Best GPS app for NZ

Love MapToaster and use it daily as a moving map display for flight tracking in the helicopter. I’ve tried many other apps but this is the best. Simple to use but has all the functionality you want. It’s simple to create and export tracks and waypoints or import them. Best of all the display is uncluttered, clear and crisp. Running on the ipad it is so easy to relate it to the terrain around you. Support is great. They reply to emails and have integrated suggestions into the updates. Wish all developers were this good!!!

Great App. Awesome support

Love this App for the access it gives you to NZ Topo Maps for a very good price, the usability and the incredibly fast & helpful response to support questions.
I use the app a lot for when we go bush but also rather then Google / Apple maps for looking at features outside of the city.
Emailed the support with a question and I had an immediate a response and solution back in less then 5 mins. Great work team.

Great App, continues to improve

Intuitive and easy to use. The developer is responsive to suggestions for improvements and as a result the app just keeps getting better.

Updated for v2.0.0: great additions and tweaks. Keeps getting better.

Updated for version 3.0.0: the tracking function is really informative and very accurate in both location and distance. Nice work!
