  • Not good

    By Photofixer03
    These maps are just that and not much good in an interactive world
  • Poor

    By Madcustomer jjjhk
    Better off buying a paper map at a gas station. Poor graphics, no detail when you zoom in. No way to see scale to judge distance. Not interactive.
  • Don't waste your $

    By christmaszorro
    This is ridiculous. Just a plan map that could have been downloaded for free. Not interactive or direction useable. What cost $10?
  • Disappointing

    By Pissy Pilot
    Very disappointed with the lack of detail. For a digital product I assumed it would show more than just major highways and two lane highways when zoomed in. Wasted 10 bucks.

    I like it but it has no distance page like it does in the paper version. Is this app going to be updated with the distance page ?
  • Outstanding

    A real map. Shines on my iPad Pro 12.9 and 9.7. Zoom for detail. Looks great. Offline usage. See the real deal. See in great true map detail. Real map legend.
  • GPS for Truckers

    By Anime Companion
    Trucks can't always go where cars can. I hope to love this app. If it is similar to the highly reviewed GPS system I'm good as Golden.
  • Just like the atlas

    By ScottUCLA
    If you like the printed version Rand McNally atlas, you might like this app--it's the same thing, on my iPad. I love the atlas, and I love this app. It is not for navigation--just maps.
  • Missed Opportunity

    By Tahvlin
    It's an electronic copy of the paper atlas, and for that, it is good, albeit expensive. Yes, there are small quality issues when you zoom in on the maps because you're just zooming in on an image file, but it's not that bad. However, it could have been so much more! With just a little more effort, they could have allowed you to click on a state from the US map, or one of the state bordering the current state you are looking at, and it could have jumped to that new state's map; instead, you need to go through the menu and select the next state you want to view. Rather than having to slide the map around to find and view the map insets, they could have allowed you to click on the area in question and jumped to the inset. Little touches like this could make it so much more user-friendly. If you want to get really fancy, they could have allowed filtering of the map contents. Let me just view interstates and rest areas, so I can see how far it might be to the next rest area without having to search through all the mileage/exit symbols and other detail. Or allow you to pick two points on a route and tell you the distance between those points. I'm not looking for a full-featured navigation app; Navigon and others have apps for those things. But a little extra effort could have really improved the app and made it worth more than $9.99. I drive cross country a fair amount, and like having my Rand McNally atlas to help plan and track those trips. This meets that very basic need, but left me wanting more.

    I just purchased this app. and I am very disappointed in the lack of detail. Primary roads are all that is shared. I could not recommend spending $9.99 for this app.. I wish I hadn't. There are far better apps. available.
