There is a new option for mobile offline maps: Organic Maps. This app is based on the source code of maps.me, before the acquisition last year.

I gave the app a quick try and it already seems pretty good for a beta version. You can view maps and there’s even a navigation feature (which I wouldn’t trust too much though, I’d rather keep relying on Here WeGo).

What I couldn’t quite figure out yet is who is behind this new open source project and if there are really no commercial interests, because then it might be a project worth supporting in the long run.

What I like is that the app is also available on F-Droid without any trackers.
