I have been thinking of trying some off-road suitable GPS apps on my phone before it becomes absolutely necessary for me to own a proper standalone GPS device. The posts in the forum are quite old and scattered so I decided to gather various apps suggested by different members (both in the forum and the chat) under a single post for easy reference.
Ideal and perhaps/actually the correct thing to do is to get a standalone device but for people who are yet at the very early stages of their off-roading journey, I hope this list will be of some help. As pointed out by @presa, any app that has direct navigation / off-road option and the ability to download maps should be OK.
The below list is in no particular order and I have not tried/tested any of these apps so far.
