User reviews of Navit for Android
It's quite a good navigation tool. The best way to get maps, is download them with the mapextractor en than put them on your sdcard. The fact that the indexes are not very good makes it sometimes difficult to use.

It's good to show a map on the screen when running a dashcam in the background. It does have bugs making it not very useful for navigation, and also will crash the display if there's a map rendering error (e.g. NH Lakes Region) though bg service will stay running. Pseudo 3D rendering is horizontally squashed, but acceptable. Doesn't save last state. It is however light on resource consumption and will be rendering a map before most nav apps have even loaded a UI, and runs well on low spec devices that more bloated apps may not even start up on.
