Whereas other mapping apps are primarily designed for cities and roads, displaying hills and mountains as flat and lifeless features, Maps 3D is packed with amazing features that brings the great outdoors to vibrant life with valleys, hills, mountains and footpaths displaying in full 3D so you’ll know your exact elevation.

With Maps 3D you’ll have the option to plan, record and share your routes, turning your iPhone into a fully-fledged GPS device so you can log key coordinates and elevations. You’ll also have offline access to worldwide 3D map data which limits the drain on the battery and means that you can pre-load a map to store when you don’t have a signal.


As an added bonus Maps 3D offers 3D terrain and trip planning, so you’ll never need to worry about getting lost. Towns, streets, mountain peaks and lakes are all searchable, with an accurate and precise map display based on NASA scans of the Earth’s surface combined with the outdoor map OSM (Open Street Map) and the Official USGS topo maps.


Trips can be loaded via iTunes, email, URL or Dropbox, and recorded tracks can be shared via email, Facebook and Twitter, great for showing your friends your latest outdoor accomplishments.


+++ Load a map in advance over WIFI or 4G before your trek, no internet connection needed thereafter
+++ Record your routes by GPS, all coordinates and exact elevations are logged
+++ Plan and evaluate routes directly in the 3D map view
+++ Search for towns, streets , mountain peaks, lakes - offline
+++ Distance traveled, current and average speeds all displayed for an ideal trek


Background GPS recording can significantly cut battery life

Ratings and Reviews

Top for trails


Magnifique, as they say in Spain... Or France...I don't know. What I know is -I'd like to test this app in those two countries... To start with.

Needs more functionality


Good application like the 3d terrain view, like the download map feature., simple to use.
Works fine on iPad 1. Works ok on iPhone 3G iOS 4.3 just a little sluggish. Map download of OpenCycleMap no problem. However OpenStreet map slow to unusable, why?
Other providers of open source maps don't have the same problem, why?
Using way points good. But the function of 'Destination' waypoint seems to have no useful purpose,
Suggestion : why not make more use of 'Destination' waypoint with, for example distance to destination, maybe an arrow pointing to destination or next waypoint. This would make this app very useful for navigating cross country or cycling. Many thanks.

Really very good!


Great app and for the lite version you get alot of functionality. Great to figure out good places to go mountain biking and to find some hills if you need it for your running training. Keep up the good work!
