How about google maps?

You can download offline versions and use them as you would online.

In search bar at top, click the 3 lines on the left

At bottom of the menu, click offline maps

Another vote here for Google Maps with downloaded maps.

Might also be worth getting a local data SIM for emergencies.

Nearly came a dropper to some Alpacas today. Stupid fckers just run out from anywhere!

Mapsme proving idiot proof so far. Though came within a few miles of running out of petrol, which would have been fun.

Also had my first Andean Bush dump earlier. Dropped the kecks and let gravity take over!

Your not carrying spare fuel??

What do you think :slight_smile:

Fuel shortages today so got 3 days to find some or I’m stuck in Arequipa…

Just Googled Peruvian problems and read all about their fuel shortages, food shortages, water pollution, soil erosion and deforestation problems. What you doing out there acclimatising for Brexit?

On a serious note no real need to worry Peru is a stable country. Traveler’s don’t need to worry about the government collapsing or the country turning towards civil war. Peru is a far safer place than Mays Britain :frowning:
