I'm in Villavisiosa today and have been using the Buen Camino app with very good success since Irun. You purchase the del Norte maps and download the over WiFi.

Not perfect...but really close!!!

We used the Cicerone Guide to the Northern Caminos, but I see that Ivar (who runs this forum) has a few others for sale here

I use the Buen Camino app. Its offline maps work very well, plus they show points of interest describe alternate paths and show albergues.

Wikiloc also offers offline maps and as it alerts you if you drift off track it is an excellent guide as you do not have to keep looking at the phone!

Note: Maps.me can only use GPS files in the kmz or kml formats, not the gpx format. A similar app, OSMand, is the opposite. They both use the same data to display the base map though so you see the same roads, etc. Both can use downloaded base maps.

Although I use about 4 or 5 GPS apps I recommend Maps.me for use by GPS newbies as it has a simple interface.
