My compliments

What a great app! Detailed maps of trails excluded from other apps and maps. If one map doesn’t show the trail, another map will. The only caution all users need to be mindful of is some of the trails you find using this app, but not found elsewhere, can be near bushwhacking, or a b***-busting trail that will challenge even the most capable hikers. The distinction is the less arduous trails tend to be shown on all the maps, so with a just a modicum of caution one can keep things properly managed.

I love the trail planning capabilities. The snap-to-waypoint feature makes it exceptionally easy to plan a hike. Once the route is plotted, exact distance and elevation gains are provided, so a day’s hike can be planned that is as challenging as desired, or accommodating for the whole family.

Thank you also for not requiring syncing with a cloud account to get all the features to plan and record hikes. I for one am not interested in having my information “out there” for others to potentially highjack. Some apps require an account, which smacks of them monetizing user data. Thanks very much for not going that route!

Spend some time with it before you head out

I downloaded this for a trip to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone. I went ahead and paid for the detailed maps of those parks as separate purchases. Once I got to the area, I couldn’t tell if I was using those maps. I finally realized that I wasn’t. I kept trying to download them, but iffy WiFi and cell signal in the park made it fail. I finally sent a note to support and got a reply from the founder of this app. I really can’t fault his follow up. He talked me through the maps icon showing the map you are using having a green border. The downloads have to continue until they say Open. At home this is no big deal, but on low bandwidth that download can sit in full green for a while before showing Open. I kept closing it too soon. Anyway, resolution is very good on those purchased maps and if you download them ahead of time, it is easy to use. With family sharing, others in the family can also download them. A friend that came with us got the subscription. This meant she had to download each map section. Again, better to do that before you leave stable WiFi. Only after I got home did I try my iPad. Looks great and we could have used that for planning the next days hikes over dinner. Without GPS, wifi only iPad won’t show location or path. But it is a nice big, high quality map for planning. So the interface could be easier, but it works as advertised and the founder Mr. Johnson has my thanks for reaching out to help, personally.

All good but the map downloading

This is a great app with good selection of maps. My main reason for getting this app was for the offline map feature. I do a lot of exploring of logging roads, hiking trails, walking up streams and such so need maps viewable without cell signal. It works great...if you can get them to download. I was heading to the woods for a week and trying to grab the maps I wanted was one of the most frustrating things I have done in a while. The app crashes non-stop while trying to download. I zoomed way in to the smallest map quad to download and it crashes, tried one of the larger blocks of maps and it crashes. It will grab one map, maybe download 7 in a row then refuse any more and constantly crash. It closes the app and you have to start all ver finding the specific map to download. I have a newer iPhone and it’s current on updates, tons of free space and I’m on a fast WiFi connection. Doesn’t matter, crash, crash, crash!

Seriously annoying. Long ago I bought another app called Topo Maps and downloaded hundreds of maps with no issue. I stopped have it but that app has very outdated maps and not near the features of Topomaps+ but dang to this day I can download any number of maps I want without my blood pressure rising!! Fix the downloading so I can give 5 stars!!!

*edit* Hey, curious if the downloading update we did last summer fixed all of this for you? 
Thanks for letting us know! Definitely not the experience we want you to have! Would you contact us at We'd love to get you up and running and get this fixed for you. We also have a new beta with a whole new download process you can try if you want.
