Whereas other mapping apps are primarily designed for cities and roads, displaying hills and mountains as flat and lifeless features, Maps 3D is packed with amazing features that brings the great outdoors to vibrant life with valleys, hills, mountains and footpaths displaying in full 3D so you’ll know your exact elevation.

With Maps 3D you’ll have the option to plan, record and share your routes, turning your iPhone into a fully-fledged GPS device so you can log key coordinates and elevations. You’ll also have offline access to worldwide 3D map data which limits the drain on the battery and means that you can pre-load a map to store when you don’t have a signal.


As an added bonus Maps 3D offers 3D terrain and trip planning, so you’ll never need to worry about getting lost. Towns, streets, mountain peaks and lakes are all searchable, with an accurate and precise map display based on NASA scans of the Earth’s surface combined with the outdoor map OSM (Open Street Map) and the Official USGS topo maps.


Trips can be loaded via iTunes, email, URL or Dropbox, and recorded tracks can be shared via email, Facebook and Twitter, great for showing your friends your latest outdoor accomplishments.


+++ Load a map in advance over WIFI or 4G before your trek, no internet connection needed thereafter
+++ Record your routes by GPS, all coordinates and exact elevations are logged
+++ Plan and evaluate routes directly in the 3D map view
+++ Search for towns, streets , mountain peaks, lakes - offline
+++ Distance traveled, current and average speeds all displayed for an ideal trek


Background GPS recording can significantly cut battery life

Need to know

I’m considering the Pro version, but I’ve found that not every app that costs money is ad-free. I don’t mind a charge, but I need to know that there are (and will be) no ads. Out of 1,200 apps, I have only one that has ads, and it’s somewhat of a necessity.

UPDATE: My question has been answered and I purchased the Premium version (and changed this to five stars). Thank you!

(I’m not sure why the developers’ response and my subsequent response don’t show up on the original review—maybe because I no longer have this version, but the Premium version? Or maybe there’s a delay? Hopefully, the original doesn’t appear as though it’s unanswered—by either of us.)

We have no ads in any of our apps.

Layers not showing, maps can be inaccurate

I like the concept and would like to test it out when I go hiking. But; I am wary to begin as it doesn’t show the body of water I live next to (a lake). If this is the case, what else is not showing?
Also when clicking the layers button, I could scroll through ‘something’ but there was no text to say what layer I was looking at.

Can you please get in touch, so we can figure out, what happens?
