You build your own routes in dotWalker, but, haven't used it too much, since 
think it can also interact somewhat with google maps, and while the other 
one am playing around with is called point finder (accessibility), if you 
just want to use google maps itself, while I don't find it's own interface 
of much use, an app called walky talky helps you find and invoke walking 
directions to places, and another one called place saver lets me save a 
current location, and then retrieve coordinates later on, etc. etc.

My primary issue with really getting going using android GPS is that in 
general, for example, you can't then lock the touch screen, so you'd need to 
literally hold it in your hand, instead of, like when using loadstone, just 
put phone in pocket, and listen to prompts etc. via earphones, but anyway - 
still looking into putting together my own form of a carrying case, from a 
form of pencil case to protect screen from being touched, etc.

Stay well
