By combining location data (GPS) with the compass, Crowsflight provides mapless navigation in an intuitive, glance-at-it kind of way. No instructions, maps to read or paths to follow. It’s a lot like asking for directions on the street. A friendly finger pointing in the right direction is often all the help you need.

Crowsflight uses only GPS to navigate. You can search for destinations on the fly if you have a data connection. If you don’t, load up all your destinations before you set out for the day. Once you’ve loaded all the places you want to go, you don’t need data anymore. It’s perfect for wandering around foreign cities.
