*** UPDATE IS NOW LIVE!! PERFORMANCE ISSUES NOW FIXED. SORRY ABOUT THE LAST VERSION, OUR TESTING TEAM HAVE BEEN THRASHED ;)
NAVFREE The world`s first FREE `onboard` professional GPS navigation software, with turn-by-turn directions, voice guidance, auto-rerouting, live ‘Google’ Search, for the iPhone and iPad. The best GPS navigation software for the iPhone/iPad for FREE.
Navfree is powered by Navmii, a top selling premium navigation software application.
TOTALLY FREE!!!! No monthly fees or Annual charges. Maps are stored on your device. No data connection is required*
FREE MAP UPDATES!!! Receive free updates of the map data for life.
AN INDUSTRY FIRST – Navfree uses map data from OpenStreetMap(OSM), often referred to as the Wikipedia of maps, which allows us to provide you with full GPS navigation at no cost to you.
HOW CAN YOU OFFER THIS FOR FREE? OpenStreetMap is an open source mapping system that was created by over 250,000+ users and as such the map data is free to use. As the maps are open and rely on users creating and updating them there will be a chance that some of the maps are incorrect or missing all together, especially in more rural areas. The good news is you can add & improve the map yourself by getting involved at OpenStreetMap, using one of the freely available map editors or simply use Navfree`s inbuilt map report tool to send mapping errors!
With your help OpenStreetMap can be the most accurate street map in the world.
Maps are stored on the iPhone/iPad so no data connection is required for map browsing/routing & address search
*IMPORTANT NOTICE* The First version of Navfree requires a Data connection to search for Address`s. This allows you to have up to date access to the latest OpenStreetMap address database. Maps are stored on the iPhone so no data connection is required for map browsing & routing.
FEATURES: GOOGLE LOCAL / MICROSOFT BING SEARCH: • Now you can use Google or Microsoft Bing search directly from NavFree. Simply type in what you are looking for and see the result appear instantly on your map. 1-click and you will be navigating straight there.
LIVE MAP DISPLAY: • As easy as paper maps - Browse the map with multi-touch by dragging or scrolling the screen. Enables you to route instantly by holding down any point on the map display and clicking `route`. Great when you don`t have the full address of where you are trying to get to. • On-board maps. No data connection is required for downloading maps • Choice of guidance displays - Gives you the option of viewing the map in 2D, 3D or a safety screen.

DESTINATION SEARCH: NavFree makes it easy with an intuitive step-by-step address input method. • Exact address search, including City, Street and House details. • Route to an intersection or junction. • Find nearest POI (cafe, restaurants or museums) or use Google or Microsoft Bing Search to find millions of places near you and calculate route there.
The latest update has one new feature that is not reflected in the notes nor in the sample pages: it now has ads. I guess it is the way of the world... take something given to you at no cast (in this case OpenStreetMap) add a UI and sell it. What really bothers me is that it seems that the developer intentionally neglected to mention this new feature, both in words and in screen shots, that really disappoints. Moreover, an app that previously used no internet when in operation now is using up some of my bandwidth, making me question the name navFREE.
Time will tell if or how I use this app; wase is still truly free, I believe.
This is what you are looking for.
I now use this for all my navigation. Free offline maps, multiple states free. Beautiful interface. Fast route recalculation. I find it`s fastest/easiest to use its google find for an address. I have installed all free navigation software. This is the best.
Just tried this and really like it. Excellent voice guided, turn by turn directions. Liked it better than mapquest. It`s free too.
