Avenza Maps is a powerful offline map viewer with a connected in-app Map Store to find, purchase and download professionally created maps for a wide variety of uses including hiking, cycling, camping, outdoor recreation, and adventure traveling. Free for recreational use, just pay for maps or download free ones. In-app subscription required for professional users.

Our mobile maps don't need the internet to work. Going hiking? Find an official park or topographic map and navigate with only GPS to locate yourself on a map even when not connected to WiFi or a cellular network. Record your tracks, estimate travel times, and add placemarks and photos to share with others.

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

Still works great!


Most of the reviews are people who have been using it free of charge at their work. Now that they have to pay for it, they don't and they're mad.

It still works well and you can still download a lot of nice maps from the Map Store. Good for rec users. If you need to load more than 3 of your own maps, pay for the unlock subscription!

This app is great and improves with each release


I use this app all the time when traveling and doing recreation . There is nothing like it with such an easy to use toolset and such a vast catalogue of available maps. I think it's great and quite honestly I do
not understand the negative reviews that some like Rob645445 have placed. I have dozens of purchased maps and had no problem keeping them after upgrading. I am using the 100% free version. As i understand it there is no limit whatsoever on maps purchased from the map store so i do not know what he is talking about. Whiners like him just expect everything for free and do not think app developers need to eat. I hate seeing my favourite apps dragged through the mud like that.
Avenza Maps is awesome and everyone with offline mapping needs should use it.

Offline maps


Love getting offline maps for my fave hiking trails and parks. Can you add more filters to the Map Store? Thanks!
