Google Locations is one way to do it if you want to allow your selected friends and family to see where you are in near real time. You'll need to have the Google+ app installed on your Android. Start the app and select Locations from the left hand menu. Of course, it requires an internet connection to update your position in real time, which is expensive ...

The best way to do that on a mobile device is by using WhatsApp to share your location. Whatsapp can be installed on any smart phone (even some feature phones comes with it), click the "send location" button and the other person will receive an accurate location and once click it will automatically open the navigation application. I personally always use ...

If you currently have a GPS device, you may be able to load OpenStreetMap based maps on it for free. eg this is possible for most models of Garmins. For getting OSM maps on a Garmin, easiest to use this website: Garmin.OpenStreetMap.nl. You can pick which country you want, and it will give you a file to download.

I would highly recommend getting a GPS over using mobile with data. From my experience, mobile signal is sketchy outside of the city. Also you don't have to worry about your phone battery etc. Try some companies that just rent GPS devices (on the cheap): http://www.hiregps.co.uk/ http://www.cheapsatnavhire.co.uk/index.php?pg=prices Regarding GPS from ...

Along with this question, you can get a Data Sim from O2 for GBP10 that offers 1GB of data. That should be enough for quite some time of navigation I would think, and it's cheaper than any of your listed alternatives. The additional advantage is that you will not have to pay for internet in the hotel or elsewhere to do your email or send some photos home. ...

I'm going to propose an alternative solution: install OsmAnd on your phone, then download the data for the countries you're visiting. It's completely free (although donations are welcome) and completely offline, so you don't need any mobile data at all. Some caveats: Download the data before you leave, the files are huge (hundreds of megs). OsmAnd's ...
