Professional note: When i found this 2 years ago we were stuck using google earth to read our offices .kmz files. Now all field personnel use this. Its become an invaluable tool to get our work done. Also being able to create and send your own .kmz to the office helps explain difficult terrain or situations. Personal note: I use this when we go camping and off-roading creating my own road map through the wild so to speak, using the trip recorder. I pretend to use my compass when we need to find our way back to base camp but no one knows ;)
***** Review update: This is still the best, most comprehensive mapping app available. ***** Still amazing. I can’t believe how much this app can do. It’s like peeling the layers off of an onion.* I almost gave up on this app before I realized it’s potential but I’m glad I didn’t. I was looking for an app that could pick up where google fell short and I found that and more with this program. Still, I feel like I am barely scratching the surface of what this app can do. I think it would be a very good investment if the developer were to invest more heavily into the tutorials - perhaps geared toward material that is not too challenging to those of us that have absolutely no background in IT, programming, coding, etc. I had this app for almost a year before I actually used it and almost never tried to use it again because of the difficulty I was having with the learning curve. I still probably only know how to use about a quarter of its functions once I buckled down and read the tutorial that is offered online, though I would be lying if I said it wasn’t a challenge. Some of the information on there is quite advanced. Developers: I suggest investing in a video tutorial series in addition to your online tutorial. I think the customer base would benefit greatly if they offered a video tutorial. This would lessen the chance of some folks getting frustrated and never getting far enough along to really see what this app can do. Oh, and THANK YOU for this app. What a god send!!!

I upgraded and it's worth every penny. Import and export no problem. Tracks and points no problem. Tons of customization. As someone what said there's a learning curve and clearly labeled buttons would fix that but alas it's 2018 and clearly labeled buttons are out of fashion every where.
After an exhaustive search for a map app with all the features I needed, I stumbled across Map Plus on a fluke. And boy am I glad! This app has more features than than you can shake a stick at. As I stared adding points, at every turn I found my wishes granted. It’s crazy how many options the developer thought to add. My mapping app search has ended. I’m in love.
I use this app principally to view georeferenced maps while out mapping in the field and can easily overlay Topo and geo maps, and while using my built in GPS unit on my IPad can precisely locate myself. Overall a great map for dropping pin locations and attach photos such that they are GPS referenced. However, my only complaint is the line drawing functionality. If developers could add a line drawing function that is more organic, such as using your finger to draw the line, that’d be a great add. If better line drawing functionality would be incorporated, it would make it such a great mapping app. As it stands, it is a great tool if you have referenced maps to use in the field or trying to plan transects without lugging around numerous paper maps.
The most usefull apps for gis,, would be very usefull if table editing feature is added,,
I was looking for an off line version of google maps that I could still draw on while off line. This app does it all. I use this for hinting and hiking. I love the fact that you ca also track your route as you go which is a bonus as google can’t do it. Their “no network needed” file transfer from phone to phone is great. Allow you to collaborate data collected without finding cell service first. The only upgrade I can think of would be to see your invited friends on the map when you have a data connection. Maybe establish the link when connecting wirelessly?
I absolutely love this app I use it to import our ARCGIS files it’s far more intuitive than ESERI if I could it would have 10 stars. Easy to update and add special characters.
I’ve tried a ton of map apps and none come close to this. It’s easy to use and very thorough!
