  • GPS and Print

    Always know where you are. With this app you can download your maps to your iPhone and have a printed map from the app. I never worry about my iPhone dying because I have the printed maps. I print them a bit larger so I don’t have to use my glasses. The app lets you customize the size, choose between different maps and even overlay maps to get the look you want. I also use my iPhone to check my navigation skills while using the paper map. The app shows right where you are using its GPS on the trail. Never feel lost again.
  • Best Topo App I've used

    This app allows me to use my legacy iPhone as a fully featured GPS. The maps are update regularly and the developer is readily available to address any questions or issues. Being able to download and print any number of topo maps is worth the price of admission. This has replaced all other mapping software I previously used.
  • Not much to say beyond fantastic.

    I have been using this app for almost two years now and have used it in the USA from coast to coast Hawaii and even in Guam. It has never failed to get me information I need to make it to the trailhead and into the backcountry. There is sometimes a little learning curve to pick the right map city, suburbs or backcountry, but once I’ve made a decision I have never Ben disappointed. I have used this app on Three of New Zealand’s Great walks and several day hikes just inside and out of Aukland. And just recently used it just for grins at the Great Wall outside of Beijing, don’t need a map to follow the Great Wall. My only issue there was lack of gps coverage even with a bad elf plugged into my iPhone 7 Plus. Keep playing with the map because every time I do, I seem to find something else that's new. I’m a tried and true paper map hiker but love this app for the holes in paper map coverage or route changes in my wanderings. Can’t wait to try out the new US Natural Map.

    I paid for the upgrade and it’s nothing different than the free app. Waste of money and a rip off!
  • The Best There Is

    I have tried every other mapping program to help guide me in the Rocky Mountains and this one is the best. The subscription is completely worth it and the developer response is top notch. This app is especially handy for trail runners like myself that are trying to move quickly through the mountains. A lot of times I start on unfamiliar trails in the dark and have to go purely off this app. Easy to use, easy to share and absolutely love it!
  • Best app for hunting

    This is the best app for hunting..not only for topo maps but aerials too. I’ve had a few issues and whenever I’ve sent in an email to support, Stephen the developer always gets back to me promptly. I subscribe every year and it’s well worth it. I love the caching feature. I’ve cached all my hunting areas and can view maps even without service.
  • Great Free App!

    I’m not going to cover all the great features of the free version of this app because the hundreds of 5-Star reviews already have. I’m simply going to mention the two reasons my rating is only 4-stars: 1) No map legend. Either that or it is so hidden I can’t find it 2) A little disappointed with the map pass. After using the free version on a recent outdoor trip in Ontario, Canada (and very impressed) I decided to spend the money and pay for a map pass. I thought the more detailed maps would have additional information. So far however, the only difference I notice is the graphics are sharper when zoomed it. Yet in the free mode, even at low-res they were already totally usable. So not sure the pass was worth it for me. All in all a great free app I would highly recommend.
  • Passes don't sync

    Great app but passes don't sync between devices or if you have to delete the app and reinstall it.
  • Very old topo maps

    By ...Josh...
    This app is a great, but the topo maps that the database uses are strikingly old - sometimes over 30 years old - which limits the practical usefulness. The trails are also drawn pretty sketchily. This is a pleasant planning tool, but no substitute for hikers who need an up to date map showing the latest features and precise trail routes.
