The Best

This is an exceptional app, powerful, but with a clean, simple interface. I use it primarily for outdoor navigation and mapping of locations and property boundaries. You can input and edit the location of waypoints, organize them into groups, and assign different icons to different waypoint groups. You can input and edit routes, as well as create tracks on the fly. You can pre-load map tiles for offline use and import/export your data to and from other applications. Best of all you can configure your own map data sources from the many free mapservers available on the web, enabling easy switching between vector and raster based topographic maps, satellite imagery and street maps. Other apps have some of these features--this is the only app I have tried with the whole package. Five stars!

Great Coverage !

and Great Job ! The comprehensive integration and overall functionality goes well beyond my expectations. Better documentation could make it quicker to get used to though.

Great app!

Initially skeptical but it is the most flexible map app of the lot. Like the fact that you can download and upload waypoints and POI, and use google maps offline
