Publishers review : Turn your phone into a powerful navigation system with Polaris Navigation GPS, the world's #1 off road navigator for smart phones, and dare to go where there are no roads.
Imagine... What would it be like to be able to navigate any wilderness, waterway or city with only your phone and a view of the sky? What it would be like to create navigation destinations without the need of an internet connection and find them using only an arrow or offline maps.
