Customer Reviews

Great for newer devices if...

This app is great, the new version is a BIG step forwards, way easier to use then the old version. If you download it I suggest you download the offline maps or it will lag and freeze a lot. It works fine on iPhone 5s and iPad Air or newer but it is HOPELESS on older devices. These other people probably use a OLD device and didn't download the offline maps.


Once upon a time this was a great app. Offline maps were stored, gps input with ability to drop pins. Was a great addition to my work life.

Now, no GPS feed, map detail is useless unless you are online and off-line stored maps seem to have always gone missing whenever you need them.

I'm only keeping the app in the hope that it is one day re-built with the functionality I once enjoyed and at one point paid for.

TRASH - pretty on surface, no detail

They stopped paying Bing to access maps and so you can't zoom in!! No detail available now - just a pretty globe to spin around. CONSUMER ISSUE: I pay for functionality and then National Geographic "upgrades" to remove what I paid for. DON'T TRUST THEM...
Update: who are all these people saying it's wonderful and telling us we have old devices? The
FAQs that National Geographic provide admit this new lack of functionality. End of story.
