"Topo Maps+ is your best backcountry companion" -- TUAW (The Unofficial Apple Weblog)

Dream Less, Adventure More! Download Topo maps for offline use while deep in the backcountry.

Combine GPS with downloaded USGS, MapBox, NRCAN/GEOBC, and Thunderforest topo maps and you can view you current location on a topo map even when you are at that perfect hidden mountain lake that is days from the nearest the cell tower. Use the GPS and compass on your iPhone to see your current location and to align the map with the direction you are looking.

(GPS and compass work without an internet connection.)

View your offline maps and current location just by glancing down at your wrist. You no longer need to pull your iPhone out of your bag to check your position.

Easily download USGS, MapBox, NRCAN/GEOBC, Thunderforest, and Satellite maps so you can use the maps offline while deep in the backcountry.

Be prepared for that awesome journey through majestic mountains, down flower ladened valleys, and over craggy passes. Trace routes to find approximate distances and elevation profiles between locations. After tracing a route on a topo map you can view that route on the Satellite map.

Pas vraiment en français


À savoir: J'ai téléchargé la version payante avant d'écrire cette critique pour m'assurer d'avoir accès au produit complet et je l'ai utilisée avec un iPhone 7 Plus, en Colombie Britannique (Canada) uniquement pour l'instant.


* L'application se vente d'être en français mais 80% des informations sont uniquement en anglais (le manuel d'utilisation et tous les guides, entre autre).

* Autre problème plus grave: on ne retrouve pas les informations importantes normalement présentes sur les cartes topographiques (points d'eau, terrains de camping, chutes, rapides, refuges montagneux, helipads, etc.). Pour les habitués de la haute montagne, c'est donc une application inutile, la bonne vieille carte est mieux.

* La plupart des chemins hors-piste "routes" de montagne (sentiers non officiels) ne s'y retrouvent pas non plus. Même les très connus et anciens. Comme on trouve déjà une multitude d'informations sur les sentiers réguliers sur internet, je ne vois pas l'utilité de payer pour cette appli. La version gratuite serait suffisante.


* La possibilité de cliquer sur un sentier particulier et voir apparaître les détails du sentier (nom, distance, relief), très utile pour la planification.

* Le fait que la carte tourne avec l'iPhone pour pointer dans la même direction. Ainsi si je m'oriente vers un pic, la carte pointera dans la même direction, génial (!) et très utile pour enseigner la topographie et l'orienteering aux enfants. Autre option utile: pouvoir afficher les anneaux de distance, pratique.

* malgré certaines critiques données ici, j'ai trouvé le temps de téléchargement très raisonnable pour la quantité d'informations reçue. 40 minutes environ pour télécharger quatre semaines de pistes de marche en montagne, c'est moins long que le temps nécessaire pour se rendre au magasin acheter les cartes topo. Peut-être les gens essaient-ils de télécharger TOUTES les cartes d'une région? Dans quel but si on ne s'y rend pas?

* L'accès aux cartes sans internet est essentiel et apprécié, ainsi que la possibilité d'imprimer les cartes.

À mon avis, cette appli ne vaut pas tout à fait son coût car ces informations sont déjà disponibles ailleurs mais elle offre un atout "gadget techno" intéressant pour les adeptes du plein air. Un abonnement à vie serait intéressant pour en faire une possibilité de cadeau à ceux qui ont déjà tout.

Great maps and hopefully with long term support.


Have used many gps apps and have lost many gpx tracks from other apps that won’t update to the new IOS Systems for iPhones. It’s very frustrating. I hope that this app continues support for its users. On that note, I am extremely happy with the quality of maps even though I do not have the premium edition.

Developer Response

I wanted to let you know that our intention is to be around for a long time and support the latest phones and iOS versions :) We had Topo Maps+ ready for launch day with the new iPhone X. Also, feel free to email any time you have questions or suggestions for the app.

Bought the map pass but still no high resolution maps. Ripoff!


May have just wasted $20.99. Paid for 6 months map pass but when I try to download a high resolution map it tells me I need a map pass to do so. Not impressed!
