« How's it Work? »
Just select the cities, regions, or even whole countries you want to download, and it will be available for offline use, complete with information on thousands of POIs (Points of Interest), travel guides and Wikipedia articles.
To do this we utilize community driven open data from a number of amazing projects. We use some magik to compress and package it in a format optimized for mobile devices. Pocket Earth then renders its beautiful vector maps on your device using our OpenGL ES based MagikMap technology.
To learn more about Pocket Earth or the community driven open data sources that we use, please visit our website.
Don’t forget this:
1. Using the GPS features of this app can significantly affect battery life. Only leave GPS enabled when you need to use it. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Pocket Earth only uses GPS in the background for route navigation and gps track recording features.
2. This app uses data from the amazing community driven open mapping project called openstreetmap.org! Coverage detail may vary by region, please visit our website to check the map detail for your regions of interest.
3. Does not currently support all asian texts on the map (Chinese, Japanese, etc).
Fixes issues with routing service.
Ratings and Reviews
Absolutely the most top-notch, accurate and user-friendly navigational app out there. I have travelled and backpacked through 65 countries and Pocket Earth has steered me around the world. From traversing the bustling souks of Marrakesh to wondering the colonial streets of Cartagena Pocket Earth was there for me. The app showed restaurants, roads, stairs, local passageways that would not have shown up in other competitor navigational apps.
Definitely better than Google Maps. The highly customizable nature of the app allows you to drop a pin for points of interest and also mark things down for later exploration. Two of the best features are the location tracker that tracks where you are without data. Pocket Earth is also able to calculate the distance between two points; allowing me to estimate how far a place of interest is.
The vast amount of WikiTravel stored on the app is amazing. Without using online data I am able to read about an upcoming country. The information on local bus and train routes makes this app THE BEST in the industry. I can go wherever I want and not be afraid of getting lost anymore. If you’re still contemplating, download it now. You won’t regret it.
Great Offline Maps
Great to use on older phones that no longer have cellular service. Load the app, download the maps and just use the internal gps with the map software. For $5 you can download the topographical maps, if you know how to read them. I’ve always just wanted mapping software that didn’t rely on having data available. Now I can just download while on WiFi and go. If you are running low on memory, you can just download the states you are in or visiting individually. From time to time I have noticed that maps are deleted when the app is updated. I did have to reload maps, but if I was already out and about I would just download the state and I can always restore my purchase of the topo maps and be on my way. Have fun, enjoy and get out and go explore.
Love it - and I'm a map geek
I LOVE this map. I first used it many years ago with my iTouch and now have the Pro version on my iPhone.
You can navigate with iPhone even if you have no cell coverage; the GPS still works. I always pre-download maps when I travel. I can then navigate off line, which saves data fees as well as battery.
The ability to switch which maps are downloaded is great, and very easy. I can for example download British Columbia topo maps for a backcountry trip; then later remove it before downloading Italy for my next trip. The level of detail and the number of "points of interest" is fantastic! I’ve even used it to navigate the Paris metro system!
I d like to see more icon choices for “favorites” I save. A way to indicate a trailhead, or a picture of a car come to mind.
Another update I’d like to see is that I’d like to be able to search for routes or tracks that are “Nearby”. The only way to find them currently is to search “Groups & Filters” by name date or user. Since I have dozens if not hundreds of Tracks and Routes, this is cumbersome. I usually don’t remember the name or date, and the user is always me, so I must scroll through the entire list.
