Do you need an offline map? DIY Map GPS offers you "Unique" features. The "DIY" in the app name is a clue that this is not just an offline map app.

Basically you can directly download OpenStreetMap, OpenCycleMap, OpenSeaMap as an app which allows you to download maps of any place in the world. FREE downloads of 3,788 city maps worldwide and millions of Points of Interest are already listed. All you have to do is just download the maps app.

Now, We would like to introduce the unique "DIY Map" feature. You can make your own offline maps in several ways outlined below.

First, you can use map files with the formats listed below without conversion.
- OziExplorer Map Data file(.map)
- Google Earth KMZ/KML file
- Kashmir3D KMZ/KML file

Second, you can use the atlas(with MBTiles SQLite format) downloaded through the Mobile Atlas Creator.
- Mobile Atlas Creator uses 25 world map sources to create an atlas. Mobile Atlas Creator is available for Mac OSX, Windows, Linux for free. (http://mobac.sourceforge.net/)

Finally, You can convert a RasterMap file into a Tile-based DIY Map DB(.diymap) using the "DIY Map Maker" provided by us. "DIY Map Maker" is available for Mac OSX, Windows for free. (http://www.builtsoft.com)
You can use NOAA RNC® (Raster Navigational Charts) as well as JPEG/TIFF for the DIY Map. NOAA provides weekly updates to the Raster Navigational Charts, which are available for free in the BSB format(.kap). NOAA RNC® are full-color digital images of NOAA's entire suite of paper charts. Here are the files supported by DIY Map Maker.
- Supported file formats: TIFF/GeoTIFF, MrSID, OziExolorer Map Data(.map), NOAA BSB(.kap), ECW, Goole Earth KMZ/KML, Kashmir3D KMZ/KML, JPEG2000, Erdas HFA, JPEG and more…

Your path to exploration starts here!

I love being outside, whether for hiking, camping, running or just enjoying nature. However, many portable GPS units have limited information and capability—I sold a Magellan because it didn’t provide me much information. DIY Map is a great way for you to ditch bulky expensive GPS units and use your mobile device. Live tracking of your destination, local weather and restaurants of major cities are just the start.

You can download maps of most anywhere you can travel or imagine—but no bloat of places you don’t need—personal customization. You can track your yourself through GPS and even figure out speed and cadence using your bike—something I can’t wait to try out once all this snow melts!

This is like Google Maps and Garmin and on steroids. The capabilities and customization are well worth it. No need spending hundreds on a new device that is obsolete in months when you can have a fully customizable and updateable app that will grow with you and your travels. Easily worth the low price.

A Miracle for Travelers and iPod Users

zmohiuddin

This app is probably the most amazing app you will find on the App Store. It essentially allows you to save maps to your phone with a bunch of other handy navigation/trip tracking options. If you travel at all you know how hard it is to get a Data plan on your iPhone for a reasonable price, and even when you do there's no guarantee of getting service! This app turns you from a lost foreign traveler to an expert navigator.

The UI is clean, easy to use, and absolutely functional. One other use case I found for this was for folks who have an iPod touch or do not have a data plan on their iPhones. Offline maps can help you find your way around with any data connection! Perfect for the two groups I mentioned above and travelers!

This app is really amazing in its depth of features and utility value. Get this app now and never be lost again!

This May Just Get Me Through Geology

NReluctant

I have been looking for an app like this for a while online, and to be honest the cool icon design is what attracted me to this one. My Geology class has been doing a few lessons involving Google Earth, but I needed something I can use while in class to ask questions and that will help me with more accurate coordinates. This app looks like it has it all from what I can tell! The compass feature seems to be super accurate and does just what I need. The maps are neat looking, not 100% what I am used to, but overall this app is really neat and has some cool features!
