APK    Maps(Offline)

  1. TheGOAT is an offline map APP.
  2. The initial purpose of TheGOAT is for outdoor activities like hiking, climbing, cycling, etc.
  3. In worse situation especially outdoor without any mobile signal, TheGOAT may show you a light.
  4. No ads, no background service, no auto run, no special permission(s) required...
  5. Wish you the GOAT!

Pre-Requirement

  1. Android 6.0+.
  2. Location & External Storage permissions. The first time launch TheGOAT, you'll see two popup dialogs of these permissions authorization. And NOT seeing these dialogs, means the phone maker may chaged Android's Runtime Permission policy, for unknown purpose.
  3. Keep Location Service alive. You will see a popup dialog to disable battery optimization, the first time launch Record function. However it may not work yet, some phone makers may work around Android's Doze feature with their own, to illuminate the "long battery life". In this case, you need manually go to Settings->Battery->App Optimize(something like that), enable TheGOAT with "No Limit" and "Background Location".

Tips

  1. Offline maps should be unzipped, and put in /sdcard/TheGOAT/mapfiles.
