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.

Great trail app for price!
I used this app for the first time the other day for my small backpack trip. I like the feel and simplicity of using it. Helped me out a lot! A couple things that I noticed though that could be better though. Sometimes when I try to move the map around it freezes and it is really annoying. When I forget to attach a picture to a waypoint I later on cant put one from my camera roll. Also, it would be nice if we can switch maps from the main screen with a shortcut button. Besides those things I didn't run into issues. I'm sure this app will improve over time, but for $5 it is a great value considering the other ones out there!
hopes up too high
The elevations for the Topo Map I-III are in meters. I reported a map error near where I ride and we'll see if they can fix it. The error made it look like there is a giant cliff right through the whole front range near Golden, CO. Must be a stitching error. The USGS maps are very old but that's not their fault. At least the elevations are in feet. I'm trying to give the app more of a chance because it's not super intuitive. Eg: If you search for a feature outside the downloaded map it just gives you an error unless you search for it in the New Map page. Surrounding areas don't really load unless you go to the Global Online Map specifically, which I didn't see at first. Maybe it's better for metric countries.
Best Hiking Map App!!
I'm an avid hiker, and am out hiking multiple times a month. I have gone through several crappy hiking map app's til I found this one. It seems like the map quality on the others was so-so and you had to pay a fee to get the maps or buy them ala carte. I have done multiple hikes with this app, the hiking map accuracy is great, I love that it downloads the maps to your phone for places where there is no service, has the 3D view, and records my tracks.
