"Topo Maps+ is your best backcountry companion" -- TUAW (The Unofficial Apple Weblog)

Dream Less, Adventure More! Download Topo maps for offline use while deep in the backcountry.

Combine GPS with downloaded topo maps and you can view you current location on a topo map even when you are at that perfect hidden mountain lake that is days from the nearest the cell tower. Use the GPS and compass on your iPhone to see your current location and to align the map with the direction you are looking.

(GPS and compass work without an internet connection.)

View your offline maps and current location just by glancing down at your wrist. You no longer need to pull your iPhone out of your bag to check your position.

Easily download USGS, MapBox, NRCAN/GEOBC, Thunderforest, and Satellite maps so you can use the maps offline while deep in the backcountry.

Be prepared for that awesome journey through majestic mountains, down flower ladened valleys, and over craggy passes. Trace routes to find approximate distances and elevation profiles between locations. After tracing a route on a topo map you can view that route on the Satellite map.

Topo Maps+ Reviews

Just me thank you

I love this app  Just me thank you  5 star

This app is would be awesome if you made this for android devices as well.i would certainly buy it again for my android phone and my friends and family would too because they're all on androids not apple iPads/IPhones so you would get a lot of buyers there as well.


Been using for 3 years and love this app  Kevie1970  5 star

I used this app as a free service when it first came out years ago. Three years ago I paid for the plus version to get better resolution. This is an excellent value for a very reasonable price. I highly recommend!

Good  Jasim abood  5 star



Perfect planning tool  Wsouligny  5 star

Easy to navigate with good detail. Useful for pre-planning adventures.

Vegas Elvis

Outstanding, my best hiking app!  Vegas Elvis  5 star

Been using it for years and it just keeps getting better as it should, but beyond expectations. Couldn't ask for better customer help either.


Great app for hiking with no cell service  Hectocotylus  5 star

Works great, one thing I wish they included was your altitude, but for free I can't complain.


it didn't have my area of living  73behnam  1 star

it would b a great app,if you complete it....


Helped hiking Colorado  theKraken  5 star

Lost our way after red peak summit. Relied on this app to get us back on track.


Great UI, Maps Download is Impossible  R.C.K.1.2.3  2 star

Great app and user interface with some really cool features, but cannot download map segments for off-network use even when given hours on an 85 MBps wifi connection. Downloads about 1MB per hour and then eventually stalls. Very disappointed I signed up for premium features since the app is relatively useless if you intend to use in remote areas without cell service.


Great nav app!  7Trails  5 star

Easy to use and accurate all over the world.

Great map  ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜‹evil driver  5 star

Just love it. Good map for hunting or touring on new trails

Western Muly Hunter

Great for hunting  Western Muly Hunter  5 star

This app has been great out in the mountains here in Utah as it has many different types of maps. I can use the Topo map to find springs and look at steepness then switch over to a satellite map for finding my way around new places. All around an easy to use, great app.

Mammoth Lakes Concierge

Powerful tool but company got greedy  Mammoth Lakes Concierge  2 star

This was one of my favorite apps for the backcountry, but Glacierpeakstudios is now charging 5 times more ($50) for a year of high definition maps. Now looking into different options...


Clearly best as long as there is battery  millerphotorwf  5 star

I love the tools this provides, the detail, and the ability to improve my compass orienteering. This has become part of my systems.

Paragliding Pilot

Great tool for Vol Biv  Paragliding Pilot  5 star

The download capabilities are fantastic and the multiple types (topo, satellite...) are very handy. I like how you can plan a route on the fly and easily get elevation and distance. Awesome tool.


Awesome app!  Jsrumb  5 star

It is refreshing to have an app work as advertised! Cannot recommend enough! Have thrown all my maps away.....just get it!


Most used app  rimix  5 star

As an avid hiker, I don't know what I'd do without this app! Finally made my iPhone have value in the middle of the woods.


Great for hunting  Heydeerman  5 star

I have used this app and a very popular app for hunters through the last year. I found myself using this one more and more until it was a few months until I even opened the other app. Great for scouting both before entering the woods and while you're in. The recent update with the overlays is helpful.

From another reviewer

Good app for a backpacker  From another reviewer  5 star

Like the app. Good quality topography. Printable maps. Blaze your own trail

Out in the Rain

Best TOPO for free  Out in the Rain  5 star

I've used this in the Texas Hill Country, spot on. No issues.
