Tried Maps.Me. It looks it has very limited editing capacity, but that should work as of now! :)

Maps me is good, but they sacrifice a lot of data to save space in your phone, and I have some difficulties to lock the GPS position while driving. Magic Earth is good, but take a lot of space.

OSMand+ is perfect with a lot of advance features.

I'm also a fan of Osmand.

I finally limit my edits to POI and street naming esp. in Vespucci. Even when using a tab, there's no satisfactory way to draw roads, geometry etc.

Osmand is good. Let me go to my native and map some places. @NunoCaldeira - what is different between Osmand and Osmand+?

@kartik https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OsmAnd It is available in both a free and paid version, the latter unlocks the download limit for offline maps, and provides access to Wikipedia POIs and their description from within the app.

theres nice plugins like mapillary and others like hillshade, countours and so on.

OsmAnd is an open source software.

There's [Osmand~(https://f-droid.org/packages/net.osmand.plus/), that is community-maintained and hosted at F-Droid. It has all the features of Osmand+, and without the limitations of the regular version found in the Play store (i.e. download limits, absence of Wikipedia support, etc.)

The only slight disadvantage with this version, is that it takes a few days (or weeks) to get the new features found in the + version. OsmAnd is a very mature app, and this isn't a big deal for many people.

P.S. I support the development of Osmand by paying for Osmand+ , but I use and promote the OsmAnd~ version, and I recommend you do the same.
