Professional Use, Applicable Settings, Top Tier Service

I have used this application across a wide range of use from Military use in terrain evaluation and movement. To personal hikes to get to prominent locations. I have continued to be impressed by the quality of service from the Topo Maps+ team. I also am thankful for the commitment to Service members and their families.
They have so many great features from hunting use to national parks I have used Topo Maps+ in states ranging from Washington, Utah, Alabama, Florida, Idaho, Montana, Colorado, Wyoming, and Arizona I have tested and used this application. It has yet to fail me in any standard from up to date maps, inputting various coordinate systems, and navigate the land from both my mobile platform and from my Mac with trails and roads easily viewable.
I have used other apps but none that have my loyalty and use like Topo Maps+.
I have used this application for over a year and depend on it weekly in career and personal use. It’s worth your consideration.

Spend some time with it before you head out

I downloaded this for a trip to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone. I went ahead and paid for the detailed maps of those parks as separate purchases. Once I got to the area, I couldn’t tell if I was using those maps. I finally realized that I wasn’t. I kept trying to download them, but iffy WiFi and cell signal in the park made it fail. I finally sent a note to support and got a reply from the founder of this app. I really can’t fault his follow up. He talked me through the maps icon showing the map you are using having a green border. The downloads have to continue until they say Open. At home this is no big deal, but on low bandwidth that download can sit in full green for a while before showing Open. I kept closing it too soon. Anyway, resolution is very good on those purchased maps and if you download them ahead of time, it is easy to use. With family sharing, others in the family can also download them. A friend that came with us got the subscription. This meant she had to download each map section. Again, better to do that before you leave stable WiFi. Only after I got home did I try my iPad. Looks great and we could have used that for planning the next days hikes over dinner. Without GPS, wifi only iPad won’t show location or path. But it is a nice big, high quality map for planning. So the interface could be easier, but it works as advertised and the founder Mr. Johnson has my thanks for reaching out to help, personally.

All good but the map downloading

This is a great app with good selection of maps. My main reason for getting this app was for the offline map feature. I do a lot of exploring of logging roads, hiking trails, walking up streams and such so need maps viewable without cell signal. It works great...if you can get them to download. I was heading to the woods for a week and trying to grab the maps I wanted was one of the most frustrating things I have done in a while. The app crashes non-stop while trying to download. I zoomed way in to the smallest map quad to download and it crashes, tried one of the larger blocks of maps and it crashes. It will grab one map, maybe download 7 in a row then refuse any more and constantly crash. It closes the app and you have to start all ver finding the specific map to download. I have a newer iPhone and it’s current on updates, tons of free space and I’m on a fast WiFi connection. Doesn’t matter, crash, crash, crash!

Seriously annoying. Long ago I bought another app called Topo Maps and downloaded hundreds of maps with no issue. I stopped have it but that app has very outdated maps and not near the features of Topomaps+ but dang to this day I can download any number of maps I want without my blood pressure rising!! Fix the downloading so I can give 5 stars!!!
