Default Re: APPS!!! Look at OsmAnd open source maps for BB OS 10

I'll try those too, I like the BlackBerry Maps and I've been trying out Waze. But I must say I like OsmAnd -- yes, it may originally have been somehow brought in from Android, but it does seem to work well on my Z10 in the version I downloaded. I just like the "pedestrian" or walker's view and the trail maps -- it's great, because a lot of the trails around here don't have physical maps on posts, you know the wayside viewpoints that trails have usually, to show the way around, or something... some are on the trails, but a lot are left up to the guesswork of the walker, or a printed map... but in our area in Saanich on Vancouver Island, BC, all these details are on the free OsmAnd map on the BlackBerry Z10! Great GPS positioning service when not online, too... don't have to be using carrier WiFi... the BlackBerry GPS is a powerful one, great, thanks BB!
