Disclaimer: I am in no way employed or paid by CityMaps2Go for this review. I had come across the app as a recommendation from a 3rd-party app and haven’t looked back since!
This app is my go-to travel GPS app and part of the reason I’m so confident roaming new cities on foot. This, so far, has been my favourite travel map to use on my phone. No data? No problem. You can download it in the App Store for free and it tracks your exact location in real time using GPS without eating up your data and incurring all those killer roaming charges. Trust me, I know the damage that roaming data can do!
My recommendation: download the city map(s) that you need before you leave, or while you’re connected to wi-fi at a restaurant or where you’re staying. Once the map is loaded, it can track your exact location. This is helpful both in a vehicle and on foot to ensure you’re traveling in the right direction – although getting lost is pretty fun sometimes, too.
I currently have it set in this screenshot to my current city (Winnipeg) to show you what it looks like My current location (not on the screen – as I’m at home currently) shows up as a blue dot that moves every time I do. Convenient, easy to follow, and free. Need I persuade you more?
