The OsmAnd Story
OsmAnd was created in 2009 by OsmAnd B.V., a company based in The Netherlands focused on open source software. The goal was to build a free and open source alternative to proprietary map and navigation apps.
The application uses OpenStreetMap vector maps which are distributed under the Open Database License (ODbL). This allows OsmAnd to provide worldwide offline maps for free without restrictions.
Some key milestones in OsmAnd’s development:
- 2010 – First Android application released.
- 2012 – iOS application released.
- 2016 – Introduced online maps and navigation.
- 2017 – Added support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
- 2021 – Launch of free cloud sync between devices.
Over the years, OsmAnd continued improving the app by adding new features while staying true to its open source roots. The application is now completely free, with a paid “Plus” version offering advanced functionality.

There are modified versions of OsmAnd+ known as “OsmAnd Mod” that offer additional functionality by unlocking paid features for free. However, using these requires circumventing OsmAnd’s licensing protections.
The OsmAnd team does not recommend or support these modded APKs. They often contain malware, violate OsmAnd’s copyright and go against the spirit of open source.
Purchasing an OsmAnd+ subscription or lifetime unlock is recommended to access advanced features ethically while supporting continued development.
OsmAnd+ brings the power of OpenStreetMap to your mobile device for free. With worldwide offline maps, privacy focused design and highly customizable navigation features for driving, cycling and walking – it is an compelling alternative to mainstream navigation apps.
