Avenza Maps is a powerful offline map viewer with a connected in-app Map Store to find, purchase, and download professionally created maps for a wide variety of uses including hiking, cycling, camping, outdoor recreation, and adventure traveling. Free for recreational use, just pay for maps or download free ones. A subscription is required for professional users.

Our mobile maps don't need the internet to work. Going hiking? Find an official park or topographic map and navigate with only GPS to locate yourself even when not connected to WiFi or a cellular network. Record your tracks and add placemarks and photos to share with others. Plot your favourite points along hiking trails and precisely identify your own location using what3words

Génial comme app

Fonctionne à merveille

Too expensive and too limiting in free version

Three maps but even importing the second map brings up a warning that the map is inactive. First I had to register before I could even try the app. A demo map counts as one of the three. Importing a second map brought up the warning that it is inactive.

While PDF maps seem to hold some promise for easy adoption, Avenza’s approach makes it a poor choice for even recreational use.

It would be better to offer a month trial first.
