a trip to Machu Picchu , the red rock city of Petra , Kenya , Madagascar , the seabed , Loch Ness , along the Danube , Brazil , Mont Blanc or Buckingham Palace , Mount Everest or Amazon ? The possibilities are almost limitless.
Admittedly, a major weakness of Google's app is the use of the Internet. Although it is possible temporarily to deposit areas in the smartphone memory, however, this is not suitable for longer trips or spontaneous missions in emergency situations. So if you need a navigation that does not require a connection to the Internet, you should have an alternative. COMPUTER BILD has compiled 11 offline navigation apps for you.
