Great for Europe-saved the day
First of all, this is not Google Maps, so don't expect it to have all the features Google Maps has. I recently used this app in Italy and it saved us so many times I can't even count them. Yes your location isn't as precise as it could be with cellular service on, but it is great if you don't want to pay for cell service while overseas. Before traveling I had printed out the directions to get us around, but there are times when the printed directions don't cut it, that is where this comes in. Need a gas station? Zoom in on the area near your location and look around this app shows them. Don't expect the moon, if you can't read a regular paper map, you will probably have problems, otherwise get this app, there really is no downside other than space on your phone.
I'd give negative stars if I could
This map is possibly the most useless paid app I've ever downloaded. Search while in offline mode fails to find pretty much any address. Location accuracy is substandard. Maps are only sometimes correct. The compass apparently needs to calibrate every time I relaunch the app, and even then it's a crapshoot on if it calibrates correctly.
If you're thinking that this would be a good map to use while traveling to a new place for the first time (like I was), prepared to be lost - a lot. That is, until you use the FREE google maps app. That one works, and as advertised. Yes, the difference between the two is that this one has offline maps, but trust me - you're better off using a paper map than this piece of junk. I can honestly say this is one of the biggest disappointments I've come across in the iTunes Store. Avoid at all costs.
Don't leave home without this.
Data is expensive in Europe, having of line maps is the way to go. Streets in many European countries are small twisty streets that make it difficult for a stranger to find there way thru a town. This app will take care of that. Also clearly shows the train routes as well as labels on major sites you might like to visit. Searchable by category (eg Pharmacy, Hospital, Police, etc) or by location or place by name. Also great to have when no GPS is available in cities with tall buildings or subways (eg. San Francisco). DON'T TRAVEL WITHOUT THIS APP. Just remember to download the maps you need before you start out for the day.
