Great way to have special maps offline

I’ve been using this now for many years and it is still a mainstay. How many apps is that true of?

One of the drawbacks of nearly all the online maps on iOS devices is the absence of specialty maps. These are things like nature trail maps, campus maps, terminal maps, etc. where the usual suspects simply don't provide the desired information. This app let's you trivially find such maps near a location and download them for use offline (out of cell range or where you don't want to pay cell charges). Even better, many of the maps will show you your location with a 3G device's GPS. Better yet, if you have maps, you can add them to the collection available-no begging for a map necessary. The interface is pretty clean and straightforward. And you aren’t staring at fees per map either unlike the only real competitor in this niche.

The only drawback is that to add a map, you have to match the Google Mercator projection-not an issue for small areas but troublesome if you want to post something larger. The interface for georeferencing a map is clever though a tad challenging for some map styles.

Fantastic App!

This is a great app that just keeps getting better all the time. I am an avid hiker and lead a local hiking group. I use this app at least twice a week, and have used it to track my progress on a week long backpack in the Sierras. It is loaded with maps of every variety – not just trail maps. It contains airport maps, transit maps, bike routes, you name it. Last year in Hungary I discovered that it had the bus and transit systems for Budapest! Recently I needed a trail map for a local watershed that was not in their catalog. I made a request and they added the maps in a few days. I have found them very responsive. If you can find the map you want as a PDF on the web, they can add it for you, and most are GPS aware and will plot your location. Great app.

Great app for trails

I’ve used this Maplets for several years. It is my favorite trail app, but they also offer other maps such as zoos. The two things that I really like about it are:
1. I vaccfownload the maps and use them anytime. Sometimes I do need to download them again, so I will check before I go to hike some place to make sure I have the map on the app.
2. If I do have cell service when using the a map on the app, my location shows up on the map on the app.

Today I was hiking at a park that I had not been too for awhile, and the trails weren’t well marked. However, I was able to find where I was on the trail, and that gave me a lot of peace of mind on my hike.
