NAVFREE, THE WORLDS FIRST FREE CROWD-POWERED NAVIGATION SYSTEM!
Welcome to Navfree!
Navfree is a completely free navigation app with no additional monthly charges. It uses map data created by a community of thousands of users around the world. This means as the community grows so does the quality of the map data.
Already in countries like the UK and Germany map data quality is excellent, in other countries the map data is growing fast.
If you’d like to join the thousands of people contributing to the map data, just visit www.navfree.com and edit your local area.
Navfree features onboard maps that are stored directly onto your device so there is no need for a constant data connection whilst driving. It also allows you to browse maps any time anywhere without paying for data connections. Also, benefit from no additional roaming charges when abroad! Hoorah!
Navfree uses Crowd Powered data with the help of OpenStreetMap, a mapping system that was created by over 250,000+ users and as so the map data is free to use. OpenStreetMap could be described as the ‘Wikipedia’ of map data. As the data is reliant on its users, maps can occasionally be incorrect or not up to date, but with the use of Navfree’s inbuilt map report tool, maps can easily be edited by sending map errors!
