I have used several map & navigation programs and none work any where near as well as this one. I use this app while deer hunting. It tracks where I have been, allows me to record what deer signs I see, and enables me to return to the best locations without guess work. I always know where I am when in the woods and can always navigate my way home. When I get home, I can print trail and area maps so I can let my family know where I will be at any time.
Make sure to install the latest OS updates before installing. This app is great in every way. A recent update to the app go pushed to pre Big Sur OS users and caused issues. All issues are resolved if you make sure your OS is up to date. This app is flawless and I wouldn't use anything else for mapping out my routes! Developers are very responsive with question and are top notch!
It's clear that they are trying to compete with other Topo programs like OnX, and they have drastically changed access to things like satellite maps. Functions were added, then taken away. Terrible. The level of continuity between Mac and iPhone is inconsistent.
Very Poor Coverage and Detail in the State of Alaska. Missing most of the maps no hiking trails detailed.
I love the iPhone app and have used it for years, on and off, as needed. The Mac app is not anywhere near as useful or stable. I have items I cannot delete, markers I cannot open on maps, etc. Shameful, given the expectation set by the mobile app.
I've been paid pro user of this app for over 2 years now and have used it on every single hike. Topomaps has worked without issue and has NEVER crashed on me. The interface is easy to use to plan and to navigate while on the trail, and It does a great job tracking my location. Their map overlays are great and provide so much detail. When I've had some questions or minor issues, their technical support has been unbelievably responsive! The several times I've contacted them they've replied within a day or so and have resolved any issue I had. I definitely recommend Topomaps
I paid the extra for the better Dif version, much improved, worth it! I would have given 5 stars, but it won’t work on my iPad……that’s a big negative….if you can’t tke it with you, then that’s a disadvantage. It’s my fault that I didn’t pay closer attention to what it was rated to work on. 5/11/19 C. UPDATE 5/13/19- Developer contacted me and explained how to use the app on iPad. Thanks! Now I’ll know where I am when I’m lost……. :) 4/7/20 I’ve contacted the developer a few time recently with routine questions. Unike many other App Store developers, these guys are very responsive to requests for help! Thanks!
I am impressed with developer support. My program crashed after I imported corrupted data. The developer sent me a repair app that allowed me to delete the corrupt data. The first email response was within a few hours on a holiday. The fix came early the next day!
I have been using this app for two years and continue to be amazed with the performance and improvements. Not only does it out perform other apps/gps models in the United States, I have had excellent results in the Swiss Alps, the highlands of Scotland, and areas of Northern Ireland. More important to me is the support. When there has been an issue (as in my trip to Switzerland) I received an immediate response and remedy from the group in Spokane. The issue was minor, but the support terrific. One must realize with such a dynamic evolving program there might be minor issues. The response is always thorough and prompt. Many of the hikers with us in Europe were "wowed" by the performance. I'm looking forward to the new improved "map download" changes. My personal problem is that the program is capable of doing much more--I'm underutilizing it. I recommend the app to anyone leading hikes, going on hikes, or planning hikes.
Recent updates & availability of the USFS MVUM maps have made this my go to map. Activate the Natural Atlas map along with the USFS MVUM maps and together you have a map that no other application or website can touch. Awesome!
