Default Custom maps for android phone

I found this app for Android phones it allows you to use any image as a map for the GPS on your phone. I haven't tried this in the field yet,I have it set up with an old aerial photo and it looks good

I did test it out, it works pretty good it shows your position on an aerial photo or old map etc. The only thing I wish I could change is the size of the marker that shows your location, it's a little bit too big but overall it works

Maprika does the same thing but also has a database of maps you can use
