dead reckoning (when neither data nor GPS available)

There are zero map apps that offer dead reckoning:

continue navigation when neither GPS nor data (mobile or wifi) are available. Useful also when insufficient GPS birds viewable.

+ compass
+ accelerometer
+ time

optionally

* orientation (for fixed mounts)

Given availability of map data those are enough to continue navigation:

. in tunnels
. in parking structures
. in box canyons

This is especially beneficial for those who do not have (no longer have) aGPS [assisted GPS] features.

But dead reckoning will benefit even those with aGPS.
