Smartphones are not the most obvious candidates for navigation off the beaten path but the power they harness gives interesting options to developers. After iNomad for the iPhone, here comes Locus for Google's Android.

Locus is real "Swiss Army knife" with access to many online maps (OSM, MyTopo, Google, etc...) with easy downloading for off-network use, on device route creation with a unique road/trail auto-routing option, access to Google MyMaps, a fully customizable interface, etc...The Pro version adds some extra features but the Free version is fully functional, give it a try and you can use the [TOPIC] Locus for Android - Maps, Routes and More topic in the "GPS on Google Android -" forums to discuss with the developer.

Updated October 12th, 2010 - Sometimes you set out on a walk or hike without a handheld GPS but rarely without a phone and if this phone happens to be an iPhone, there is software you need : iNomad to create a route on the fly and follow it in real time. Here is the scenario : you set out on a hike and as you walk you want to figure out how to best continue it, come back the same way or try to go for a loop...what will the distance be, the estimated travel time ? Seems easy enough but...

... this happened to me the other day and I thought I was covered with my many off-road apps but none could handle this. Head out to the iNomad turns your iPhone into an off-road GPS topic in the "GPS on the Apple iPhone and iPad -" forums for the fix!

Updated December 7th, 2005 - A new version of GPSdash2 for Windows Smartphones is available (website) and the good news is that you can now add maps for all-terrain GPS navigation. Although the Windows SP platform is 3 years old there had only been one "moving map" program so far that I was not able to get working. Let's hope GPSdash works as well as...

... MapView on the Nokia's. You can use this thread to discuss.

Updated 07/09/05 - Smartphone GPS remains limited for the most part to road use with software like TomTom Mobile or Route66 Mobile, but hopefully the arrival of the popular GPSdash will lead to the porting of more PocketPC GPS applications. No "moving map" for this version yet, but there is wealth of indicators and graphs available, more details here where you can also download a trial version....

Hard to believe it's been two years since we last talked about GPSdash, but Stefan certainly has been busy since 1.0 came out. Many new features have been added and v1.70... now offers useful min/max/avg readings for various counters, a convenient night mode display and GPSdash is still the only GPS program I know of that will let you synch your PocketPCs clock to the ultra precise GPS time!

Stefan wrote to announce the release of GPSDash 1.0, the "first stable release". You can discover the new features here...
...With this version, GPSDash becomes a shareware and registration costs $20.

GPSDash is a Free program that offers some neat functionalities with some nice "aviation-style" gauges for speed, distance, compass, altitude, etc...It also offers some position tracking using maps that can be imported from nearly any available raster-format (GIF, PNG, JPEG, BMP...)

You can get it here

From the author:
"GPSDash is a FREE program for the PocketPC platform which tries to help you with getting the most out of your (expensive) mobile GPS equipement. It is able to interpret data from receivers that do support the NMEA0183 protocol and presents the most significant data over a visual appealing dashboard. GPSDash also supports basic map relative position tracking which migth be useful to find your way back home :-).
