Not everyone is a big fan of Google. There are privacy concerns galore, especially with feature within Google Maps called "Your Timeline." With that feature, Google Maps can show you exactly where you were and when. It's a harmless feature - it promises not to invade your privacy or share the data with others, but it's still enough to creep some of us out.

So if you want a great alternative to Google maps, check out HERE Maps for both Apple and Android gadgets. HERE lets you navigate your way around any city in any country, whether you're in a car, on a bike, taking a walk, riding the subway, or have to catch a bus or trolley.

HERE has turn-by-turn voice navigation features as well as public transit maps and schedules. Even better, all of these maps are available for offline use so you won't need an Internet connection or have to use your data to figure out where to go.
