tower app

tower is Navigation application that is open source under the GPL-3.0-or-later license.
  • no Google Services dependencies, only necessary permissions (fine and coarse location, internet, foreground service)
  • connects to several online map providers
  • acceptable performance on slow GPRS-EDGE networks; may find coarse location by phone cell without GPS; may create waypoints with GPS without phone and internet connections
  • displays and saves cell info ( MCC, MNC, LAC, CID )
  • all waypoints are stored on a memory card and may be organized in any number of files (by regions etc.)
  • waypoint lists may be exported or imported in the GPX format, compatible with many navigators and software
  • finds location only by explicit user's command, so is very mild on the battery
  • capable of writing tracks (by means of a foreground service) and exporting them in the GPX format
  • tracks from other devices (GPX files) may be viewed along with your data
  • NOT implemented: map offline caching, routing, editing tracks, photo and video attachments, serving cold beer :)
  • for pure open distributions, that lack API keys and access to some services, there are options to enter user's own keys
