Dear Sir, I downloaded the free application to my android device (Galaxy Tab. The problem is that I live in Saudi Arabia but I can not find the maps to download as offline maps to my device.

Please inform me how to download offline maps for Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Thank you

If you tell us what app you're using, it is possible we could create the maps for you.

Please give a link to the app in the android market (or no-matter-where you downloaded it).

Please contact the vendor of the Android application that you have downloaded and ask them. There are various OSM applications for Android; all of them are supplied by independent third parties, not by OSM itself. We have no way of knowing which application you have downloaded.

As NavFree is a closed source program, there is no possibility to make your own map files. So you'll have to contact the developer: support AT navmii DOT com

If you want apps that offer about the same functionality (offline navigation), check out OsmAnd and ZANavi.

OsmAnd has more online services (next to the offline ones), and ZANavi has better performance in the routing engine.
