« How's it Work? »

Just select the cities, regions, or even whole countries you want to download, and it will be available for offline use, complete with information on thousands of POIs (Points of Interest), travel guides and Wikipedia articles.

To do this we utilize community driven open data from a number of amazing projects. We use some magik to compress and package it in a format optimized for mobile devices. Pocket Earth then renders its beautiful vector maps on your device using our OpenGL ES based MagikMap technology.

To learn more about Pocket Earth or the community driven open data sources that we use, please visit our website.

Don’t forget this:
1. Using the GPS features of this app can significantly affect battery life. Only leave GPS enabled when you need to use it. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Pocket Earth only uses GPS in the background for route navigation and gps track recording features.
2. This app uses data from the amazing community driven open mapping project called! Coverage detail may vary by region, please visit our website to check the map detail for your regions of interest.
3. Does not currently support all asian texts on the map (Chinese, Japanese, etc).

By far, the best GPS mapping app

Nine years ago I tried Pocket Earth for the first time and I was immediately hooked. It is very flexible with many features but with a simple clever user interface that I find is quick to get to whatever mode you need at the time.

Along with abundant features the developer is keen to support the app with frequent updates.

Some of the features I love>

- Most important, Stable, never crashes and is quick to respond to any zoom level even in my case with 10’s of thouands of waypoints
- Units = Kilometers, Statute miles and Nautical miles (Air/Sea use)
- Longitude/Latitude and Altitude displayed with crosshoirs on current location
- Store and search user notes
- Track walks and/or follow existing tracks
- Very capable Car Navigation with voice guidance, speed and Altitude
- Backup to dropbox. (user data stored in PE format and gpx)
- Maps are based on OpenStreetMaps which are very detailed down to 10m and with nearly every small track in neary every country.
- Topography (contours) option
- Unlimited number of tracks/Routes and Waypoints (up to the limit of available storage on device)
- Store waypoints in Groups. Examples I have are Club Walks, Favourite places, Highest Mountains, Largest lakes, Golf courses, sites of Family history. Limited only by imagination.

I have used this app for nearly 10 years and there is still not another mapping app that gets close to having all the features of this one.

Perfect-Map-App. In one broken word.

This has by far been one of the most valuable apps I’ve ever bought for travelling..

From downloading whole country maps (AND Wikipedia databases for that country) to my iPhone - to being able to place my own POI markers for personal favourites - to then being able to export all of these POI’s to a file I can then share with friends - to then have access to basically the whole of Wikipedia for any city I visit.. before finally arriving at the ability to filter map-generated Points Of Interest better than any Google Maps/Apple Maps client I’ve ever seen.. Making it so simple to find everything I need, from Hotels to places to eat and things to see..

There’s just so many reasons to buy the app. Perfect.

Best hiking gps app, period

I’ve tried and used a lot of hiking gps app. I used to be a big fan of MotionX-gps but the developer seems to have discontinued support as it is now longer in the app store. Since I wasnt really satisfied with the other hiking gps apps I already own, I looked around for a replacement. Then I found Pocket Earth Pro! Wow! Just as intuitive an interface as Motion X but more up to date detailed informative free maps. So I moved all my tracks and way points over and I am one happy camper! Literally! Everything is more up to date regarding iOS. Even streets are named. Wikipedia links to POIs. A fabulous upgrade for me.
Highly highly recommended! 5 stars!
