The Maps: This app uses high-quality scans of the traditional USGS and NRCan topographic maps which have been the definitive resource for hikers and other backcountry users for many years. You can make the terrain stand out with hill shading, using simulated sunlight from the direction of your choice. In the U.S., this app does not use the new "US Topo" maps because they do not show hiking trails and lack other details: please see the web site for more details.
Downloading: US maps are around 8 MB in size and download in a few seconds on a typical home broadband connection. Canadian maps are larger. Both cellular data and WiFi can be used, though WiFi is likely to be more reliable in most cases.

Topo Maps Pros
✓ Superb AppThis app is very simple to use and yet very useful for what we really need in the field. The fact that you can select an entire region (multiple quadrants) for download is worth its weight in gold. In addition, once a region is downloaded, you can load a composite of them with the arrows as you start scanning beyond the loaded quadrant. These are the features I really look for and use most frequently..Version: 1.16
✓ Very AwesomeThis app is incredible. Blows all others away! …if you’re a naturalist, hiker, or love being in nature, then get this app. GPS functions very well and the US data from survey is incredible and accurate. I’ve used this app while serving USCG & DHS in Alaska and found it works extremely well while having very little to no listed cellular signal… literally in the middle of the deepest of terrain— I had used this due to the nature of my service for a backup in case I ever faced any emergency situations for basic survival. I’ve had this app since about 2014 and I find it superior..Version: 1.16✓ Topo Maps Positive Reviews
Topo Maps Cons
✗ One ProblemTopo maps are so out of date it's really bad. I checked the maps of my area and in 1958 there was no "my area". According to the map I'm out in the wilderness. I'm afraid accuracy is a big problem. The maps are nice to look at but the airport here was moved in 1976 and these maps have it in its old location. About 4 miles in the wrong direction. Too bad I really wanted to like this app..Version: 1.16
✗ Doesn’t support basic GPX TracksI can’t believe I paid $10 for this app. It’s so poorly supported. Why bother with GPX support if you’re only going to support waypoints? Also I got lost once because the app must be closed and re-opened to update one’s GPS location on a map after locking my phone. Otherwise it will tell you that you’re in the same spot until you finally figure out that you’ve been moving while your GPS location hasn’t..Version: 1.16✗ Topo Maps Negative Reviews
