Ratings and Reviews
This app has potential, but the description and screenshots are not accurate. There are no topographic maps that I could find.
Also, there is no way to reset the view to north facing up, and there is no way to see which direction north is on the map, so if you rotate the map, the only way to get north up again is to restart the app.
Poor at best
Mapquest maps do not load. No ability to get offline maps. Maps available are limited. No ability to access other map sources. Don't waste money on this.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
