Great ad free app!

Overall I’ve been very pleased with the app. It’s been extremely useful when out hiking, as regions can be downloaded and used completely offline. No ads, everything works as it should, and I like the map style too! A few improvements I would really like to see on the future: - Being able to plan custom walking routes (incrementally point by point instead of adding stops). I might have just missed it but I can’t find a way of planning a walk in a full loop (same start and finish). The ability to choose from a range of base layer maps would be helpful. For a free app it’s amazing though!

** UPDATE
I must’ve missed the fact it has GPX support so thanks for letting me know!

Developer Response ,

GPX import already works. Open a GPX file with Organic Maps from any other app.

Other features are planned, they require more focus on the UX.

Free app - free maps & works offline

Not for profit FOSS (free open source software) written and maintained by the community that renders OSM - a free community created and maintained global map (cf Wikipedia - knowledge shared by the community). Needs no mobile network internet connection to function. It is ideal to avoid extortionate roaming data network charges when travelling abroad. It keeps working where there is no network coverage in remote areas when hiking. OSM shows routes like footpaths commercial operators ignore because they cannot “monetise” them from advertisers. App does not yet import gpx tracks but, with support, the community will keep making it better. Peerless free offline mapping on portable Apple devices.

Developer Response ,

GPX support is coming soon! Thank you very much for your donations and support!

Brilliant Navigation Software

By comparison to most other navigation and mapping software apps that are after your money this app makes a refreshing change! It doesn’t want your money, (but donations are welcome), and there are NO ADS! And it’s not tracking you from a marketing perspective. Fantastic. The maps are decent enough and give enough detail to cope with most situations.
I can only think of one improvement, if it could track me, (from a navigational perspective), and show me where I’ve been that would be really helpful. I can’t find that as a feature anywhere in the settings.

Developer Response ,

Thank you so much for your support! Track recording feature is already on our to-do list. As you mentioned, user donations would be greatly appreciated as they would be a huge help in allowing us to plan and implement all the features we have in mind.
