Maps Me is a fun new app that can take you to every corner of any country. Enjoy driving, walking and cycling anywhere in the world. Use it to download and contribute to free, fast, detailed and entirely offline maps, which offer precise navigation. Maps Me is trusted by over 70 million travellers worldwide. You won’t get lost on your journeys even if there is no internet access or Wi-Fi connection, since this application uses offline maps. Just download the map of the country where you are going or the specific area that you are going to explore into the app, and you can use it anytime you want. Maps are updated by millions of OpenStreetMap contributors daily. OSM is an open-source alternative to Google Maps and Apple Maps. It is an offline search, so GPS navigation along with optimised maps effectively save memory space. Incredibly, this application is available worldwide.

Offline maps

Explore points of interest

Searches can be filtered by category, for example, restaurants, cafes, tourist attractions, hotels, ATMs and public transport mode. Maps Me provides you with detailed information right down to every cornershop. It really is incredibly detailed, including directions to points of interest (POIs), hiking trails and places missing from other maps. Every corner of the world is within reach.

Navigate Easily

You can also create driving, walking and cycling routes on this application. Enjoy travelling by your preferred mode of transport, and estimate your travel and arrival time based on that mode using the app.

No need to worry about a new SIM card in a new country. Moreover, you can make a hotel reservation via Booking.com directly from the app, helping you to find a reasonable place to stay during your vacation.
