There are lots of navigation apps (free or paid) on the market, but as far as Sueli Brodin, communications officer at the School of Governance, is concerned, Navfree stands out. “The tool is handy because you can use it offline. You load the maps before you leave. It also has the latest information – the maps are updated regularly – and completely free of charge, even the updates.”

Brodin uses the app in particular to find small back roads when on holiday. “During the Spring break, we were at a campsite some eighteen kilometres from Bastogne. Every day we took a different route into town. We made such beautiful trips that we have been using the app a lot since then. Much nicer than driving on boring main roads.”

The app also shows you the nearest petrol station, restaurant or pub. “Nice if you want to fill up cheaply in Luxembourg, or eat something along the way in Germany. There are loads of other features, but I don’t use them.”

One disadvantage: you have to have someone else in the car. “It is difficult to drive and consult the app at the same time. The easiest way is to trace the map with your finger while looking at the road.”
