- Save overlay configurations! When you get an overlay configuration just right, you can save it to reuse later. - You can now hide the route or trail title for individual routes and trails. If you have a custom route title something like "Day 1 of 3" you can hide that title on the map. Simple go to the settings for that route or trail and choose to hide the title on map. - Fixed an issue that could cause coordinates in a route or track to get out of order. - Fixed overlay data tags not filtering waypoints correctly for printed maps. - Fixed a few crashes.

  • It's really good

    By ADK Outsoorsman
    Seasoned hiker, GPS user, etc and have to say this is one good app. My wife plans to start picking off pieces of the Appalachian Trail so after watching the two instructional videos I sat down and an hour later the 1st hike was planned, maps printed, etc. Simple and intuitive.
  • Love it!

    By TVinAK
    Topo Maps + is my go-to portable mapping application!
  • My favorite app!!

    By WhitAJ1
    I love this app. It is clear, accurate, and easy to use. The customer service is great too. I had something I thought would be great on the app and only a month later it was added! Great for planning trips, tracking trips, and filing them. I only wish there was a one time purchase instead of a subscription. But, I still pay it.. Its that great. 👍🏾
  • This is perfect

    By Rich Haefele
    I use this almost every weekend on hundreds of peaks in Colorado every year where more often than not there are no trails.

  • Everything you need, and free!

    By Mark Egge
    I love this app. It has everything I need for my backcountry adventures, is easy to use, and completely free. I especially love the ruler tool for quickly estimating distances. Big ups to the app creator who has created this gem!
  • Quality, quality, quality!!!!

    By Jibster361
    I find that in a lot of life experiences I have had with my family in the last 5 years, quality was not a word frequently used. There are always hidden disclaimers or unknown fees when you go on a family trip. So when I decided that I was going to get my family back into the wilderness and enjoy the beauties of nature, I needed to make sure we had good gear. As a former Army Ranger I know firsthand how important it is to have gear that is functional and stands the test of time. Now, I'm old school, which means that I enjoy land navigation techniques that include nothing but a lensatic compass. I've tought my family this method because you always need a backup in the backcountry. I love useful tech (the key word being "useful"), so when choosing an app for land navigation I came across Topo Maps+. I have an unused iPhone4 that I installed it on which is in a waterproof case and has a solar charger to make sure it never fails. The ability to download regions to view offline itself makes this app 5 Star worthy. I'll end this rating by just saying this. I realized the full worth of Topo Maps+ when I had an issue. It was a simple bug that was crashing the app and I contacted tech support. Not only did the owner contact me personally, he continues to follow up with anyone using his product to ensure 100% satisfaction. That's "Knock your sock's off" customer service as far as I am concerned! Get off your butts and get in the woods! Sincerely, Jason Borseth
  • Great mapping app

    By Dañ
    My wife and I use this app regularly to plan upcoming hikes on our phones and iPad. It's also a great app for finding hidden gems in your local area ("Hmm, I never noticed that hill before..."). The app is actively developed and the developer seems to really care about how his customers are using the app. Several of my suggestions later became features. If you're looking for a great topo maps app, this is it.

  • Forget dedicated GPS's, just use this app!

    By Sailcats
    TopoMaps+ had changed my concept of what a GPS should be. I've used Garmin GPS units backpacking and boating for decades, but now having used TopoMaps+, I'll never buy another dedicated GPS unit. Save weight by using your phone in place of a camera and GPS. The mapping performance, screen response, etc is superb. I bought the yearly subscription to download high res maps and couldn't be happier.
