Older edition of USGS maps

I’m not sure why, but the Arizona USGS topo maps are the older editions. There is a 2004 edition that has the road numbers printed on the maps as well as updated location of trails and springs, which is important in a state with limited water. Also, some of the topo maps for sections of the John Muir Trail have meters printed on the maps instead of feet. I would give this app a 5 star review if the maps had more current and accurate data.

I’ve used this app for several years and would rate it 5 stars until recently when they changed the functions available on the free version. They removed essentially all functionality from the free version! I don’t mean to sound cheap, but $50 annually for this is ridiculous. If they restore waypoints and downloadable maps to the free version I’d consider downloading again.

False marketing

It says you can download maps for free, this is an outright lie.

Far Too Expensive

Used this program for a couple of years. Was a five star program when free. Many features now taken away. My grand kids can’t afford it nor can the scouts I taught to use. Should have charged a reasonable one time fee and small fees for for map downloads. With that being said, customer support was very good and owners are very enthusiastic outdoor types. Hopefully they’ll come around and make it affordable.

My compliments

Added Note: developer response to App Store reviews is VERY prompt, and helpful. A suggestion: provide a link to the help email address someplace in the MacOS app. Selecting MacOS Help shows: “Help isn’t available for Topo Maps.” A comment: I’m happy with the costs. I’d much rather be the customer than the product. Adding MacOS app to subscription: if you have a Pro subscription via the iPhone/iPad app and later download the app for MacOS, there evidently can be a delay between signing in and the subscription update. It can be a little confusing because routes, waypoints, etc. update right away leading you to suspect that something isn’t working right. A few minor glitches, but... What a great app! Detailed maps of trails excluded from other apps and maps. If one map doesn’t show the trail, another map will. I love the trail planning capabilities. The snap-to-waypoint feature makes it exceptionally easy to plan a hike and get detailed information about it. Even if part of the hike is on, for example, a road and not a recognized trail, that portion can easily be added using freehand route tracing. Just fantastic.

Doesn’t work on Apple Watch

Map never loads.

Loved the App until...

I used to use this app all the time for running, hiking, backpacking. Whenever I wanted to know look at a Topo map of an area I went straight to this app. But now literally all it’s features cost money. Everything I used to do with the app is now behind the paywall, and I’m not willing to pay for basic features I’ve been using for years. Sad to say after using this for years I’ll be deleting and looking for a new Topo app.

Can’t add new waypoints

I feel like I’ve been duped. I purchased this app a couple years ago and paid to download the maps I need. Now the app is not allowing me to add new waypoints unless I upgrade to the pro version for $50 per year. This is a lot of money for a tour guide, yet all my precious waypoints that I need to do my job are in the app. What am I to do? I won’t upgrade this app, they will trick me again. When I purchased the app, I was never told the features I was paying for would be temporary. I no longer trust this company. I will not do business with them.. My other complaint is the lat/long coordinate formats. The degree symbol is not recognized when I manually add waypoints, so I have to convert them to decimal format which has been a real hassle in the future. Otherwise, until this recent software upgrade the app has worked great.

Vanishing features

The free version of the map used to be great. I have no problem paying for advanced features such as high resolution maps, but taking away features users are used to & rely on is sad. With the latest update I can no longer trace routes, add waypoints or print maps. My biggest complaint is not having the print & share option. I never want to rely completely on technology & believe everyone should be able to print maps. Even a low resolution paper map is better than nothing for an emergency backup.

Greed got the better of them. Was a great app until the update. Sorry, but I won’t pay $50 per year. Much better options out there.
