When you go to the new city and try to find new places then you always take the help of Google Maps. Google Maps is the most trusted map & navigation app for many users. In the ranking, it is far ahead than Here WeGo & Apple Maps due to its accurate data as well as offline mode & satellite view. Now imagine using Google Maps & navigation on Mi Band 3 & Band 4. Do you think it is possible to get the app on a tiny band screen? No, it is not possible to use such a heavy app on the band or any other trackers. It is because Mi Band 4 has only 16MB storage space to store the daily activities and comes with only 512KB RAM.
It doesn’t mean you can’t use it in any way. Well, some hardworking developers don’t think that way. Third-party app developers have created Navigator for Mi Band 3 & Band 4 to get the notifications from google maps on the fitness band. In this way, the app will send you information for turn-by-turn navigations. You have to set the destination in the app and then it will alert you in every direction. The Navigator for Mi Band 3 & Band 4 provides you many options to choose from.
Google Maps & Navigation on Mi Band 4
In the Play Store, it has rewarded with 4.2 ratings by users so you can use the app. The only issue is that it is not available for free. You have to pay $0.99 or Rs. 75 to purchase it, but it is worth every penny. We may see a free version of the app in the near future but for now, you can pay for it. Xiaomi has never cleared if it is going to introduce GPS on its next Mi Band 5, neither it has confirmed about NFC function outside China. If it happens in the upcoming band then there is a possibility to get GPS & navigation by Xiaomi.
