Google Maps is the king of the online mapping industry, we know that. But that doesn't mean that the Google Maps app is the best navigation app for your Android phone. Let us admit that sometimes it gives us a headache on searching and finding a certain place.
There are plenty of other navigation apps on the Google Play, and most of them are just as speedy, accurate and reliable as Google Maps. Here are five other Android navigation apps you might want to check out on the store and download. Thank you to CNET for making a list for us.
Waze is the world's largest community-based traffic and navigation app. Join drivers in your area who share real-time traffic & road info to save time, gas money, and improve daily commuting for all.

You can also actively report accidents, police traps and other hazards you see on the road. Get road alerts along your route and find the cheapest gas prices around you shared by the community.
