Hi Zoltan,

Maybe there are so many because we all need something different each time

I like Qfield:

In their words:

QField is built from ground up to be touch oriented and easy to use
outside. and follows the following paradigm:

   - GPS centric
   - QGIS desktop compatible
   - Fully working when offline
   - Synchronization capabilities
   - Project preparation on desktop
   - Few and large buttons
   - Switchable use paradigm (Display, Digitizing, Measuring, Inspection,…)

Available features:

   - navigation (pan, zoom)
   - feature identification
   - attribute editing

A lighterweight alternative but not having image backdrops is MAPS.ME -

Byline: is the right choice!

You download the OSM data for your region on wifi and thereafter you don't
have any naggy need for networks.  You can add bookmarks and preload kml

Let us know!
