So I want to move to use OpenStreetMap for more of my mapping needs. This involves navigation, reverse geocoding and the likes. Does anyone have suggestions on (preferably open) services that provide this (web, desktop and mobile welcome!)


I've settled on to handle navigation (only foot traffic - I wonder what kind of work it'd take to add public transit info in there) and location discovery.

I'm going to lean on for public transit information tho.

@jalcine I can't really find it from their website, but what's the licensing on Transit?

@brainblasted ugh I'd have to find a way to block them, maybe via a VPN. But like it's really good and I don't know of any public transit options (at the moment)

@jalcine the app "Maps" from f-droid works much, much better than osmand!

@jalcine now playing: "Wake me up when we can have nice things" by Green Day 😸

@jalcine I recently discovered Transportr which is a FLOSS android app for public transport routing. It's working well for me so far.

@jalcine (aka 'Maps') also does subway routing in a limited number of cities

@rory peep the replies to that post for one regarding Maps

@rory I'll try this out as soon as it downloads to my phone. It doesn't seem to pull from F-Droid.
