Très utile pour la randonnée

Une app bien conçue pour les randonneurs. Télécharger une étape ou deux, puis suivre le chemin grâce au GPS de l'iPhone. J'en ai profité sur le GR 654 de Tonnerre à St.-Amand-Montrond. La vue satellite de Google Maps est un complément parfait.

Absolutely indispensable!

Ok, so obviously several reviews are in English and the lack of English documentation is an issue they should address eventually. But as it is--for me at least--things speak for themselves! It's maps, people: you zoom in and out and back and forth and voila, all of France is on your device. I'm currently one month into a year-long hiking journey in France and the $16 price has paid for itself dozens of times over (each IGN map, printed, is not only cumbersome and heavy, but quite expensive) already. The GR trails are extensively mapped and nearly *every* feature is named and displayed, from the Louvre to ramshackle outhouses in Provence. The trail blazes themselves are sometimes sparse and less than perfect; it is then that this app is worth its electronic weight in gold. DO YOUR RESEARCH to determine if it's the right app for you, and take advantage of the English section on their website's forum BEFORE you buy. Do that, and I promise you'll thank your lucky etoiles for this app every day.

Replaces stacks of expensive French roadmaps

This app, being free and utterly simple seems at first another insignificant free app. BUT in action traveling throughout several regions including around Paris this app is an amazing tool. With a 3G or MiFi based wifi connection and using the GPS-equipped iPad, one can access detailed roadmaps without unfolding the very large, expensive and diabolically folded road maps common sold in France in the front seat, cutting off the driver's view and generally causing nervousness in the midst of trying not to miss still ANOTHER exit or a haphazardly posted road sign. Instead you can quickly access your region, your route itself, and expand to incredible detail or get a regional view. Plus, you location is shown by a little icon that is animated and not too small but not too big to be distracting. Get this if you plan to travel in France by car and by the time you will be there will be micro SIMs you can pop in and you've got a mobile stack of French roadmaps for free (right now). Saved us at least twice from being lost or ending up on the wrong auto route, which in France is a costly (literally) mistake.
