Official Monkey Business ,

Excellent app, but missing a few features.

I recently downloaded this app after hearing about it. Previously, I relied on applications such as Avenza and Gaia maps for offline navigation. However, they presented challenges: downloading additional offline areas incurred costs, and certain features were inaccessible. Organic Maps stands out due to its user-friendly interface, support, and extensive features.

Nevertheless, I have a few suggestions:

- It would be beneficial if users could press and hold on any location on the map to view its elevation. This would facilitate the determination of precise elevations anywhere on the map.

- Integration of additional map layers (such as Satellite, Shaded relief, etc.) and the ability to download them for offline use.

- Implementation of advanced navigation and GPS tools, including area calculation, coordinates derivation by offset (enabling users to select a location, specify distance and direction, and generate coordinates), GPX track recording, selection of various compass types (magnetic, true, grid), and dynamic routing.

This app is commendable, and the incorporation of these features would further enhance its utility.

Maps Don’t Get Better Than This

Organic Maps scared me. Using a new maps app, especially one that you’ve only heard about from strangers on the internet, is a very terrifying experience. Will it hold up?
I put it to the test in an hour long drive, from one larger city to a metro area. I made it! While Apple Maps has more bells and whistles during the routing experience, Organic Maps does the job. It makes up for it in many other areas, such as the fact that OpenStreetMap is an incredible project, and it’s great to put it to use; it allows us to download maps; and it’s far more beholden to its users than any closed-source app.

Developer Response ,

Very true, thank you for the review!

So far so good

More stable than OMS with better UI, using it in Venice which has lots of little backroads. I’ll update as I use it
Update: after the end of our trip in Italy, I can officially say it was quite useful. Was great anywhere there was no internet, even if you were on route to somewhere it could keep track. And I don’t mean one bar, I mean no internet I was able to use it hiking when USA cell providers international abilities were completely down.

TLDR. Amazing anywhere your primary map won’t work as long as the area is downloaded.

Thanks, enjoy your travels )
