Ratings and Reviews
Professional Use, Applicable Settings, Top Tier Service
I have used this application across a wide range of use from Military use in terrain evaluation and movement. To personal hikes to get to prominent locations. I have continued to be impressed by the quality of service from the Topo Maps+ team. I also am thankful for the commitment to Service members and their families.
They have so many great features from hunting use to national parks I have used Topo Maps+ in states ranging from Washington, Utah, Alabama, Florida, Idaho, Montana, Colorado, Wyoming, and Arizona I have tested and used this application. It has yet to fail me in any standard from up to date maps, inputting various coordinate systems, and navigate the land from both my mobile platform and from my Mac with trails and roads easily viewable.
I have used other apps but none that have my loyalty and use like Topo Maps+.
I have used this application for over a year and depend on it weekly in career and personal use. It’s worth your consideration.

Thanks for the great review!
Spend some time with it before you head out
I downloaded this for a trip to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone. I went ahead and paid for the detailed maps of those parks as separate purchases. Once I got to the area, I couldn’t tell if I was using those maps. I finally realized that I wasn’t. I kept trying to download them, but iffy WiFi and cell signal in the park made it fail. I finally sent a note to support and got a reply from the founder of this app. I really can’t fault his follow up. He talked me through the maps icon showing the map you are using having a green border. The downloads have to continue until they say Open. At home this is no big deal, but on low bandwidth that download can sit in full green for a while before showing Open. I kept closing it too soon. Anyway, resolution is very good on those purchased maps and if you download them ahead of time, it is easy to use. With family sharing, others in the family can also download them. A friend that came with us got the subscription. This meant she had to download each map section. Again, better to do that before you leave stable WiFi. Only after I got home did I try my iPad. Looks great and we could have used that for planning the next days hikes over dinner. Without GPS, wifi only iPad won’t show location or path. But it is a nice big, high quality map for planning. So the interface could be easier, but it works as advertised and the founder Mr. Johnson has my thanks for reaching out to help, personally.
There are much better options for most
I know this app has its fans but, unless you need something specific that’s unique to this app, there are much better choices. Unless you pay fifty dollars a year, or more, you’re limited to poor low resolution apps and most features are disabled. There are much better options for less money like the free and open source GPX Tracker or the amazing WorkOutDoors that’s subscription free, just five bucks one time, and completely shames Topo Maps+ with its Apple Watch support. Or GPS Tracks for less than half the price with most of the same maps. Gaia and AllTrails also shame Topo Maps+ in many ways. Topo Maps+ has very crude and limited Apple Watch support. It also wants access to a ton of personal information, requires you to open an account with more personal information, and links and collects more personal data than many similar apps. If your main goal is tracking/navigating hikes, walks, runs, and similar on trails or roads, and you have an Apple Watch, just get WorkOutDoors and you’ll have maps of the world that just work, and more easily accessible data than you can imagine, without paying any subscription fees. If you’re planning to go off trail you might want something more but even still you can likely save some money with one of the less expensive options. I cancelled my paid trial and have uninstalled the app as it’s just not worth paying for and the free version is basically worthless.

I appreciate your thoughts, but please allow me to point out a few errors in your review. We don't actually require an account. That's only needed if you want to sync your mapping data between devices. You can use all features of the app completely anonymously, if you so choose. If you look at the respective App Store pages of the other apps you listed, you'll see that we collect far less personal information than ALL of the other apps that have filled out that section. It’s a FREE trial, not a paid trial.
