    "Mapfactor Navigator is a great navigation app and I tend to use it a lot more over Google Maps. It's great because it stores your offline maps for you and you can use in areas where you don't get the best signal/data. It has saved me many times when I have gotten lost and can't connect to a cell tower for data."

    "I used Offline Map Navigation for the few weeks that I was down South on vacation and I found it to be very handy. Not only is it very easy to use but it does not require internet access which was amazing. "

    "Offline maps are more essential than online maps. You may need a map most when you don't have a signal or Wi-Fi connection. Unfortunately, these maps are not great quality."

    "I decided to give Good Maps a try because I'd heard good things from other users. I understand if you're looking for a map of China, but, for me, this app wasn't really an improvement on other free apps. When I'm looking for offline map apps when traveling, Google Maps does just fine and it's free. Good Maps works and it's a good app, but I'm not sold."

    "This is a very nice alternative to the included map apps from Google or App. The addition of trails, pedestrian and bike paths is especially thoughtful for those of us who don't live in our cars. I will use this often!"
