2- Google Maps (iPhone – Android)
Google Maps has come along in leaps and bounds over the years, and now offers such a solid array of features that many people won’t need to look any further than the Android default.

However, if you want to use it offline, you’ll need to download the area of the map that you want to use in advance. If you do that, you obviously don’t get those traffic updates anymore though, as they require a connection. In August this year, Google Maps on Android got a few new offline features, like the ability to download multiple areas to your phone and select to use Google Maps in ‘WiFi-only’ mode when you have a spotty network connection.
