It's really not that difficult to at least reduce, if not altogether
eliminate, Google from your computing life. It's not all or nothing;
you can take steps to remove Google piecemeal from your life. I went
from regular Android to LineageOS, Google search to mostly DuckDuckGo
(although I still find I need Google for things that DDG can't find),
Gmail to GMX and Zoho for personal mail (although I still use Gmail for
some public list traffic, like this message ;).

I'm still working on OsmAnd+ for mobile navigation; the software, maps,
and directions are quite good, but the lack of a usable address-to-GPS
coordinates service for my area is still a dealbreaker.
