The lightweight and compact Android App GpsTicker2 combines online and offline navigation for hikers and cyclists. Offline route calculation is possible for all federal states of Germany and many other regions. Online route calculation uses Google Navigation services, it can be done at home with available internet connection, saved routes and pois can be used outdoor without mobile network. GpsTicker2 makes use of the mapsforge offline vector maps. MapsForge functions are pretty memory hungry. Therefore “out of memory” exception occurs from time to time with android versions up to 2.3 or devices with very large screens (for example Galaxy Note with 1.280 x 720 pixels).
Maps can be easily downloaded with the integrated download manager. Usage of GpsTicker is limited, after 14 days the menus for pois and routes are no more available and need paid unlock.
GpsTicker2 is free of advertisement (AdMob).
