The fastest travelers are often the most flexible. They’re usually the first to find the fastest way to any place, both in terms of routes and the vehicle's use. Unfortunately, too many GPS apps can’t easily catch up with that kind of flexibility.

This route planning tool is one of the few that can. It not only charts different routes for driving, biking and walking, it easily allows users to set their starting and end points. It even allows you to add custom waypoints and bookmark to any location you want!

▲Tap the route icon at the top to start charting your way.

▲Mark it with waypoints as well as bookmarked locations or use the “Quick Route” function to quickly find the fastest way.

Both the map and the route planning features are available offline after just a few downloads. It also has the standard voice guidance system, which stays on course no matter what you’re using to get to a destination. Is the car suddenly blocked a parade? Switch the app over to a walking route. Want to remember where the bike was parked? Simply save your current location as another bookmark. There’s no need to memorize addresses or search for places when a quick route between two points is all a flexible traveler needs!
