Locus Map Viewer For Online And Offline Use

The days of fumbling with a map while you’re driving are long over. Applications such as Google Maps and Waze have made getting from point A to point B easier, but what happens when you find yourself in a “no coverage” area? From my own recent experience I can tell you, it is no fun driving for 20 miles only to realize you are going the wrong way (and me with no backup map in place.)
XDA member MenionAsamm2 has designed the perfect replacement for the paper map: Locus map viewer. This Multi-lingual application can not only guide you to your intended destination, but can also help you locate your parked car, one of my favorite features.
Enjoy maps everywhere, without internet connection. Choose, Download and Use!
simply usable application showing Online maps and allowing to download them directly into Offline mode (raster maps only). Also support track recording, POI handling and many more useful functions.

* Online maps (OSM, Google, Yahoo, Bing, OVI/Nokia, … actually 39 types)
* Offline maps (SQLiteDB format, updated TrekBuddy TARed format)
* Direct download Online -> Offline (defined area – rectangle, path, state)

* Track recorder (GPS logger)
* POI handling => import, export, categories, guiding, …
* Complete support for offline Geocaching (import PocketQuery files)

* Parking service (BETA)
* Use Google Street View, Google Navigation
* Support for Bluetooth GPS
* Work with c:geo, GPS Status
* And many more…

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
