« How's it Work? »
Just select the cities, regions, or even whole countries you want to download, and it will be available for offline use, complete with information on thousands of POIs (Points of Interest), travel guides and Wikipedia articles.
To do this we utilize community driven open data from a number of amazing projects. We use some magik to compress and package it in a format optimized for mobile devices. Pocket Earth then renders its beautiful vector maps on your device using our OpenGL ES based MagikMap technology.
To learn more about Pocket Earth or the community driven open data sources that we use, please visit our website.
Don’t forget this:
1. Using the GPS features of this app can significantly affect battery life. Only leave GPS enabled when you need to use it. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Pocket Earth only uses GPS in the background for route navigation and gps track recording features.
2. This app uses data from the amazing community driven open mapping project called openstreetmap.org! Coverage detail may vary by region, please visit our website to check the map detail for your regions of interest.
3. Does not currently support all asian texts on the map (Chinese, Japanese, etc).

Pocket Earth is great. I bought it for the offline maps while traveling.
I have it on my iPad and iPhone. Before I go to another state or foreign country I download the areas maps. When I leave the hotel or parked car I drop a pin with label on the map so I can find my way back. The track function is nice, it shows heading arrow and line of travel. I used this while canoeing in a maze of tulles so I could find my way back. Also on a high speed train in France to watch speed, elevation and route.
On my old iPad without GPS I bought a external Glo GPS and connected via Blue Tooth which also worked with Pocket Earth.
One tip, while walking in towns, turn off wifi and let the GPS supply position, your iPad can pick up various positions and make the navigation arrow jump around.
I like the track function while hiking, summery page shows distance, avg speed, max speed, min max altitude and altitude change.
So far so good!
Nice useable map display. Like the compass/course display. Very good when on foot. Going to Europe with it. I expect it will pay off in finding our way around. If only I could upload tracks/download routes in .csv format.
This app usually has a lot of trails that are not on other maps of areas. The Topo add in is very helpful. The tracking feature is also helpful. I use it to track mountain bike rides.
