Which map app to use in korea?
Local always use Naver or Daum map to point you the way. Good for address search unless you can read korean.

Not sure Google map work well in korea. Need something handy on the smartphone.

i used naver and cross reference in google map.

google map has too little POI there, it is only good for major address. Naver, you can zoom into individual blocks.

you can use google translate, to get your phrases or terms into korean and search in Naver.

google maps is useless as there is way too little POIs,

Just come back from korea after 10 days trip. I would said that Naver map is better when u are in korea. Just input the telephone number in the seach function and will pin point on the map. Street view is good.
It also have an navigate tool from point A to Point B.
