Ratings and Reviews

Robert from Oregon ,

The best app to use world wide.

I have been using this app for two years and continue to be amazed with the performance and improvements. Not only does it out perform other apps/gps models in the United States, I have had excellent results in the Swiss Alps, the highlands of Scotland, and areas of Northern Ireland.
More important to me is the support. When there has been an issue (as in my trip to Switzerland) I received an immediate response and remedy from the group in Spokane. The issue was minor, but the support terrific. One must realize with such a dynamic evolving program there might be minor issues. The response is always thorough and prompt. Many of the hikers with us in Europe were "wowed" by the performance. I'm looking forward to the new improved "map download" changes. My personal problem is that the program is capable of doing much more--I'm underutilizing it. I recommend the app to anyone leading hikes, going on hikes, or planning hikes.

A Must-Have for All Hikers!

I've been paid pro user of this app for over 2 years now and have used it on every single hike. Topomaps has worked without issue and has NEVER crashed on me. The interface is easy to use to plan and to navigate while on the trail, and It does a great job tracking my location. Their map overlays are great and provide so much detail.

When I've had some questions or minor issues, their technical support has been unbelievably responsive! The several times I've contacted them they've replied within a day or so and have resolved any issue I had.

I definitely recommend Topomaps

5 Stars This is the best Hiking App

This is the best hiking app. Easy to use, great tech support, uses very little battery energy. Easy to plan a route or just to check where your at. Very accurate for trails, it uses the path that others have hiked on when there are multiple paths/trails or old trails on maps. I have used this for 2 years in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.
