Coverage: this app makes available more than 70, 000 maps covering the United States, including Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Canada.

The Maps: This app uses high-quality scans of the traditional USGS and NRCan topographic maps which have been the definitive resource for hikers and other backcountry users for many years. You can make the terrain stand out with hill shading, using simulated sunlight from the direction of your choice. This app does not use the new "US Topo" maps because they do not show hiking trails and lack other details: please see the web site for more details.

Downloading: US maps are around 8 MB in size and download in a few seconds on a typical home broadband connection. Canadian maps are larger. Both cellular data and WiFi can be used, though WiFi is likely to be more reliable in most cases.

We have many ideas for additional features to add to future versions of this app; if you have ideas or other questions or comments, contact details can be found on the website, http://topomapsapp.com/. The website also has more screenshots and other information.

Awesome app!

I am an avid outdoorsman and an active army SSG. I am an expert in land navigation, and this app is a great asset to my tool kit! I am amazed by the superior quality of this program compared with it's low price. Its easy to use and encompasses all the features needed to do a vivid map reconnaissance of terrain, plan routes, plot points, and navigate to them. The downloadable topo maps are great for saving battery power and not needing a strong signal to stream the map. GREAT APP!!!!

5/5 stars

Best iPhone Topographic app

I have used this app for several revs now. Locating and downloading topo maps is incredibly easy, and they are seamlessly joined together for greater flexibility than using the hard copy maps alone. Upgrades are timely and aimed toward keeping this the top topographic app for iPhone. Highly recommended!

4/5 stars

Needs one thing.

Great application. One thing it absolutely needs is the ability to download maps straight from itunes, via my pc, without wifi. I don't have wifi, I'm not getting wifi, and I'm not driving up the road to McD's to download maps. Limiting map downloads to wifi or phone is ridiculous. I downloaded one low res and one hi res map via the phone's internet. Don't waste your time with the low res. Hi res map is very clear and easy to read when fully zoomed in. Well worth the $8, just need to address that one issue.
