Turns your iPhone/iPad into a powerful Outdoor, Off-Road or Marine GPS. If you’re looking for Topo Maps, 4x4 Maps or Marine Charts for Australia or New Zealand to work offline on your iPhone or iPad, this is the place to start.

This app provides free access to 1:250,000 scale topographic maps for Australia, New Zealand and many other free maps around the world. It is compatible with all maps published in the Memory-Map format since 2001 and works with maps you may already have on your PC/Mac or have downloaded from the Digital-Map-Store (1000s of worldwide maps available for download and use on most PC/Mac’s, Tablets and Phones) See the Memory-Map web site for details.

Once your choice of maps are downloaded to your iPhone/iPad, cellular network coverage or internet connection is not required for real time GPS navigation (as long as your device supports a GPS function).

The app is designed to be used standalone, but it can also used with the free PC or Mac app where maps and GPS data can be shared with your home computer for planning, printing and 3D visualisation. Then sync everything to your iPhone/iPad and enjoy navigating outdoors with high quality maps.

When you get home, you can transfer your tracklog and points of interest back onto your computer, to archive and to analyse your trip; speed, time, distance, elevation profile, etc.

If you're serious about your outdoor adventures, you'll appreciate this no frills, full featured navigation app and the high-quality maps and charts.

Great App for hiking and off road driving


This is a versatile app with a huge range of maps available. I used it to plan a 3 month trip around the UK to get a feel for distances and the lay of the land. I have an extensive array of maps covering Australia with scenic locations, campgrounds, and rest areas marked, and a set of detailed topographic maps for use when hiking or cycling. I can use the maps on my PC for planning, on my iPad in the car, or on my phone when hiking or cycling. I can then load the recorded tracks into google earth or other applications to create a record of my trips.
The addition of a scale marker in the latest version is a big improvement.

A great map app


I run the biggest latest iMac which also runs Memory-map on Windows. The Mac software is not as capable as the PC. It won't recognise maps held on the Mac or licences.

Nevertheless, this is a great mapping/GPS app and I've got them all. It's simple to use but has many more user options for points of interest, tracking, routes and maps. The free app works well but If you've got your own maps on a Windows software you can put them on your iPhone with the paid upgrade. Support is also tops. If you're a casual mapper get the free one but it won't be long before you will want to upgrade.

Long time user


Brilliant app. I always recommend to others.
Store points, logs trips, leaves a trace to help you back track or not cover same track twice, the free standard map pretty decent, easy to use and navigate

No turn by turn routing but if your using topo maps your probably not looking for that anyways

I've used it all over the eastern coast on Australia. The free map is enough to get around touring but the 25k maps are unreal for exploring inside parks.

Tech support is fairly quick from the website only 1 issue can't be resolved but there is a work around which is fairly easy. 25k maps when you move into another map section you need to zoom out to the next map layer then zoom back in, which is usually less then five taps of the zoom out and 5 taps to zoom back into the correct map section which is easy enough to do on the fly. This issue isn't enough to knock it off the 5 star rating.

Thank you memory map team
