Description

GPS & Maps is a simple, yet powerful GPS app for supporting navigation and outdoor activities like geocaching, sailing, skating, trekking, biking or traveling by airplane. It measures your position, height and acceleration with accuracy information and in different units like feet, meter, miles and kilometers. Your highest altitude and speed will also be logged. You can show and save your current position or other waypoints on a map and pick one of the following formats to view your coordinates: - GPS Coordinates (Latitude/Longitude) - Decimal Degrees - Degrees/Minutes/Seconds GPS & Maps is a must have for geocachers, due to the easy switching between coordinates and map. The integrated flashlight enables users like geocachers to find targets even in dark environments without having to use a separate device. Via in-app purchase you can add some useful features to GPS & Maps: - Premium Edition: Unlock all of the following features. - Waypoints Addon: Save your current location as a marker on the map. Add new locations like geo caches to the map by entering GPS coordinates. Pick different colors for waypoints. Export waypoints via e-mail. Show or hide saved waypoints on the map. - Map Widgets: The draggable Map Widgets show your location, altitude, speed and GPS accuracy directly on the map. You can change the widget transparency and textcolor in the settings to optimize readability on different map tiles and map data sources like Google Maps or Open Street Map. - Compass: The compass shows your heading relative to magnetic north or true north (configurable in the settings) and your current location coordinates. It also shows additional information like street, city and country. If you buy Compass and Map Widgets the Compass will also be displays as a widget on the map. - Open Street Map Addon: This feature enhances the map with additional map data from Open Street Map. - Google Maps Addon: This feature enhances the map with additional map data from Google Maps. The map modes 'standard', 'satellite', 'hybrid' and 'terrain' can be selected in the options menu. Please keep in mind that the accuracy of your position and acceleration always depends on the intensity of the available GPS signal. Compass and heading information are only available on devices with magnetometer (iPhone3 GS or newer and iPad).

    Difficult to pin and, once there and named, difficult to recall-return to the pin. Also, there’s no “Instructions” or “Help” button.
  • One of the best GPS apps for backcountry

    I’ve used this several times where AT&T coverage is poor or doesn’t exist. Being able to see where you are, have been and going is one reason to carry a ‘smart’ phone only instead of with a handheld GPS. Just be sure to download and update the maps for where you’re going BEFORE going ‘off the grid’.
  • Can’t delete it and don’t want it now.

    Found it very helpful in documenting the location of where pictures were taken. Also helped in finding locations that are off the main roads and in remote places.
  • Great app

    I often forget I have this app, but whenever I’m out and have a query (e.g. “how high am I?” or “where am I (in coordinates)”) it has the answers I’m looking for, in text, in an easily readable table. I only really care about the GPS tab, but now that I looked at it again I might grab the OSM pack.
