Saved me from getting lost a few times already. I almost never write reviews but I made exception for this excellent app. Far cheaper and better than many alternative apps. Only complaint, as many other has noted, is how the app always takes you back to your current location when you click to download so you have to scroll all the way to find the area you were looking at. This is tricky sometimes because you might have been looking at the location of a particular landmark not easy to find on the map in the first place.
I love the integration with both USGS topo maps ("quads") as well as OpenStreetMap. This has really helped me find my way on local trails, some of which are quite new. I just wish they had a dedicated iPad version and apple watch support too. But still a five star app.
This used to be a great app. It no longer allows satellite view maps and is no longer useful for my uses. Too bad it was awesome once.
A how to video in ENGLISH would be nice
Great for hiking!! Many hiking trails intersect with other trails (that may or may not be shown on the map) so I find this app invaluable when hiking a trail for the first time. It takes away those nagging feelings that you may have taken a wrong turn. Hard to make mistakes when you've got the tracks for a trail imported to this app. However a big negative is how complex it is to import tracks. The instructions should be step-by-step and clearer to follow. Ideally there should be an easier way to import tracks but I guess once you get used to it, it's something you can live with.
I've used this pretty extensively to map hikes in and around Seoul. Almost always works well, although I've had it stop tracking twice - I THINK because I switched to too many other apps and Maps 3D was closed in the background. I now just remember to switch back to Maps 3D after using another app and all is fine. Perhaps that was even a bug that has been fixed in more recent versions, as it hasn't happened recently. At any rate, two things I'd really like: - the ability to show more than one recorded track on the map at a time. Maybe it is there, but I haven't found it. Like I said, there's a learning curve. - Apple Watch support. I'd really like to see my pace, distance, and altitude and be able to pause/resume recording without digging the phone out of my pocket.
Overall this is a great app for planning and tracking a hike. The ability to view location and tracks offline without a cell signal is fantastic and helped me a great deal during a 2 week backpacking trip to Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico, where the boys are responsible for navigating, but having a 3d map of the routes as a backup was so valuable. It helps me during a hike to check the terrain to see how much more uphill or downhill I've got to do before giving the knees a break. A couple of usability improvements would be greatly appreciated. 1) When downloading a map, it would be nice to have the default map area be the area currently being displayed, not the current location. The use case is this: I've downloaded a route or waypoint list and now want to download a map of the area. I choose "Add New Map", and the default region is my current location, and I have to pan and scroll over to where I hope the waypoints are. So annoying. 2) The process to import a .gpx file is cumbersome and not intuitive. Save to Dropbox, then Open the Maps 3D app, then go to Track List, then Import Tracks, then choose Open Dropbox, then Select the File, then Export > Open In ... and finally Maps 3D. It's a convoluted exercise that I wish was easier.
Good mapping software and views. Use this app every day for hunting. Thanks
I have been using this app many years for hiking in mostly state parks. The ability to view the terrain in 3d is awesome. I downloaded detailed offline maps, so I can use them even if there is no data signal. Before hiking, I plan a route and if I am hiking alone, I share a copy with my wife, so she knows where I am going. The distance and elevation information helps me know how difficult my planned hiking will be. During hiking, I record my track and see how far I have gone along my planned path. Later at home, I export my tracks, organize in a text file and and view them online using gpsvisualizer.com. I hike about 200km each year, and this app is an indespensible tool for me. You need to invest some time to understand how the app works, but it is worth it.
Used this app for a long time. Enjoyed it also. Why is it STILL buggy with screen "blackout" when panning/zooming with all the latest hardware/software?

Interface is a bit clunky / buggy, but once you figure it out it works fine, and gives access to all kinds of maps and features.
iPod Touch 5 9.2.1
I do a lot of working out: skiing, running, riding &c. This app takes 3D tracks of any activity with ease. Use it for sharing experiences, tracking your training or whatever. Another plus is that it does not have a lot of useless glitz like many competitors have. Recommend. I last used the app for a skiing training run this morning and will use it again tomorrow.
Freezes while downloading maps. Says map server busy or unable to download map for all the topo maps. Only mapquest & US Geo Maps work. I want a refund... Using Iphone 6
It is paradox: no cellular signal in the wilderness when I want to use this tool.
While I hesitate to say anything bad about Gaia as they have a cool team and seem like a nice group, I've been having nothing but trouble with their app recently. Especially crushes while trying to use things in off-line mode. I found this app recently and it's exactly what I've been looking for. It's actually kind of surprising how hard it is to find a good off-line topo map app. The user interface is exactly what I needed, downloading off-line map areas is simple, and the overall user experience is what I've been missing in every other app I've tried. To the developer, I hope you plan to update this more in the future. I would have easily paid more for this app. You might be under charging.
Free maps, even a selection available. Offline works great
I'm surprised to see an update as it's been so long from the last one. Love the app but I'll make one suggestion that could bump up my rating to 5 stars. I want to be able to switch between maps while choosing an area to save for offline use. If I want to go on a hike but the trail is far from any highway or road how can I tell which area to save other than by saving a very large piece of land in a general area I think my hike could be in? It would save a lot of trouble.
I use it every time I go hiking and it always performs perfectly! It helped me find the way in a lot of difficult situations.
My go to for keeping track of exploratory and fitness hikes. However, reading precise time points on the graphs is unfortunately not possible. Otherwise a great app.
