Mapping off-line

by EstamE6 / January 11, 2016 11:58 AM PST

I have an Android tablet and would like to know the best app that will allow me to navigate off-line. I have wifi at home but need to download maps for the area I'm traveling. Any suggestions please.

There are tomes on this topic now but mostly you have to share which app you wanted to try.
