App for find Trails from Le puy Valley to Cahors

I am trying to find a Mobile App that can help me find trails from Le puy Valley to Cahors. Would appreciate good advice and guidance.
 
The one from Galicia (the round) and the one from Castilla & Leon. Individually numbered and made by the same people that make the ones you see on your walk.
I used the mapping app... maps.me. And downloaded the GPS tracks from Gronze. I'm sure other mapping apps would work well. The GPS tracks were very accurate.

If it helps... I put these instructions together for my sisters last year (they're for iPhone). My sisters walked the last three two stages of Le Puy and first 15 stages or so of the Frances. So skip the steps about Spain and instead of loading “Pyrenees-Atlantiques” load the sections near the Le Puy and Cahors. (I can't recall what those are called offhand.)

I can't promise that these instructions aren't out of date, but they should be close.

I think you could use Google maps or some other map app as well.

Good luck.

Most of the various Camino apps have an online map if the route. I have been using Buen Camino - it’s simple and it works.
 
Most of the navigation apps that show trails use underlying maps based off of the Open Street Map (OSM) crowd sourced project. Most will also allow you to download these maps for offline use. The apps may display map features differently and have different ways to perform the same action though. Too many allow only one format to be used for displaying downloaded tracks (i.e., .gpx or the two keyhole markup language ones, .kml and .kmz).

You can examine various OSM maps for locations at https://openstreetmap.org
 
I downloaded the Wise Pilgrim app called 'Podiensis' but didn't end up needing it very often.

In case you're asking out of concern - I found the trail very well marked and easy to follow between Le Puy en Velay and Cahors.
 
Ideal pocket guides for during & after your Camino. Each weighs only 1.4 oz (40g)!

I am planning to walk the Camino from Le Puy next year and can see some of the days in the typical routes are very long between traditional stopping towns. I want to think about breaking up...
