Acastus Photon

An online address/POI search for navigation apps

A private, free and open source replacement for Google Maps and other geocoding services that relies on Photon, which you can run on your own server. It uses the Photon API to fetch results to your phone, allowing you to search for places in Acastus Photon. Then open and navigate to the result in your preferred navigation app, such as OsmAnd or Maps.me.

This is a fork of Acastus by DanielBarnett714, which used the Pelias API.
