WHAT OTHERS SAY
▶ "This app saved my life! * * * * *
This app was downloaded, while lost in the Kaimai Ranges. GPS quickly located position, app quickly (ish) downloaded the relevant NZ topo map. From there easily identified position on the map. Outcome, life saved. And my mates who by this stage was getting all girly about it all. Best app ever!!!" - Jk9624 on the UK App Store

What's New in Version 6.1
250,000:1 scale Land Information New Zealand topo maps compliment the existing 50,0000:1 scale maps.

Clunky and difficult to use
When dragging to navigate the map, tiles at the edges of the screen don't load until you lift your finger. This makes for a jarring and unpleasant experience.
