We have moved from Topo GPS World to a new universal Topo GPS app.

Please search in the AppStore for 'Topo GPS' and download the universal Topo GPS app for free.

Topo GPS World can still be used, but will receive no more updates.

Makes from your iPhone/iPad a complete GPS device including a route planner based on the detailed and clear OpenStreetMap. The maps will be saved on the iPhone/iPad, so that Topo GPS can also be used without an internet connection.

Why should you buy an expensive GPS device if you can install Topo GPS on your iPhone/iPad? Topo GPS contains all functions of a regular GPS device for less money, has a much more detailed map, and is much more convenient to operate. The accuracy of the position determination is in favorable conditions about 5 m.

Ideal for walking, hiking, cycling, mountainbiking, sailing, horse-riding, geocaching, scouting, and other outdoor activities. Also suited for outdoor professionals.

If you are recording a route, the GPS will run in the background. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Rdzl, the company behind Topo GPS, does not obtain in any way the position of the user of Topo GPS. Rdzl does also not obtain the routes recorded by the user, and save the routes planned by the user, unless the route is shared with Topo GPS. We sell our product, not our user data.

Will not sync waypoint data on my other devices

I followed the instructions to use the iCloud to store my data and the waypoints will not transfer from my phone to my other devices

Need Help with topo

How do you turn the topo on ?
I see no menu item or link, or help subject that instructs on how to add topo to the map. As downloaded, this map is just a street map with NO topo.

No good

Don’t purchase this app. Map has very little detail. No Topo imagery (despite the name of the app), and developer is unresponsive.
