    GPS app to navigate outdoors (no 3G)

    Hi all,

    I have been searching for an app that would navigate me to a point that i know the actual coordinates of. Say i am hiking outdoors and there is no cell service. I know the coordinates of the point that i want to get to - Is there an app that would direct me there? What i am trying to accomplish sounds like a pretty basic thing for a gps, yet i could not find such an app yet.

    Note that i have used mytracks for my hiking trips and it works great. I could save waypoints etc. But it doesnt help me with the above question.

    Thanks in advance.

    There are some existing threads on this. I don't have links handy but I recall apps such as Backcountry Navigator and Oruxmaps being suggested in the past.

    I THINK the App called GPS Status by EclipSim does that. I have it but I've never checked in to that specific function. But I'm 90% sure it can.

    Maverick lets you enter coordinates and use the gps to navigate to that location.

    Maverick looks cool.... how does it give navigation if there isn't cell service though when only the lat long is entered?

    It wont show a map if there's no service. It will show distance to waypoint. Doesn't anyone remember what an original GPS was like?

    Maverick will show your location if you make sure to cache the maps for that area before you head out of cell service area. Plan ahead and you can have a base map.

    Crap no... I can't remember my name most of the times. Wish there was a way to download maps like mapdroid. Distance and direction to spot would work though during a canoe trip. Now to just waterproof my droid.
