How much time does it take to create a GPS app?

As a rule of thumb, it takes anywhere from one  month to six months to create a GPS app. If you’re skilled at it, you could finish a smaller app in one to two weeks, a mid-sized app in two to three weeks, and a larger app in three to four weeks.

This timeline will depend on several factors, including the kind of app you’re making (native or hybrid) and the operating system it might run on (iOS vs. Android). You may also consider the team members’ development abilities, if necessary.

How much does it cost to develop a GPS App?

The cost of developing a GPS app depends on the type of app you need and how many features you want to add. The more complex the app, the higher the price tag. If you need to hire someone to develop your app, this will add to your costs.

An average GPS navigation app like Waze would cost $47,000 to build, depending on the application’s complexity. The most important factor is how much time you need to complete the project. The more time required, the more expensive it will be.

Can I create a GPS app by myself?

Creating your GPS app is more complex than it sounds. However, if you have a basic knowledge of coding and designing, you can make a solid GPS-tracking app. If you have an idea for an app, you can use GPS tracking software to make it real.

You can also develop a GPS map app using Google or Open Street Maps. If your program does not meet its free-use requirements, you may be required to pay a license fee. You can also hire someone with experience in making such apps and ask them to create one for you. This move may save a lot of time and effort on your part.
