Free for recreational use, just pay for maps (or download free ones). In-app subscription available for professional users.

Our mobile maps don't need the internet to work. Carry maps around like books or music! Maps stored on your device and are always available even when not connected to WiFi or cellular coverage so that you can avoid data roaming charges when outside of your local network.

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Frustrating App

Otokoyama Denki

I’ve been using the app for approximately six months during a handful of off-road trips.

It’s adequate when you acquire a map which is originally done in PDF (such as from Tom Harrison, National Geographic, and some others). Many of the maps, however, are in fact sourced from compressed scans of printed maps (or low quality renderings) that are virtually unusable when zoomed in to ascertain area details. The store does not indicate which are native PDF and which are scans.

Many of the better available maps are available in hard copy for essentially the same price, though missing only the nice ability to use your device’s GPS to indicate and track your location. An issue of all mapping apps is that it’s sometimes nice to spread out a paper map to get the big picture as something is lost when you use an app such as this to zoom out making features so small that they’re unrecognizable and text unreadable.

Overall, if you needs maps, you’re much better off getting the much more capable Gaia app and suffering the subscription fee which you’ll quickly rack up in a handful of maps with this app versus unlimited maps in Gaia.

I think there’s a place for this app if you restrict yourself to Tom Harrison maps or are able to get lucky and find native PDF maps which are not available on Gaia, but all of the Nat Geo Trails illustrated and topographic maps are in Gaia ... and much easier to find and download.

A Must Have

Since 1992

I absolutely love this app. My family enjoys hiking, biking, and off highway motorcycle riding which is where this app excels. For all you single track and trail riding motorcycle enthusiasts find your map by searching for either “MVUM” (multi vehicle use map) and/or “OHV” (off highway vehicle). No worries about cell service as this app utilized the GPS in your phone.
I also love the ability to plot photos and mark my trails which makes it a joy to share later with friends.

A feature I would like to see added would be the ability to share my recorded “track” via a simple text. The track would then be imported into other applicable maps and more importantly with friends who also have the app and corresponding map(s) so that they could follow the same track at a later date.

Fees to add your own maps!

Why make someone pay to add something that they already paid for? This is ridiculous that you have moved to making people pay for imports. I'm a firefighter and our agency previously used this app till they started charging fees to import your own maps. We are on the move all the time switching from fire to fire, we need to give other people the maps when necessary but can't because they have to pay now. It's a bad business call if you're trying to make more money or have a following that use your app. Because from what I see all you're doing is making more people mad and losing more customers. You lost a whole firefighting community where I live that used to use this app. Google maps is what we use now if anyone cares to know.
