    What do you use to navigate your way around? I'm trying to find something that will maybe integrate with Strava. Google maps is good but I don't know how to have that running as well as recording my route in Strava. Cheers

    Do you want turn by turn navigation? Strava premium offer this feature.
    Last year I used Locus map (with offline maps) for navigation in same time with Strava. I didn't need turn by turn navigation but Locus map has this feature. And better it is voice navigation.

    Really? Do you need to be connected with the interwebs to use that?

    I didn't really like locus maps so I'll use google for navigation and have strava running in the background to record my activity.

    Yes, unfortunately Strava don't offer offline maps. It is a BIG downside for, also, a very nice application.
    @jimortality It is a lot of offline maps navigators and you just test them and find what best suited you. And Google Maps it is ok. You have the option to store the map in chache and use it offline, and even navigation can be done offline. Just for fun, there is a Soviet Military Maps Free (Android) :cool:
