A Must Have
I absolutely love this app. My family enjoys hiking, biking, and off highway motorcycle riding which is where this app excels. For all you single track and trail riding motorcycle enthusiasts find your map by searching for either “MVUM” (multi vehicle use map) and/or “OHV” (off highway vehicle). No worries about cell service as this app utilized the GPS in your phone.
I also love the ability to plot photos and mark my trails which makes it a joy to share later with friends.
A feature I would like to see added would be the ability to share my recorded “track” via a simple text. The track would then be imported into other applicable maps and more importantly with friends who also have the app and corresponding map(s) so that they could follow the same track at a later date.
I’ve been using the app for approximately six months during a handful of off-road trips.
It’s adequate when you acquire a map which is originally done in PDF (such as from Tom Harrison, National Geographic, and some others). Many of the maps, however, are in fact sourced from compressed scans of printed maps (or low quality renderings) that are virtually unusable when zoomed in to ascertain area details. The store does not indicate which are native PDF and which are scans.
Many of the better available maps are available in hard copy for essentially the same price, though missing only the nice ability to use your device’s GPS to indicate and track your location. An issue of all mapping apps is that it’s sometimes nice to spread out a paper map to get the big picture as something is lost when you use an app such as this to zoom out making features so small that they’re unrecognizable and text unreadable.
Overall, if you needs maps, you’re much better off getting the much more capable Gaia app and suffering the subscription fee which you’ll quickly rack up in a handful of maps with this app versus unlimited maps in Gaia.
I think there’s a place for this app if you restrict yourself to Tom Harrison maps or are able to get lucky and find native PDF maps which are not available on Gaia, but all of the Nat Geo Trails illustrated and topographic maps are in Gaia ... and much easier to find and download.

Hello, thank you for your feedback. Could you please email email@example.com the names of the maps that you found unusable? We will get in touch with respective publishers and get it fixed.
Great map tool.
I have been using for a few years I like how reliable it is and you never have wonder if your map will work offline. I purchase a lot of forest service maps which can get expensive but I like knowing I am using an official map.
The black and white motor vehicle use maps are all free and work ok but I like to see topography so I choose to pay for the better maps. Keep up the good work. I’d wish it could be made easier to search for maps I want. Usually is search then click through the results trying to find right map.
