•View five different map types: streets, hybrid, aerial, topo, and terrain.
•Access more than 68,000 topographic maps in U.S. and Canada. Topos scales are 1:24K in the Lower 48, 1:63K in Alaska and 1:50K in Canada.

** TRIP TOOLS **
The GPS Maps app features a quiver of tools to help you find that trophy buck or catch the big one.
Waypoints: Drop-and-drag waypoints on to the map. Name them and add descriptions, whether it’s a boat dock, fishing hotspot, or deer camp.
Place Search: Looking for new lakes brimming with bass, or that hidden meadow full of elk? Use our search to find more than 10 million places. Find trails, peaks, lakes, rivers, forests, and more.
Digital Compass: Press the mini-compass to overlay a large digital compass on the map. See compass bearing and declination too.
Ruler: Need to find out the distance from deer camp to hunting stand? It’s easy to measure the distance between any two points.
Smart Paste: Copy GPS coordinates from hunting and fishing websites and instantly map their locations into GPS Maps.
Coordinates: Match your latitude/longitude or UTM coordinates to your paper map, GPS device, or Recon app. Supported map datum: WGS84 and NAD27.
