WinGo Maps is an unofficial Google Maps client
- On March 30, 2018
UWP Google Maps client now available in the Microsoft Store.
While we are waiting for the Progressive Web Apps (PWA) to fill the gaps in the Windows Store, there are some interesting apps build on the UWP platform which you may be worth checking out. WinGo Maps is an unofficial client for Google Maps made for all Windows 10 devices, including phones. It’s a paid app for $1.99, but a Trial version could be installed and tried to see whether WinGo Maps is good enough for you.
It has many of the features available for Android, although I could figure out how to start turn by turn voice navigation with lane guidance as listed in the store. According to the description, the app has an offline mode too, which allows you to download the use maps without an internet connection. Available also a transit schedules in thousands of cities around the world, real time updates to traffic conditions, and more.
WinGo Maps has a decent score of 4.1 out of 5, so it may be a good idea to try it on your smartphone. Personally, I uninstalled the app after a few days because I prefer Windows Maps.
Here are all the features:
Exploring on Google Maps (Road maps, Satellite and Hybrid including traffic data) -Offline map usage support -Show places info, ratings and more -Rate and review places you know -Getting directions in 3 different modes (Walking , Driving and Transit) -Voice Navigation -Bookmark and Secondary Live Tile support -Inking support (handwriting om map temporary) -Continuum support for Windows 10 Mobile -Cortana support (Commands : Bingo, Where am I? / Bingo, Get me directions to Somewhere / Bingo, Find somewhere on map) -Live Location on your Live Tile -Windows Maps Uri association override (Applications trying to show location on windows maps can show there on WinGo maps too)
