SatNav V old phone

Just putting it out there for thoughts.
I have just updated my iPhone, so I now left with an old iPhone without a SIM. I was thinking of clearing all the extraneous crap off it getting a mount to fit to my bike and using as a SatNav.
What do you think is the best UK and European SatNav that I could install onto the old phone, one that works offline. What is your suggestions on the best App to install for this, a free App is good.

I use the SCENIC app on my iphone6. It has off-line downloadable maps.
I canít speak for UK map quality, but itís free and works well for me way out in the remote provinces of Philippines.

google maps has downloadable maps for offline use, but I don't know how routing works offline.

works the same as online, perhaps a little slower to calculate and without traffic of course.

And there's Works well, but not as well as a dedicated GPS. I've tried phones, and they're harder to see. There's also the weatherproof issue as well as keeping them powered up. Nothing insurmountable there, but they aren't designed to do that.
