Go Deeper Into the Backcountry
Bring peace of mind: maps & GPS work offline.
Easily download USGS, Glacier Topo, Satellite, and Thunderforest topographic maps so you can use the maps offline while deep in the backcountry.
Use your iPhone's GPS to view your current location, even when you don't have a cell signal.
GPS and downloaded maps work even without an internet connection so you can use Topo Maps+ deep in the backcountry.
Add waypoints at important locations, like where you parked, so you can navigate to those locations.
Topo Maps+ has trail data for over 500,000 trails. Just tap on a trail to see distances and elevation profiles. Don't want to exactly follow the trail, no problem. The trails interact with your own traced routes so you can easily explore custom routes. In the wild, trails are not isolated segments between two points, they are a network of interconnected paths with numerous possible routes. Topo Maps+ lets you explore any possible route through a trail network.

We all know we should never solely rely on technology in the backcountry, but it can be easy to get lazy and not take the time to get a printed map. While appropriate use of technology can make our adventures more enjoyable it can also give us a false sense of security. Thankfully printing maps before you head out is easy in Topo Maps+. Having a printed map can sometimes be the difference between making it out and being lost with an iOS device that ran out of battery. Topo Maps+ makes it easy to print maps on your printer at home, even if you don’t have an AirPrint printer. To make sure your map lasts during your adventure you can print your maps on Adventure Paper or put them in a water proof map case.
Navigation isn't the only reason to use a map while hiking. Often you want to get an idea for how far you have traveled and how far you have left to go. Should we stop for lunch now or wait until we get to the lake? How much farther do we have left until we get to the top of this brutal up hill? Should we stop here for the night or push on to the next campsite? Using trail segments along with progress along a trail now lets you easily answer these questions without recording your hike. It is awesome (and a bit magical feeling) to have this information while hiking deep in the backcountry.
You can see right where you were standing and what direction you were facing when you took a photo right on the map. Photos can be easily turned into waypoints. To remember a location, simply take a picture with your iPhone. Later, you can come back to Topo Maps+ and turn it into a waypoint.
