I am a total Noob/Newbie here, heck I don't even have my first Android device yet,(already Ordered one). I was wondering if you guys can help me w/ this. I'm looking for both PAID & Free (if theres is any) Offline GPS software for the Nexus 7 2013.

Have a look at Nokia's HERE Maps https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....here.app.maps
Also MAPS.ME is highly regarded although doesn't yet have voice guidance https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ithme.maps.pro
All maps can be downloaded for offline use.

I've used several GPS navigation apps that work offline. IMO, CoPilot is hands down THE BEST! Once installed you can choose which maps you want to download saving space. For example I live in Alabama, USA so I chose to download the USA southeastern region map. It has tons of great features. It's free to use but to get the full version it requires purchasing. I paid only a few dollars for the full version and it is well worth every last penny!

HERE seems to be pretty good. One can also download specific states to save on space. NAVTEQ always made a good product.

Copilot or Sygic were the best ones last time I checked... Both are paid apps though... Worth the money though.

Copilot DOES have paid versions but it also has free one-region versions as well.

OsmAnd - used in Thailand, Taiwan and, more recently, through all the stops on a Baltic Cruise (Copenhagen, Berlin, St. Petersburg, Stockholm...). Works great to find where you are and minimal navigation. Based on OpenStreetMaps so always free and usually up to date. Make sure to download the regions prior to travel.
