Needs update for iOS11!
Seems pretty good, but have just noticed after updating to iOS11 that the menus don’t render properly, jumbling text at the top of the screen and making it impossible to click the back button to get out of the menu. Have to close app and reopen to get back to the map.
Also just paid for 1 month of pro access for a trip next week, but it doesn’t look like the more detailed map can be downloaded? Have deleted and re-downloaded SA map but when i put the phone in airplane mode to simulate no signal, i cant zoom in to the detailed map. Which will be useless when I’m trying to use it offline in a remote area! Defeats the purpose of the pro access...
Am using iphone7plus..
Good app need attention and and improvements
I bought this app before Christmas, its great app however it need serious improvement. Maps flicker when you zoom inn and out, which make it inconvenient to use. When you buy Hema Maps you always expect the attention to details, this product need update. I still recommended, but look for alternatives
Great bit of kit......but......
Man this thing can use up some storage on your iPad or iPhone. It is an awesome product but it can be improved storage wise. And it can be a bit confusing getting it all to work off line downloading maps for tracks and such. Please Hema, look into trimming down the size of this beast so it doesn't take up so much room..... Fantastic otherwise.
I use it in conjunction with Pocket Earth.
Now that is an awesome app....!!!
