Is there such a thing as a Buen Camino App for an Android, to help with direction, enroute?

When it comes to navigation and especially navigation without being online and draining the battery I prefer Maps.me and Windy Maps. Maps.me requires you download the routes as an extra layer before starting out.
Windy Maps already has al the Caminos as far as I can see plus lots of extra information about I.e. accommodation, shopping possibilities for food, water taps etc. Both are very easy to use and won't drain the battery on your phone.
They will not have the little extras about the history of the sections etc but I can do without that.

If you look for Android phone from Google Play, the name there might be
Way of Saint James (Buen Camino).
Pesonally I use this program with off-line maps

Camino de Santiago Companion use off-line maps and does not need
internet connection. You load the maps in your phone.
If there is room in your phone memory, you can load also photos of Albergues, crossing points e.t.c.
It is payable, but cost is minimal.
My wife was reluctant to use it in the start, but found very handy during her 800 km CF.

The Buen Camino app also has GPS mapping that you can use offline. It has tonsof features. I like that it shows you how far you are to the next town at the top of the screen.
They have a pretty good tutorial video on how to use the app. It starts with an introduction in Spanish, then switches to the tutorial in English.

Yes. My husband used it on the Norte in May.

Or click on my link in post #4 above.

Also watch the Tutorial video in post #7. The first minute is an introduction on Spanish, then the rest is in English.
