✩✩✩ NO HIDDEN COSTS – NO SUBSCRIPTIONS
The app itself as well as all in-app purchases have one thing in common: you pay once and forever. There are no timeframes to consider, no subscriptions to keep track off, no “trial” phases after which the app just stops working.

✩✩✩ ONLINE NAVIGATION OR OFFLINE UPGRADE – IT’S YOUR CHOICE
You can use this app online without limitations. Yet if you live in an area with spotty reception or want to use it abroad without being charged super-high roaming costs by your mobile carrier, you can purchase installable maps for most countries or entire continents as upgrades from within the app at very low prices.

Skobbler is the first navigation app to offer this “hybrid” capability. This gives you a choice on which maps are worth your device’s limited storage capacity. Install and de-install maps as you see fit at any time. You don’t have to clog your device with data that you’ll never use anyway.

✩✩✩ POWERED BY OPENSTREETMAP – THE MOST DYNAMIC DIGITAL MAP ON THE PLANET
skobbler uses the brilliant Open Source project OpenStreetMap as map source. Find ut what’s already possible based on the input of more than 600,000 mapping enthusiasts around the world. Especially in urban areas, the OpenStreetMap is already the most-detailed digital map.

In some other areas, the map might not be perfect yet though. The upside: you can help to change that by reporting map errors directly from within the app. Find out more about the OpenStreetMap on www.openstreetmap.org.

 

The good thing for you in any case: we provide you with regular map updates – at no extra cost!

✩✩✩ NAVIGATION FOR iPhone AND 3G-iPads
You can use this app on your iPhone as well as on any iPad with 3G (only these have GPS receivers).
