It's fun to explore your local area and find out where gyms and pokestops are, but venturing further away without some sort of guidance seems silly. What PokemonGo maps or radars do you use for pokemon hunting further afield?
FastPokeMap kind of worked, but it's permanently shut down now. I don't know any others.
PokeTracker works pretty well for me (iPhone). https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/id1135947368
