Turns your iPhone/iPad into a powerful Outdoor, Off-Road or Marine GPS. If you’re looking for Topo Maps, 4x4 Maps or Marine Charts for Australia or New Zealand to work offline on your iPhone or iPad, this is the place to start.

This app provides free access to 1:250,000 scale topographic maps for Australia, New Zealand and many other free maps around the world. It is compatible with all maps published in the Memory-Map format since 2001 and works with maps you may already have on your PC/Mac or have downloaded from the Digital-Map-Store (1000s of worldwide maps available for download and use on most PC/Mac’s, Tablets and Phones) See the Memory-Map web site for details.

Once your choice of maps are downloaded to your iPhone/iPad, cellular network coverage or internet connection is not required for real time GPS navigation (as long as your device supports a GPS function).

The app is designed to be used standalone, but it can also used with the free PC or Mac app where maps and GPS data can be shared with your home computer for planning, printing and 3D visualisation. Then sync everything to your iPhone/iPad and enjoy navigating outdoors with high quality maps.

When you get home, you can transfer your tracklog and points of interest back onto your computer, to archive and to analyse your trip; speed, time, distance, elevation profile, etc.

Memory Map

I’ve been using this in the bush for a while and now I won’t leave home without it. The cost of access to topographic maps fir a state seems expensive, but only until you actually start buying paper maps, and they cost a lot more, get tatty and need to be replaced and can often be hard to find.

Memory Map solves all those problems and works with the GPS in the phone so it can locate me on the map I. The bush without the need for any phone or internet access.

If only it was easier to download selects maps.

Good and could be better

I have been using the app for 9 years, on pc and ipads. The maps and map layers are good, my low score is for the following; The file or layering system, it is hard to backup your folders, hard to select data for data management, hard to easily transfer data from layer to layer or export. You lose you file / folder structure when exporting your data if you are trying to move between devices. Generally I use other systems to manage files and only use MM to dump and see, this lesson was learnt after several changes between machines. The Ipad functionality limited. In the standard version I have to manipulate the data format and manage data in other programmes to get it into shape for memory maps to use. MM was my goto programmes but less so in the last 3 or 4 years. If MM could fix it folder / file management and allow streaming of online aerial imagery as well ... that would be great...

Lacks basic features, frustrating to use

This app is close to being good/great, but using it can be frustrating for 4wd navigation. I’ve used it a few years with VicMap 25,000 series maps and Hema on an iphone 7plus. This screen size requires constant panning to see tracks beyond 1-2km, and if you zoom out the app automatically changes map sets to the next scale up like Hema 150k, requiring you to manually force it back to high detail 25k state maps sets - annoying and unnecessary. Finding user defined marks is also more cumbersome than it needs to be and cant be done from the map view screen. The other annoyance is this app wont display track up!? To manage map licenses across devices you’ll need PC access and an account. Using it on an iPad improves usability, but annoying features still remain.
