The Google Maps experience on Android is the best one out there out of all smartphone operating systems, thanks to the continuous updates which are being pushed towards making it better everyday by Google. However, voice based turn by turn navigation has been a missing feature so far.
AndNav2 is a free app which enables full turn-by-turn navigations with audio guidance and much more. There are no monthly costs involved or subscription fees, and the project works based on donations from users.
AndNav2 is based on Open Street Mapping, commonly referred to as OSM. Anybody can contribute to it and it is an open source project. More details here.
The App checks for GPS and prompts you to enable it, if disabled and you’re welcomed to the above screen. As you can see, there are huge buttons on the home interface and you can get started right there. The Hopital button searches for the nearest (within 31mi) hospital from your current location and guides you automatically to that.
Once you choose MAP on the menu and move around to navigate to the place you would wish to, there’s an options box which pops up asking for your preferences.
The Navigation is neat and provides real-time audio as you move along, making driving or walking really easy with the audio guiding you throughout.
AndNav2 is available only for the following countries at the moment and more will be supported very soon- United Kingdom, Germany, Ireland, France, Denmark, Spain, Switzerland, Italy & Austria.
AndNav2 is in public alpha and can be downloaded from here.
