  • When you need to do more you need Topo

    By jdfana
    When you have to move 1300 meters of a trail up 57 meters guessing won't get it . I would have loved to have had this in the Army LRRP it would have saved time and lives .
  • I use it - it's easy- accurate- loss prevention .

    By MarcJWilliams
    I was taught map reading in the Marine Corp in the 60's They thought it was important. I used the mapping skills while In Country (Vietnam) and in the Pine Barrens of NJ. Now Doing 3 x's per week hikes of 4 - 6 miles in the barrens has been tracked with this App. It's outstanding. I will be using it in Maine. Get this U won't be sorry. I was born in 1945.
  • Great app!

    By Love canyoneering!
    I was very impressed with this app! I typically use a Garmin eTrex 20 when I go in the backcountry. I brought this app with me as well as the Garmin on my recent trip and it worked very well! In fact I preferred using this app because it is easier to see and you can see more with the larger screen. I just use the low res maps and that seems to be good enough, sometime I may pay for the hi res maps so I can see more detail. Being able to download maps makes this useful anywhere.
  • Awesome Backcountry Mapping App

    By Caleb-G
    I use Topo Maps+ on my iPhone for my backpacking trips into remote regions. The ablility to add tracks from Google Earth (KML) is awesome for adding routes that don't already exist in the OpenStreetMap trails layer. Also, the battery usage is much lighter than many of the alternatives, which is critical when you are in the backcountry.
  • Nice consideration, excellent timing

    By McDuff of Bellywash
    I had not been able to use my last years' subscription due to unexpected health issues that knocked the wind out of my sails for the entire year. I wrote the author, owner and founder of Topo Trails to renew my subscription and he automatically renewed me for FREE! and wrote a personal note to encourage me to get out and get back at it! I like being able to save the maps to my phone and use them when out in the back country, preview my hikes and save the routes I take. Also, the multiplicity of map formats available and bicycling route overlays make route finding a breeze! Thanks, Steven, for the hard work and great ap, a timely response to my questions and compassionate encouragement. It's nice to support such an passionate outdoors person and caring entrepreneur!

  • Not That Good

    By 'dude'
    A subscription for maps is ridiculous. The app is too slow on an iPhone 4S to be useful. You have to spend weeks of time downloading maps square by square instead of just downloading your whole state or region all at one time. There’s no POIs and roads blend into the contours so badly the map is useless when zoomed out. I’ll stick with a dedicated, waterproof GPS.
  • Very impressive.....

    By Lobo77_
    Deleted my other app once I started using this one. It's nice to be able to add way points, add notes, change the color of tracks, etc. (5 star). I very rarely give this rating to anything. This free app deserves it.
  • Great app!

    By Don1276
    I recently upgraded first to the Map Pass then to the Pro. I'm glad I upgraded to the Pro. You can choose from about 17 maps, though some are outside of the U.S. Most of the maps are high resolution quality. The maps have great detail. Many trails you see on this app you don't see on others. You can plan your hiking trip either by using "map trace" or pressing on one of the trails which then are highlighted and by using the crosshairs you can expand the trail and connect to other trails by just using the crosshairs. You have to practice with it but I'm getting the hang of it. It's like my first ever iPhone you just have to practice and play around with it. You can download your photos and use them as waypoints as well. Customer service is great. I got from help from Stephen who was the developer of this app. He said would either email me or would call me if I needed help. So I took him up on his offer and he called me up. How many people would do that. Great service! Happy I got this app.
  • Superb

    By Ad Fatigue
    Great feature set, easy to overlay open community routes and your own tracks and routes. Elevation recordings are pretty darn close to Garmin altimeter readings. You can also make favorite categories for routes and choose to only display those. The GPS + route of your choice + your favorite map provider and downloaded segments ensures you'll never get lost for your custom designed mountain biking or hiking off the beaten path adventures. Has truly saved me from taking wrong turns! Super easy to import GPX and KML exports from other services. The owner/developer is very receptive to feedback so email them with your features wish list.
  • Seems to do it all!

    By Gene Denver
    I just use this app with downloaded topos on a five-day backpack trip where there was no access to Internet at all. The app does everything that I can imagine being useful. My recommendation would be to spend the extra money for the high resolution maps – while the low resolution were readable, it would have been better to have had the high resolution. (A battery saving technique is to put your device in airplane mode.)
