Here WeGo is a navigation app that brings offline maps to you for free. Apart from the turn-by-turn GPS navigation services, it offers public transit and traffic information.
Full offline functionalities
Navigation using smartphones is the norm nowadays, and most of them are highly accurate and easy to use. However, such software tends to operate using the Internet connection, which can cost a lot of money when used abroad.
HERE WeGo is one of the solutions to this issue, similar to MAPS.ME in the fact it offers turn-by-turn guides and information about various cities around the world without requiring a connection. Moreover, it features built-in Uber and taxi services.
Easy to use
HERE WeGo is straightforward with its interactive map with alternative routes, live traffic and voice guidance, and parking spots. It also boasts information on public transport for over 1300 cities worldwide, complete with ticket costs.
To use the app, all you need to do is find what you need among the selection of preset areas on it and download it. It has no limits on the number of downloadable maps.
With regards to limitations, the public transport info is available for most big cities, but you won't find it for any place you visit. The taxi service is enabled in most of the towns, which the app covers.
Free for all
You can use this app on Android and iOS devices without any in-app purchases. All you need to do is turn on the GPS on your device and run the map. It even works without a signal.
You'll need to keep running GPS in the background while using the app, which can influence your battery life.
An excellent assistant
While this app will take time to get used to if you're a big Google Maps or Apple Maps user, it's highly functional and efficient when it comes to navigation. It does lack some flexibility in map customisation, but all the extra information you get in a 100% free bundle is worth a download.
