Topo Maps Canada
By David Crawshay
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Download and view topographic maps covering Canada.
Topographic maps are useful for recreational activities such as hiking, canoeing, camping, fishing, mountain biking, geocaching, and exploring.
Choose from 3 map sources: Canada Base Map (shaded/unshaded), and Toporama.
Download maps for areas of interest to view them later when you don't have Internet access or you don't want to use cell data.
Use location tracking to show where you are on the map, your elevation, and the accuracy of the GPS signal.
Flags are included with map downloads. Add flags (waypoints) to the map to mark your current location or other locations. Import flags from other sources using GPX files and geocache LOC files. Share flags with others using email or AirDrop. Organize your flag types by color, for example, geocaches, trailheads, and summits.
Trails are included with map downloads. Import trails (tracks) using GPX files you find on the Internet or from your personal GPS track collection. Share trails with others using email or AirDrop. Organize your trail types by color, for example, mountain bike trails, hiking trails, and OHV trails.
Record your own trails to show where you've been on the map, follow them later, and share with others.
Recorded trails include an elevation profile (distance/elevation chart).
Navigate to a flag by following the direction arrow that uses your compass heading. Useful for geocaching.
Measure the distance between points on the map.
Use file sharing to transfer maps, trails, and flags between your devices so you aren't required to download them again. (Attention Windows 10 users: The built-in Windows 10 WebDAV client has been unreliable, please use a third-party WebDAV client instead).
Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
What's New in Version 5.4.3
Fixed inconsistent trail "at this point" measurement.
Reversed order of UTM northing/easting coordinates in flag editor.
I use this frequently as I work in the wilderness.
Who needs maps with this!?
Absolutely love this app!!!
Was totally impressed that it works when in a no service area. Accuracy amazing, A true gem!!
Don't bother-- doesn't download maps
Some maps can be downloaded. However, many will load up to 50%, then stop.
E.g. Calgary area. Whether using wifi or cellular (full signal on both), will not download. I had the same problem six months ago; no change. I am literally out here in the middle of nowhere trying to download the map with a full signal in the middle of a metropolitan area, and it will not load. Not recommend.
