Must have for advanced mapping

This is my go-to app for anything that Google or Apple Maps can’t handle. With selectable map sources, downloadable vector maps, decent navigation, and rock solid track recording, it does everything I need. It even works offline with a little preparation.

Worth a try

I used this a few years ago when it was Galileo. I downloaded maps for 5 US states. The UI is confusing but you get used to it, so everyone I showed this to I would explain the UI so that they’d understand what it does. The map design is not as nice as other mapping apps but this app works offline, so I used it occasionally when I was out of signal range. Since then, Galileo/Guru has changed their pricing from one time to subscription, and other apps have added offline use. HERE Maps has unlimited downloads, a simpler UI, and better map design; Google Maps has limited downloads but a nicer UI and more data on the maps. I stopped using Galileo/Guru when I had to restore my phone from backup. It lost the maps it had already downloaded and wouldn’t let me download them again without payment. I understand why they raised their prices but it made me think about why I didn’t use it much (map design, ui, features), and led me to delete it. I don’t want to be reminded every month that I’m paying for something I only use occasionally; I only subscribe to things I use often. It’s the right app for some people so *it’s worth a try* but it wasn’t worth the higher price for me so I’ve removed it and no longer show it to my colleagues.

Great app. Needs CarPlay support!

Love this app. Would get 6 stars if it had support for Apple CarPlay.

Wish the free version allowed to more paths

The free version only allows you to trace 15 trails. Also, I haven’t figured out how to map individual waypoints.

Pro-russian world maps..

I received the developer’s response: “We develop app. Map data in our app belongs to OpenStreetMap project. It’s open map project and anyone could edit it. No Russia is involved in mapping. It’s more like a consequences of their foreign affairs." Dear Evgen B. - thank you for your response. Maybe you should look into alternative OpenMap projects? Had internet existed during WW2 half of Europe would still be showing up as Germany or the III Reich. Today’s leadership of russia is just as aggressive as the leadership of yesterday’s nazi Germany. To say your map depiction is “a consequence of their (russia’s) foreign affairs” is equivalent to you rewarding their internationally condemned acts of aggression. The current führer of russia will be gone one day and you shouldn’t be rewarding his unlawful actions. Thank you. ____ Like the app in general but I dislike the fact it rearranges some of the world borders based on the views of the kremlin tyrant. Several ‘countries’ (abkhasia??, transnistria?? LOL) it depicts do not exist but are rather territories occupied by the russian autocracy. The same applies to Crimea which, according to 99.99% of the world’s population, rightfully belongs to Ukraine.

Great map offline.

My family and I were trying to find a house in a remote area and our GPS on our phones couldn’t reach service where we were. Not to mention we wouldn’t be able to find our way back home. Luckily, a year ago, I decided to download this Guru map offline app and to my surprise, it worked offline like It said it would. So this is diffidently an app worth keeping. As well as a real map. Lol

Not worth paying for

Great App!

Love that it is free and shows terrain for all my trad climbing routes in Yosemite Valley. I can record the gps trail map, save pins for not so well marked climber trails. Have been using this app for over 5 yrs!
By Vish12Math

I like it mostly.

One thing that I have found that I dislike about the app is the search function. Let’s say I open the app and conduct a search. It finds my results, and if I select a result, a new panel appears on the right side of the screen that shows the update map. I cannot seem to merge the search results into the main screen. I do not want a small sliver of screen. If I search for a location, chances are I want the map to be centered on my selected search result. Full screen, big map. No small windows or split screens. Horrible aggravating implementation of search.
