    Default Gps coordinates navigation app for android vehicle unit

    Good day everyone

    I have recently gotten into off-roading and I am using a normal gps tom-tom start 20 and find it not possible to save off-road favorites as they are not on a marked road like Atlantis Dunes gps coordinates

    However my beloved jimny does have a android based vehicle navigational radio and was wondering if anyone could recommend a good app that I could use for off-road gps coordinates navigation, i don't need something with roads maybe something compass style with a arrow pointing me in right direction, but must be able to work offline

    Thanks in advance

    Try Backcountry Navigator, I have been using it for 6 years now.
    I found it while looking for something that I could use while out of cellphone reception which I am 80% of the time. You can use it online, or predownload an area you are going to visit to whatever level of detail you want.

    I even use it while traveling internationally as you can set it not to use any mobile data. Also it can be set to use the GPS only when you tell it to so it doesn't hog the battery.


    It can save your route, import Gpx, Kmz and other files and export to those.

    I downloaded the area in satellite view to the level that I could use it to decide whether to go left or right around a bush on the dune.

    Detail and accuracy was also good enough so I couldn't hide how many times a attempted this dune before I realized it was just never going to happen .
    The one line going through was when I slid down the dune, a hair raising experience.
