Thanks for the good info! A good Android app that I like as well is US TOPO MAPS. It's in the Play store, and if you get the payed version it allows you to download, I think 40K, Topos of the entire US. The Topos are routable, will show ypur current location on the topo via ypur device's GPS, and are completely useable offline.

I can't remember, with US TOPO MAPS can you overlay a .gpx file?

I've been using Maps.me on my mobile when I need offline maps. It doesn't have some of the advanced features that other apps have, but that also means it is simpler to use.

 

Came in handy when traveling abroad and when riding in rural areas with no cell service.

 

I'm going to try a few of these on the list out as well.

I use Locus (http://www.locusmap.eu/) to offline navigate GPX tracks from sites and friends (it's similar to Orux or Osmand). I find it excellent both in features and UI.

 

For street turn by turn navigation I use either Sygic or Here.

 

Phone is a Note 4 (big screen and a pen which helps with the gloves).

I also use Locus Pro on Android.  Looking to mount my Nexus 7 on my RAM mount and try it out.  So far it works fine in my neighborhood.

Gpx file viewer has been amazing for me. Portions like import multiple files. Follow gps location. Waypoints. Route description. Elevation changes. All very usefully.
