Review Yandex.Maps

Evgenii Kostrov
9.1Excellent
Yandex.Maps is a great application for navigating in 300 cities of Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Turkey, with which you can learn how to get to your destination in the shortest possible time. Unfortunately, the application doesn't yet provide an opportunity to pre-load maps to use them offline. This will surely affect the use of the application in roaming and even more abroad, where each kilobyte of information transmitted or received is worth its weight in gold.
However, the program will be very helpful for using in the home network. Especially, considering the fact that it needs the internet not only to download maps, but also to update the current information on the state of roads capacity and on the general situation on the roads. Each user of the program is one of those who corrects information about traffic jams. The program measures the speed of your movement and sends the relevant data to the server where it is analyzed and the information that appears on the screen in the form of a color scheme, is corrected.

Application's capabilities

In addition to the traffic jams, you can find out about road works, the location of traffic enforcement cameras or police ambushes, as well as about road traffic accidents. If desired, you can yourself place a mark of your current location that will warn other road users of the dangers or difficulties that will meet those that follow your way. The program excels not only in displaying the situation on the road, but also in laying the best routes. However, so far there is no voice guidance which means that you have to be distracted by your smartphone while driving.

Use of different types of maps

Yandex Maps are well-known by the fact that they also provide very detailed images of streets and houses. In addition, in large and medium-sized cities the buildings are numbered. Because of this, as well as of the built-in search function, it won't be difficult to find the exact address and navigate to this destination. In the settings, you can choose the type of a map: "Satellite", "Map", "Mixed" and "People". At that, the latter exactly will provide the most accurate information about the numbering of buildings and other stuff that may be useful.

Resume

Actually, the program uses a cache which theoretically should allow downloading the studied maps to the smartphone memory, so that you can use them off-line, but a smartphone tries to connect to the Internet even when re-looking through the already-studied sites. In general, this is a good navigator which will surely be helpful to metropolis residents. Hopefully, the developers will improve their child, and soon it will be possible to specifically download maps of cities of interest to you.
