  • Hiking

    By Tamawk
    I use it to track my hikes and search and rescue training with my dog. It has been helpful with showing the area I covered and the distance I went. Wondering, can it be linked to a gps for a dog? To track where my dog went while searching for missing subjects both in training and on actual searches. This would show exactly how much of the area was covered. Would be very helpful for search work.
  • Flexible Scale

    By Hispanologist
    The scale changes as you shrink or expand the map. Never found any digital map that would do this.
  • All good but the map downloading

    By Tock13
    This is a great app with good selection of maps. My main reason for getting this app was for the offline map feature. I do a lot of exploring of logging roads, hiking trails, walking up streams and such so need maps viewable without cell signal. It works great...if you can get them to download. I was heading to the woods for a week and trying to grab the maps I wanted was one of the most frustrating things I have done in a while. The app crashes non-stop while trying to download. I zoomed way in to the smallest map quad to download and it crashes, tried one of the larger blocks of maps and it crashes. It will grab one map, maybe download 7 in a row then refuse any more and constantly crash. It closes the app and you have to start all ver finding the specific map to download. I have a newer iPhone and it’s current on updates, tons of free space and I’m on a fast WiFi connection. Doesn’t matter, crash, crash, crash! Seriously annoying. Long ago I bought another app called Topo Maps and downloaded hundreds of maps with no issue. I stopped have it but that app has very outdated maps and not near the features of Topomaps+ but dang to this day I can download any number of maps I want without my blood pressure rising!! Fix the downloading so I can give 5 stars!!!
  • Great app

    By JacksonsDisturbed
    I downloaded almost every hiking app I could and tested them all. This is by far my favorite. The free version provided some trails not found anywhere else and I loved the draw route feature. I’ll definitely be upgrading to the full version at the beginning of the next hiking season.
  • Topo Map+ Pro

    By bonjelu
    Great app gets me everywhere I want to go skiing in the back and side country. Easy to download to or from my iPad (sync either way) for planning routes and debriefing or my PC & overlay to GOOGLE EARTH Easy to send my location with pictures, it syncs my pictures to an exact location and time when I took that picture including which way I was aiming camera highly recommend this app
  • Doesn’t high lite trails

    By jgheree
    Down loaded the plus so we could use it for backpacking lost creek wilderness trail and come to find out to get the trails I needed to buy the pro $59.99. So I used All Trails and it worked wonderfully
  • Disappointing purchase

    By )(*&!@#$^%
    I purchased the map pass subscription, downloaded the app on my iPhone, iPad, and MacBook strictly for the high resolution maps. The app delivers on the iOS devices but when you open it on a MacOS device you are told that you have to upgrade to the Pro version (another $50/yr) to get the higher resolution maps that you are looking at on your iOS device and have already paid for. Ripoff!!! Having used multiple GPS and mapping programs, I would recommend people skip Topo Maps and purchase a subscription to Gaia Pro,($40 instead of the $30 for map pass + $50 for the Pro version of Topo Maps to run on MacOS), which gives you everything Topo Maps Pro gives you including syncing data across all devices.
  • Great App but needs improvement

    By hnagra
    I have been using Topo maps+ for couple of years for backpacking and it works well in the backcountry. However, plotting routes is a pain. First of all, I don’t like the fact that it doesn’t have desk top application that can be used to plot routes and then import to the app. Also, the app doesn’t work well on the iPad - it’s super slow. Search function is not that great. When I am planning a hike and want to enter a search criteria to go to that map section, it doesn’t always take me to where I want to go means there are still a lot of places that are not entered? Also, when I plot a route using existing trails, cursor just stops if there is even a little gap in the trail on the map. Then I have to start a new route and then connect both later on which is a pain. I know I can use the freehand but freehand is not that accurate on mileages. I prefer using existing routes.
  • Love This App!!

    By norm&shannon
    Planned more hikes than we had days for in Rocky Mountain National Park for the second week of June not knowing exactly what kind of snow we'd find on the trails. Topo Maps+ was a blessing when the snow obliterated the trails. In addition, the Progress on Trail function is amazing fo those long hikes. It lets you know where you are and how much longer you have to go to the next waypoint or till the end. Furthermore,the manager, Danny Scott, is a treasure. I love the emails with tips and suggestions and when I had a question about a particular feature he was on it right away. Thank you for an App that works and continues to grow and develop. Cheers!!

    This a great hiking app. So much to offer. The app has the most trails of any app. Lots of maps to choose from. USGS maps to Appalachian Trail Maps. You can plan hiking trips and see what kind of elevation you will encounter. Later this year I will be going to New Mexico so I downloaded the Benchmark Maps which will be great use to me. If you take photos while your hiking they will appear on the trail. It even shows you what direction you took the picture. Finally great support from the designers of the app. They helped me a lot. I highly recommend this app.
