STORE ROUTES & USE OFFLINE
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 maps 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), the Official USGS topo maps and high resolution aerial images for the US area.

Beautiful interface, slow performance.
Okay so this app has an absolutely gorgeous interface. All the buttons are intuitively laid out. I had it figured out in probably about 15 minutes total time. Lots of options make it highly customizable. Where it falls down are the two main features that I wanted the most (hence only the three stars). The off-line maps feature promises to be amazing. However unless you have all night to download the maps, you may find yourself frustrated, as I was, if you try to download them less than an hour prior to a trip. I'm not sure where the server is, but I gave up on a 5 MB download after half an hour and it was only half done. Can't imagine how long the 57 MB 'detailed' download would've taken. I also found that the live view map redraws were taking excessively long time. Oh, and I should mention that this was all over very high-speed Wi-Fi. The other feature that seem to fail was the route planning. Plugged in my waypoints or a very simple street-based walk, clicked calculate, and none of the three servers could calculate my route. Not sure if this was related to the slow download/server performance, but I'll try again later just to be certain. To verify that I was getting good Wi-Fi performance, I used to Google Earth to zoom in on a part of the country that I've never zoomed into before and I had amazingly fast map resolution.
Works great offline
Load your own map when connected to wifi. Easily drag a square around the area you need, it loads with what type of terrain you want. I have an inactive iPhone and use this on my bike. Works great! There are a lot of buttons crammed in to the UI though. I'm excited for landscape/horizontal UI.
This is a great app!
I love all the features it has and would highly recommend it.
