What's the difference between Galileo and Google Maps offline?
Galileo is something about vector maps? Not sure what that is.

I need to look into this!
EDIT: Looks like they baked in those features to the new TripAdvisor app.
I'm currently packing my bags and am super excited to land in Zagreb this Wednesday. I do however still have a couple of questions.
Here is my initial post that I made here a few months ago, if you want to get a bit more information.
Based on the feedback back then and some more research and everything, I now have a pretty good day schedule.
I've booked almost all transportation and a lot of my activities.
The orange dates I still am not entirely sure on what I will do exactly. It sometimes is simply because I don't have information from other sources yet. But sometimes it is because I am not sure what is possible in the time that I've got.
The two red dates are a bit of 'please help!' moments.
Any apps that you can recommend that are good to have with me? I have TripAdvisor & CityMaps2Go that served me well during my previous holidays.
I've installed Croatia Travel Guide by Tripos, but didn't find this one that great.. At least from the few times that I looked at places to find stuff, it didn't give me much. It's also a huge app of about 1.5GB so.. I got rid of it!
Not sure yet what time my two friends will be available and what they would like to do. This means that, if they wouldn't want to explore the city a little bit with me, I would probably prefer to do this on this day. But if they do have time to explore, I can go for a hike in the afternoon to Medvedgrad have some dinner nearby and go back in the evening? If you have any other 'less than 10km / not too difficult' hike near Zagreb that is worth the time' Let me know.
I will go on a Kayaking tour in the Zrmanja river. I am currently emailing with the organisation to confirm the times. I assume that it's probably going to be roughly the whole day, so not sure if I can do anything else after?
I really really want to go on the bicycle tour in Krka. It's just that Raftrek, doesn't got enough people yet for this to go.. however, they do say on their website that for an extra 15% they can go if they don't get 4 people. Sooo.. I gladly pay this! :)
Not sure what is possible to do before I have to catch my bus to Split. Another hike? Anything nearby that I can visit?
I'll be honest, I didn't do much research yet for Hvar. I am happy that I managed to book the ferry! Please give me any advice here, I love nature, hikes, caves, relaxing.. Not so much a night life person, but maybe a country, folk, rock pub could be nice to spend an evening in?
Okay, HELP?! I can't really find a ferry that goes from Hvar to Vis? I found 'Route 9602' and can buy tickets in Split for this. Sadly.. it seems to be a bit late? 17:30 arrival.. I've booked an appartement in Komiza by my friends recommendation. I would also like to visit the blue cave.
I just don't see how I can get this possible with the limited that that I've got?
Any other options that you know of? I was thinking of perhaps asking a touring agency that offers day tours from Dubrovnik to Mostar to join the bus on the way back in the evening. Perhaps join their tour completely if the price is right.
Other options are blablacar or lifting my way back..?
If you have any other comments on my 'green' days. Feel free to let me know. I just mostly have questions about the above mentioned dates.
I will check reddit a good amount even when I am in Croatia. So don't worry to comment or tell me about something when I am already in your country!
I'll be able to use the 5GB of data that I have on my phone from the 15th of June at local costs. Which should be more than enough to get me through my holiday.
If I do happen to be around your town and you want to join me on any of my activities or perhaps dinner at your favourite place. I would love to, send me a PM and we can maybe figure something out. Especially dinners can get a bit lonely on my own, so I gladly have you with me. The drinks will be on me! :)
TripAdvisor is an app I've used to get reviews for things like museums, theme parks, and nature parks. (There are also listings for hotels, restaurants, and saunas that I've never consulted.) The reviews are written by people who have been to that location and offer both a star-rating and a written review -- popular places tend to get reviewed in English, Korean, and other languages while some of the more out-of-the-way spots might only have reviews in Korean. Some reviewers mention how kid-friendly sites are, others might comment on the quality of informational material (especially helpful when browsing museums), and many include how long it takes to experience the site. You can filter reviews by time of year, language, rating, and traveler type (family, couple, solo ...)

Naver Map is often what I use to get travel routes and time estimates for traveling. You can do searches by public transportation, car, taxi, and walking (IIRC). Has been helpful in figuring out good subway + bus combinations. Requires a knowledge of Korean to use well, though the icons make it possible to use without if you don't mind a little experimentation.

If only there was an app for that...
