by pn9hbirds on 2021/06/15 02:42
I found this app particularly useful for exploring an island which had poor Internet, and where the open street map data was actually superior to Google maps in some cases. The functionality for dropping pins is also invaluable. I’ve used this to save many great spots and come back to them later.
Out of date
by Lahaina Tom on 2021/06/15 02:14
I clicked to find restaurants near my home and the app led me to a restaurant that’s been out of business for four years. Then I clicked on grocery store near me and it showed me a coffee shop that had moved to years ago away from the grocery store. That was enough for me, I deleted the app without looking any further

Not Intuitive
by Gmatrixman on 2021/06/12 05:05
Very difficult to navigate the settings. I can’t type in an address. Just a street. And sometimes there are many streets with the same name. So I couldn’t even type in my home address when I tested this app. That’s not good. That made the map meaningless. There are better apps.
Love it, but issues in Puerto Rico
by SuperCatBug on 2021/06/11 20:52
Worked pretty well, but two issues recently. 1) it quit working and showed a gray arrow with incomplete circle around it. Restarting app did not fix it. I reinstalled the app but it came back. Unsure what’s going on…I have iPhone 11. Fortunately my daughter had her iPhone (model se) and it was ok. 2) it took us on a route that’s clearly (in hindsight) an old road that should not have been used. Wish maps.me directed us to just maintained roads. Love to have a map when I don’t have cell service. That’s so great.

Recent app updates have removed useful features
by AnsonL on 2021/06/06 20:15
GPX support for viewing tracks was removed at some point and now I can no longer view track files. Offline maps are great for hiking. Would be great if users are able to import geoTIFF and geoPDF map images or topomaps to overlay on the map. This would be the killer outdoors and research app with that option.

by Jomarei on 2021/05/09 20:17
This app is my favourite navigation vehicle. Recently introduced altitude lines make it a sound competitor to specialised trekking apps. Only a few countries like China and Switzerland have more detailed off road maps available. In Africa, topographical details are plentiful but the overall navigation is a bit difficult. Worldwide, in cities and densely populated areas I still need to use the main competitor to get the whole picture. However, the app has been improving constantly. Pins and bookmarks are easy to put and to edit. It is available off line. It contains an amazing amount of off road details, even if they are not always completely described and searchable. For example, the Sentiero Italia crosses Sardenia from north to south. But only a small part appears as search result. Which is still way better than the competitor which has proved itself more or less useless off road. If I were the developer I would concentrate on including all available accommodations (in the right place!), including small stuff, campsites, and remote places, make them fully searchable - and become the ultimate global navigation app for outdoor activities. In a way it already has reached that status.

no ads and in-app purchases! and yes it's really free.
by Casey In LA on 2017/12/14 05:29
This free app is already at the top of the heap simply because it has no ads and in-app purchases. But moreover, it's actually useful! You can use this without an internet connection. This means if you're a cheapskate like me and don't have a data plan, you can still use this. After downloading this app at home, just download the maps you need. The maps are detailed with many POI's included. It'll also create a route from your current location to a destination on the map. It's better than CityMaps2Go which I used before until it started charging a fee. There are a few things I wish they change. First, the name. It doesn't conform with other app names. Second, the icon color. Green is usually for chatting apps like Message and FaceTime. And third, either the arrow color or route color need to change when trying to follow a route on the map. Both the arrow color and route color are the same color blue and it's difficult to see where you are along the route. Other than these things, this app is perfect.
I love this app
by Abby and Sydney on 2018/08/27 06:19
I just got back from a two week road trip in Norway. I live in the US and was not wanting to buy an international plan for data. I downloaded this app after I read that it doesn’t use WiFi or data. The minute that we got into our rental car and we’re trying to find out how to get to our hotel I turned on this app. I put in the town name and a bunch of option popped up, including hotels, restaurants and sightseeing opportunities. Still being new to the app I was waiting for an error message to pop saying I needed to connect to a server. Fast forward to the last day of vacation. We traveled over 3,500 miles in Norway, Finland and Sweden and every time this app took us to the place we wanted to be. This entire vacation was stress free and we didn’t have to worry about using the gigantic paper maps when we got lost. If your planning on traveling to a country or location that you know you won’t have service or your like me and does not want to pay extra charges for an international plan download this app.
The international companion that saves you money
by Giantmike13 on 2019/03/11 00:17
Do you like saving money on international trips? If so, this app is a must. I found it before our 2 week trip to Chile. On that trip, we rented a car and drove 2100 kilometers. In all of that driving, we encountered one waypoint the map didn’t have, and another that was off by two blocks. Because of the completely offline nature of maps and waypoints and directions, we only had to enable cellular once in that two weeks to find that waypoint that was off by two blocks. So just $10 to Verizon for travel pass, instead of the $140 we likely would have paid. One complaint is the turn by turn directions. They could use some tweaking. As is, they sometimes cause you to blow past turns and take a U-turn. Not because of the diver, but because the route did that. It was weird. Also, the voice wasn’t too good at announcing the turns, but luckily my wife was.
Best travel app, can’t get lost
by soquilily on 2020/03/05 18:37
This is by far the best map app I have ever used. I’ve used it frequently for international travel (South America, Europe, and North America) and in remote places where I don’t always have a cell phone signal. You can download the map of the area ahead of time and use it in airplane mode. It even navigates in airplane mode! The maps are really detailed and you can zoom in to see anything, even things like small hiking paths, monuments, historic ruins, waterfalls, in addition to the usual street names and building names, etc. It’s easy to add pins of various colors so I use it both as a planning tool, and I also mark the places I’ve been and liked and may want to come back to, such as restaurants, shops, natural parks, etc. The interface is easy to use as well. Highly recommend.
GREAT idea but needs LOTS of work
by Kyle00428 on 2017/12/04 20:12
I love the idea of this app - especially as a NYC dweller who always finds myself needing to look up destinations on the subway with no internet connection. I downloaded the NYC map and then tried searching for a destination. Even though I had internet connection, it couldn’t find ANY locations for names of businesses I typed in... frequent destinations that show up #1 on a simple Google search. So I tried to type in the address, which is extremely annoying in an age where no one memorizes addresses or phone numbers anymore, but it literally couldn’t find ANY address. Not a single one. Finally, your nail in the coffin was that there’s zero support for subway directions, which is the only way I get around. A LOT of people in NYC could seriously benefit from this app (since lack of internet on the subway drives us all nuts) but not without transit directions, and DEFINITELY not if you can’t find anything. I’ll revise this rating if you get functionality, because I want this app so badly and would even pay for it, but honestly it’s not ready so I’m deleting it.
Great but not perfect
by Pmenconi on 2020/01/14 11:11
This is a wonderful app for travelers! Download the maps for the areas you need, and forget about a data connection, all the info needed is stored on your device. Update, download, and delete maps as you need. Set waypoints / pins at your location and never get lost agin (hopefully!). I like it particularly for walking. I would give it 5 stars if not for one little problem. Once a route is started an arrow appears that points in the direction to head. Driven by the compass this feature works even when you are not moving. If it worked properly this would be a 5 star app, no question about it. Even without this feature I’d give it 4 stars. But the arrow ALWAYS points in the WRONG DIRECTION. it did that years ago on my iPhone 5; it did it with my SE, and now it’s the same on my 7 Plus. It’s not a feature, it’s a bug that has persisted across many updates and several hardware changes. So, 3 stars. It’s still a great mapping app, though.
New version destroyed the app
by JeroldR on 2020/12/20 10:22
I wish there were a way to go back to the prior version. While the new version (11.0.0) may have "pretty" maps, it has removed the ability to navigate with north up, so now the map spins around crazily while driving. Also seems to be 3D navigation only, not flat map, so you can no longer judge distances by looking. It no longer downloads maps if the screen locks, so you have to babysit while downloading, constantly tapping the screen to avoid auto lock. Downloads take forever - I am at a location with high speed fibre optic internet, and each map takes 15-20 minutes to download. Prepping for a road trip across South Africa where many routes have no cell coverage and the app does not let me download three of the nine provinces. The app no longer tells the download sizes, so I cannot make an informed decision about downloading over data vs wifi. The developers seem to be living in some sort of wonderful bubble with lots of wifi and complete cell coverage, unlike much of the real world. Disappointed.
I need other features, ...
by Bad apple? on 2020/07/05 08:47
Darn, thought I had found the map I need, ... guess not, ... this is missing things that a number of other maps already have, ... but is “supposed” to have stuff for hikers, outdoorsmen, (kayak fishing), ... like the location of “all” boat ramps, put in/take out points, marina repair, etcetera, ... for canoeing, kayaking, or float tube drifting, ... And I also need a marine version, that would include specific features, like area weather reports, current flow, depth charts, & user feedback notations for waypoints, ... in addition to including time of day moon/sun rise charts, ...Sure! Having hiking trail info would be great, I guess, but being able to also camp, fish, clean, & cook, plus places to rest overnite, including temporary shelters, would be a max enjoyable experience, ... maybe the developers could actually manage something of this magnitude? But then maybe not, I’ll have to stick to my Google maps for now I s’pose, .., great, but not detailed enough for me, ...
Life saver!
by Vietxshorty on 2018/08/08 01:33
I live in New England. My husband and I traveled to Vietnam for two weeks. We didn’t have a phone plan and we were able to connect to WiFi everywhere we went. But for the times we didn’t have WiFi this app was a life saver! It didn’t use any of our data and it gave us such great directions. We actually had more fun and seen more things because of it. With this app we purposely got lost because we knew that we can use it to get back to our hotel. It allowed us a more carefree travel experience. I recommend this app to so many other tourists while we were away and my own friends before they went on their trip. Love love love it!
Apple Maps
by Arnando's Review on 2018/11/29 16:46
The Maps app that comes with every Apple phone is a pretty normal navigation app, you have your different views of the map, walking, driving, and more forms of transport. But, that’s it, it’s just a normal maps app with not much added to it, which is disappointing. It will definitely get you where you need to go with a very ordinary display, that isn’t too bad and with pretty good recommended routes. Now, there are some unique features to the Apple maps, you can do a flyover tour, which will show you a view of your desire from a view that resembles that of one you would see from a plane. The Apple maps app is useful and good enough for everyday travel, despite it’s very ordinary features, I recommend you use it if you have no time to download anything else.
Doesn’t work with Apple CarPlay
by SFC44E on 2020/10/12 17:53
Was recently on two trips where I’d lost WiFi and cellular data. I’ve downloaded many state maps and all of those I was traveling through. But when I tried to use this app with CarPlay, all I could get was a blank screen. Thankfully, I had a route designated through Waze and Google Maps. Received a response from the app developer stating to open the app on my iPhone before opening it on CarPlay. I did this and it worked. I’d become so accustomed to not having to do that with other map apps that it didn’t occur to me to try it. The app developer said this issue will be resolved in later update. So, I’m changing my review from 3 to 5 stars.
Great for travel
by AGS1440 on 2020/04/17 16:44
As someone who does lots of traveling to different countries, and as someone who has even moved to several different countries, I can really say that this app is a lifesaver. The fact that you can navigate without phone service is truly needed when you’re somewhere with limited WiFi, your phone plan doesn’t reach to that country/place, etc. This is also really good for solo travelers. I feel a lot more comfortable knowing I can use this app to navigate, rather than relying on written directions with the risk of making a wrong turn and getting lost. It’s way better than any other offline maps you’ll download. Easier, faster, and smarter.
Very good offline map
by Jjjjjjjjjjjj3568536 on 2018/08/13 10:10
Used this in a recent trip to Italy, including several smaller cities. Downloaded “the entire country”. Worked great at navigating around the city/village including the smaller ones. Also has a pretty good database of hotels, restaurants, destinations, etc. Some points for improvement (though this is still by far the best offline map app I’ve seen): GPS struggles a bit when “between cities” ie it thinks you are still in the previous city. We were using trains, boat, etc so not really an issue but it might be a problem if you are driving yourself. The search engine for the database of restaurants could use some improvement. It’s very specific on spelling and word order ie “ristorante simbiosi” vs just “simbiosi”. It doesn’t like navigating to a “street address” or “point on the map” which was sometimes a problem in smaller cities where the database didn’t include a restaurant that a guide recommended. Still overall the best offline map app that I’ve used, especially as it includes maps/data for an entire country not just the biggest cities.
Amazing Trip saver map app
by Deb.4444 on 2019/08/03 03:39
I read about this app on trip advisor regarding traveling. I was going to Cuba where there is no phone service or internet for travelers. I downloaded the map of Cuba prior to my trip and saved all the points of interest. I used it every day it was my GPS. One time we were walking the wrong way and since it shows us walking we were able to right away turn around and head the right way. This offline map showed us everything where the hotels were, the restaurants and places of interest. Going to Europe next month and taking this app with me!! It is amazing and free wow!!!!
Offline capabilities are great but a few problems
by Kampcachefis on 2018/05/06 18:25
I like this app. The ability to download offline maps is really great. The only problem is that you can’t search for street addresses, only for attractions, recreational areas, etc. You can add a custom pin on a map in which it will navigate to you, but if you don’t know where it is, you can’t. Also the ETA to certain destinations can be off, especially offline. Unlike Google Maps, biking and walking directions are available offline. The navigation system is not the best but works. Unless you walk or bike a lot, or want to download a very large area (like an entire country), I would recommend downloading an offline map with Google Maps, but in any other situation I would recommend this app.
Great app!
by Pgmark1 on 2018/02/13 05:56
This app is wonderful for traveling! With it, I was able to find everything I needed and get where I wanted to go. The ability to put pins on the map was invaluable and well worth the cost. It also told me how far it was to certain places, which was nice. It also helped me find restaurants and gas stations, which was really helpful when traveling in an unfamiliar area. The ability to access maps offline was extremely useful. In sure I'll be using this again in my future travels. Unfortunately it does have some problems. While using the navigation function, it misled us while driving. Also, navigation using public transportation doesn't work at all.
Make sure you always have data available!
by Lanc Local on 2020/06/11 19:15
I've had this on my phone for a long time. However, recently I was in an area with no service. I decided to use it to find my way since it doesn't require service to work. But, unless it already has the local detail map downloaded, it will always pop up a notification box asking you to download the local map. Thus making it absolutely useless. If you zoom out far enough it doesn't ask, only if you zoom in does it require the map to be downloaded. I recommend that if there's no data at least allow you to say not now or select no service available and continue on instead of having to give up and use the sun as a reference point.
Best offline navigation app
by mackie cheese on 2018/12/27 21:20
This is an awesome app. I would give it 5 stars if they change one thing. The navigation is terrible in one aspect. It tells you to turn at every curve. Where there’s no alternative option. Which is really annoying and potentially confusing. Especially when it tells you to go around a curve that’s just a few feet away from a possible turn. Everyone knows you keep following the road you’re on until you need to turn. They need to avoid extra directions that aren’t needed and focus on giving clear turns when you actually turn. I end up not paying attention especially on curvy roads and then miss a turn because it always says to turn to go around a curve. Also a direct 90 degree turn is NOT a slight right/left.
Great when you don’t have data service
by bwmoore22 on 2019/02/11 14:41
I originally got this for overseas travel when I would have my phone in airplane mode most of the time due to data costs. This app got me back to the hotel in Albacete, Spain when I got lost. I now live in a rural area that does not have full cell coverage, and I’ve come to love it even more. The search functions are not great for common vernacular place names, but are getting progressively much better. It works pretty well for standardized, formal place names. The routing is not traffic-aware, but when you can’t get a cell connection, traffic is probably not a problem.
Fabulous Travel App
by PoodleMac on 2018/09/05 07:25
Saved me so many times when not able to access wireless and use maps. I stored destination maps onto my phone before heading out each day and was able to track location and progress as I wandered around small villages in Provence. It is possible to drop a pin to find your way back to a location (think rental car) which is a major relief. After the trip I had pins saved in all the villages to correspond to my photos...that helped. It was fun to watch the little arrow navigate along the road and spin in confusion around the traffic circles in France. Best travel app ever!
This app saved us.
by sfads on 2018/08/27 02:56
I just got back from a 3 week cycle trip to Iceland and nothing was more helpful in that time than this app. We found out about it from a couple after we bumbled through our first few days using other downloaded maps. The fact that you can download an area and use it to give directions offline is amazing. Things are labeled on these maps so well. If you’re going to travel I would highly recommend this. Even for around town it’s replaced google maps for me. If you’re on the fence just take the jump and try this out, you’ll love it.
Great for travel
by eugenemirman on 2018/12/19 19:16
I used this app for Southeast Asia last November for 7 weeks, it made my life much easier I never once needed cell service I was able to download areas over WiFi easily and then I was set. I highly recommend this app for the traveler. I also used it on a couple occasions as a tracker, while kayaking In Hua long bay I left the tracker on and was able to navigate many miles and still find the boat in the middle of a hundred islands ( probably would have never found it) and made me feel very confident I could find my way back many times throughout my travels. Thanks maps me.
Updated: Latest update resolves the horrible prior release
by skwaustin on 2021/01/03 01:00
Update: Most recent update seems to have fixed all of the issues including switching back to OpenStreetMap for data instead of MapBox. Not sure what happened with the previous release, but the devs seemed to have had a mea culpa. — Version 2.0 is frustratingly buggy. Search seems to be broken. Searches for addresses never find any results. More embarrassingly, searching for cities and towns is hit or miss, even major centers. If a city shows up on the map, why doesn’t search find it? Switching between layers inevitably results in a blank map that may or may not resolve itself without restarting the app. The ability to download offline maps for entire states or countries appears to be gone. You have to select every map individually. New design is fine, but is overshadowed by functional problems. A shame since this was my go to app for offline maps.
Old version was better
by miyashinits on 2018/05/20 11:47
### May 20, 2018 ### The app seems to be draining battery, so I try not to use the app when battery level is low. ### Original Post ### I liked the old version of the app much better than the new one. The old one allowed me to download small data without downloading the data for navigation, and the old one did not ask me to turn on the location service every time when I launched the app. The new one forces me to download large data and keeps asking me to turn on the location service. If this map can be used offline, I do not know why the app keeps asking me to turn on the location service. I am very disappointed with the new one (1 star), but it may be still better than other offline map apps (+ 1star).
AWESOME APP!
by mjmjlm on 2019/05/22 14:35
I looked for an app that I thought would work for our trip to Europe. Well, I am thoroughly blown away at this one. We have been driving in many remote areas and it has been spot on the whole time. It shows even the smallest of roads in the Slovenian countryside in villages that are maybe 10 houses. It's hasn't let me down once in 2 weeks. We are now in Venice and it's a godsend with all of the information that is packed into the downloaded files. Being able to still know where you are offline is priceless. I highly recommend this app.
Pretty worthless for a nav app
by xgh on 2018/07/14 05:46
Unable to search for a specific address. It will find a street. But where on that street you want to go is up to you. So you have to know where you're going and perhaps use the app for routing and turn by turn. Even that is a pain for data entry as you need to enter a cross street. Well, again you have to know where you want to go before you can enter the cross street it's near. As the GIS maps I'm familiar with have address capability, my curiosity got to me. Seems apps that use GIS addresses are widgets or plug-ins, computer based and require the internet (not off-line). So don't expect this app to be updated for address capability. 2 stars is somewhat of a gift. For me, the app is useless. I frankly don't get the favorable reviews.
Excellent for a free app
by Lainee_ca on 2020/07/04 02:57
Due to COVID-19 I have had to go to a bare bones cell phone plan and I have used this several times to get home from various places. I use the iPhone maps app to download directions on WiFi at home and the use this app to get me most of the way home. No, I can’t tell it to take me home but I can tell it to take me to my local grocery store and once I am that close to home I can just take the route I know. So far I haven’t had to turn on cellular data and use the iPhone maps app to get headed in the right direction.
Can't bring back the list of search results.
by Anticwar on 2017/11/22 20:57
When I search for a starbucks for example: A list comes up with all the shops. I select one from the list and it displays it on a map. After I select one from the list, I can't go back to the list of search results. Please fix! And also, if possible, when in search results list view, to include a compass arrows in each row which will point towards all these particular locations. Just like the compass arrow that shows up on the bottom right corner after I select an item from search results.
Remarkably accurate and rich with info
by Tonito2019 on 2019/02/25 21:24
We downloaded and used the Cuba version of the app, given the issues with internet access. It was excellent - always at the ready with nearby cafes, restaurants and historical sites, complete with user ratings and reviews. Super accurate, and was somehow able to know my location using some sort of location aware system even though my data was completely off. I used it with Cuban Taxi drivers who didn’t exactly know their way to certain addresses. Great tool!
DOWNLOAD THIS APP
by tu.es.belle on 2018/11/20 20:56
I’m traveling in Paris right now and didn’t want to turn on my data, so I was looking for a good maps app to use while here. Well folks look no further. This app has very detailed and accurate maps, great walking directions, the ability to search for different things, and the great this is I haven’t had to turn off airplane mode the entire time I’ve been here. If you are going to Europe and don’t want to spend money on international data, this app is 100% the best offline maps app out there!
Needs some base functionality
by Dburke80888888 on 2019/05/11 19:29
Used this app for two days driving in England and several things became apparent. Presenting the next road information is important for roundabouts and timing before the turn would help! Several times I was notified about a turn at the turn. And even road information in large scale is hard to see and an hour later that information stopped displaying. Information about the roundabout’s name is completely pointless as it doesn’t help the driver while navigating in the roundabout. And lastly speed of the current road helpful especially when approaching a speed camera.
Love this app
by ck 350 on 2018/11/30 17:14
Love this app. I use it on vacation and it keeps us from getting lost when there is no WiFi. The maps do take up a lot of memory, but I don’t care about that because I usually have memory to spare. It gives you walking, driving, bicycling and transit estimated travel times. It allows you to mark and name your own places, such as ‘our hotel’ or ‘flea market’ or ‘dress shop’. It has saved us so many times that I can’t say enough good things about it. We use it extensively in Europe and at home.
Wonderful!
by T-Chair on 2019/06/29 22:28
Sometimes you have to do a little research (know more than one name for areas or regions) to hone in on a specific road, or venue, but it’s SO wonderful to be able to see yourself move, walking a block, or zooming along in a TGV, in relationship to the map, large or small scale, wifi and cellular free!! Be sure to download ALL the maps you need and checkout the setting-options (thank you zoom-in font-size, and suggestions in the area!) This program is a must-have when traveling!
Great flexibility, needs customer support
by RobbyRobbyPabs on 2019/04/08 23:37
This app is great. I use it much more than Google Maps, particularly for the ability to easily and reliably save and edit pins I place on the map while traveling in areas without a good cellular network. The search function is lacking, though, as it uses an engine that is propagated by data added mainly by users, so often times it won’t find places I search for. This doesn’t keep me from using the app constantly, though.
Largely amazing, but device sync is disappointing
by Prometheas on 2019/05/06 10:13
True to its word, this app is pretty much a wonder, completely offline mapping solution. From locations to routes and bookmarks, it’s got the full slew of things you’d likely want. My only gripe is that device sync is awful. I’ve been traveling Southeast Asia for the last three months, and really wanted to do my planning in the evenings at the hostel on my iPad, and have everything all set for the next day to access from my phone. As it stands now, even overnight isn’t a guarantee for bookmark syncing. In 2019 that feels silly.
Simply Stupendous
by Pajeot on 2021/04/11 11:32
While I’d like to see a visually more appealing map, such as GoogleMaps, and wish this were the standard everybody uses (so more shops, restaurants, hotels and more were easily identifiable—and I could leave reviews here rather than on GoogleMaps—this mapping app gives me a combination of information for walking trails and dirt roads, and more, that I find nowhere else, and still also provides quite a lot of useful detail for business establishments—all offline. A marvelous traveling companion. Well done!
None better than this
by Hammerdone on 2019/01/12 13:37
Great detail, often more useful than (even when available) Apple maps. More attractive than Google maps. Takes up very little space. Enough landmarks and restaurants/hotels to help identify different kinds of neighborhoods. Have used the app in upscale cities, back country wayfinding, third world ratty places and have not found any reason to complain. Caution: as with ALL mapping ‘ware, don’t bet your life on it. Have found some places marked way off base.
Where has this program been all my life.
by Alex.Forrester on 2019/03/31 13:35
I have been looking for an app for your offline nav for a while. I was satisfied with Google maps offline features till I figured out it can't download about 50% of the world. This program solves all of that. Another person reviewing had said that it had no ads or in app purchases. This is inaccurate, but the ads are very unnoticeable, and for a price of $4 a year or seems like a good deal to support an app like this.
AWESOME APP-DOWNLOAD IT ...
by EDandT on 2019/09/20 06:27
My son used this app when he was traveling throughout Asia last year. He loved it and it is so useful. He strongly recommended it for our current trip to Greece . It’s a godsend. On Santorini it showed the small unnamed walking paths ; The points of interest , shops and restaurants. Best of all , good places to watch the sun setting while drinking wine and eating dinner. We used this on Crete while driving . It gave us estimated time of arrival, length of trip and mileage. Did I tell you I love this app. 😊 My new best friend for road Trips.
Search doesn’t work. Annoying warnings.
by Nuka Kola on 2018/03/13 22:33
This app is becoming more and more of a marketing platform, while obvious improvement requests by users are simply shunned. The infantile location services warning, for example, has been plaguing the app for years now, and for absolutely no good reason. Despite many reviews calling to remove this and despite writing the devs on several occasions, this silliness persists. Search, the second most important feature after graphical map display, is nearly useless. It displays results that are hundreds of kilometers away AND don’t match the typed term, above those that are clearly there, are a better match, and are way closer to you. This has been pointed out to the devs a hundred times, and with every other update they claim to “fix” or “improve” the search, yet nothing. Zero progress. Instead they are working on monetizing this thing and displaying ads related to places and businesses. Typical money grabbing team with zero regard for the end user. Stay away. Five star reviews are probably from their own employees and friends.
So useful!
by Harleyquinn57 on 2021/03/25 17:29
So I’m not sure exactly how they make money, but this app has the best privacy policy I’ve seen for a navigational app. I hate how much apps like google maps track you and gather a ton of unnecessary personal information. Plus you can use this one offline (download the maps first!) which is super handy when you’re traveling out of the country or in areas with bad service. It’s free, useful, and seems like it’s from a good company. What more could you want?
Really Handy App With Odd Ideas About Navigation
by -0112358- on 2018/05/01 14:32
I love having this; I first downloaded it before a cross-country road trip, so I would always have a map and navigation if I had GPS. You can add custom locations, and the search function is quite good. On the other hand, the directions the app gives make absolutely no real-world sense, and on top of that, the estimated travel times are delusional - 57 minutes to travel 65 miles, driving solely on state highways and back roads, for example. It wold be wonderful if it could deliver on its promised travel times... Anyways, well worth downloading despite that.
Lifesaver when on a trip to Berlin!
by Zwilling from NY on 2019/10/20 18:19
I saw this maps app recommended on TripAdvisor, so I downloaded a map of Berlin for a recent trip there, and lemme tell you, it never failed me!!! I had very limited WiFi access in Germany, so I relied on this map app heavily. I was not able to download a Google offline map for some reason. By this app gave me no technical difficulties whatsoever. I found restaurants to eat at in Berlin every night based on the map from this app. Highly recommended!!!!!
Horrible changes
by nur Beschreibung kein Spiel on 2020/12/26 09:49
The new version 11 is horrible. It seems like most of the former philosophy can been abandoned. The tool is now very slow and non-reactive. It takes ages to gain online access - which is now apparently required for many of the new and unnecessary features. Oofline maps only contain incomplete information - this was much better before. Map download is now awckward - apparently new sub folders with maps have been created. One needs to go to NOSTALGIC to see a decent distinction between main roads and smaller paths. This has once been a wonderful tool for offine navigation, precise and more informed than others. Now it is a gimmick for shopping and money making. Shame on you.
Pretty good!
by Tanpeg99 on 2019/12/30 22:14
My biggest complaint with this app is in smaller places, you can’t directly enter the exact address you want to find. You have to sorta pinpoint an estimated location and find it which can make things kinda confusing. Besides that, it’s really helpful for people who are trying to either save on data, or don’t have a data plan at all and need help navigating! The layout is very well planned, everything is very easy to look at and understand without instructions, and many more pros!
Indispensable on a trip especially using no data
by This game is dumb!! on 2018/08/31 07:41
This app has saved me so many times. I don’t know how it does it but it can find me anywhere even with my data turned off. Even on airplane mode. It finds landmarks. It routes them. It is a compass. I can watch us walking down the street. And we can find where we need to go. Indispensable app for trips especially outside one’s data range if trying to save money by being offline.
Great once you learn how to use it!
by mb552 on 2019/10/12 11:03
This map has better detail than Google maps so it’s easier to read streets and use it more like a paper map. The navigation pointer also turns as you move, showing which direction you are facing. However using the map offline is sometimes frustrating, waiting for it to “catch up” with where you are. And sometimes it can’t find a place you type in which Google maps finds easily, so then I have to switch mapping sources.
Stop sending notifications
by n3rfus on 2017/12/26 21:01
An otherwise great app that doesn’t stop sending you insipid notifications. Today’s had a cat-with-hearts-for-eyes emoji. This was mostly useful while traveling in Southeast Asia, but even with data on, the point of interest and address search frequently failed to find the right spot while google or Apple maps succeeded. But if what you need is a generally accurate map of streets, including small streets, while traveling abroad and trying to stay off data roaming (or unable to use wifi/cellular data), this app fits the bill.

by pn9hbirds on 2021/06/15 02:42
I found this app particularly useful for exploring an island which had poor Internet, and where the open street map data was actually superior to Google maps in some cases. The functionality for dropping pins is also invaluable. I’ve used this to save many great spots and come back to them later.
Out of date
by Lahaina Tom on 2021/06/15 02:14
I clicked to find restaurants near my home and the app led me to a restaurant that’s been out of business for four years. Then I clicked on grocery store near me and it showed me a coffee shop that had moved to years ago away from the grocery store. That was enough for me, I deleted the app without looking any further

Not Intuitive
by Gmatrixman on 2021/06/12 05:05
Very difficult to navigate the settings. I can’t type in an address. Just a street. And sometimes there are many streets with the same name. So I couldn’t even type in my home address when I tested this app. That’s not good. That made the map meaningless. There are better apps.
Love it, but issues in Puerto Rico
by SuperCatBug on 2021/06/11 20:52
Worked pretty well, but two issues recently. 1) it quit working and showed a gray arrow with incomplete circle around it. Restarting app did not fix it. I reinstalled the app but it came back. Unsure what’s going on…I have iPhone 11. Fortunately my daughter had her iPhone (model se) and it was ok. 2) it took us on a route that’s clearly (in hindsight) an old road that should not have been used. Wish maps.me directed us to just maintained roads. Love to have a map when I don’t have cell service. That’s so great.

Recent app updates have removed useful features
by AnsonL on 2021/06/06 20:15
GPX support for viewing tracks was removed at some point and now I can no longer view track files. Offline maps are great for hiking. Would be great if users are able to import geoTIFF and geoPDF map images or topomaps to overlay on the map. This would be the killer outdoors and research app with that option.

by Jomarei on 2021/05/09 20:17
This app is my favourite navigation vehicle. Recently introduced altitude lines make it a sound competitor to specialised trekking apps. Only a few countries like China and Switzerland have more detailed off road maps available. In Africa, topographical details are plentiful but the overall navigation is a bit difficult. Worldwide, in cities and densely populated areas I still need to use the main competitor to get the whole picture. However, the app has been improving constantly. Pins and bookmarks are easy to put and to edit. It is available off line. It contains an amazing amount of off road details, even if they are not always completely described and searchable. For example, the Sentiero Italia crosses Sardenia from north to south. But only a small part appears as search result. Which is still way better than the competitor which has proved itself more or less useless off road. If I were the developer I would concentrate on including all available accommodations (in the right place!), including small stuff, campsites, and remote places, make them fully searchable - and become the ultimate global navigation app for outdoor activities. In a way it already has reached that status.

no ads and in-app purchases! and yes it's really free.
by Casey In LA on 2017/12/14 05:29
This free app is already at the top of the heap simply because it has no ads and in-app purchases. But moreover, it's actually useful! You can use this without an internet connection. This means if you're a cheapskate like me and don't have a data plan, you can still use this. After downloading this app at home, just download the maps you need. The maps are detailed with many POI's included. It'll also create a route from your current location to a destination on the map. It's better than CityMaps2Go which I used before until it started charging a fee. There are a few things I wish they change. First, the name. It doesn't conform with other app names. Second, the icon color. Green is usually for chatting apps like Message and FaceTime. And third, either the arrow color or route color need to change when trying to follow a route on the map. Both the arrow color and route color are the same color blue and it's difficult to see where you are along the route. Other than these things, this app is perfect.
I love this app
by Abby and Sydney on 2018/08/27 06:19
I just got back from a two week road trip in Norway. I live in the US and was not wanting to buy an international plan for data. I downloaded this app after I read that it doesn’t use WiFi or data. The minute that we got into our rental car and we’re trying to find out how to get to our hotel I turned on this app. I put in the town name and a bunch of option popped up, including hotels, restaurants and sightseeing opportunities. Still being new to the app I was waiting for an error message to pop saying I needed to connect to a server. Fast forward to the last day of vacation. We traveled over 3,500 miles in Norway, Finland and Sweden and every time this app took us to the place we wanted to be. This entire vacation was stress free and we didn’t have to worry about using the gigantic paper maps when we got lost. If your planning on traveling to a country or location that you know you won’t have service or your like me and does not want to pay extra charges for an international plan download this app.
The international companion that saves you money
by Giantmike13 on 2019/03/11 00:17
Do you like saving money on international trips? If so, this app is a must. I found it before our 2 week trip to Chile. On that trip, we rented a car and drove 2100 kilometers. In all of that driving, we encountered one waypoint the map didn’t have, and another that was off by two blocks. Because of the completely offline nature of maps and waypoints and directions, we only had to enable cellular once in that two weeks to find that waypoint that was off by two blocks. So just $10 to Verizon for travel pass, instead of the $140 we likely would have paid. One complaint is the turn by turn directions. They could use some tweaking. As is, they sometimes cause you to blow past turns and take a U-turn. Not because of the diver, but because the route did that. It was weird. Also, the voice wasn’t too good at announcing the turns, but luckily my wife was.
Best travel app, can’t get lost
by soquilily on 2020/03/05 18:37
This is by far the best map app I have ever used. I’ve used it frequently for international travel (South America, Europe, and North America) and in remote places where I don’t always have a cell phone signal. You can download the map of the area ahead of time and use it in airplane mode. It even navigates in airplane mode! The maps are really detailed and you can zoom in to see anything, even things like small hiking paths, monuments, historic ruins, waterfalls, in addition to the usual street names and building names, etc. It’s easy to add pins of various colors so I use it both as a planning tool, and I also mark the places I’ve been and liked and may want to come back to, such as restaurants, shops, natural parks, etc. The interface is easy to use as well. Highly recommend.
GREAT idea but needs LOTS of work
by Kyle00428 on 2017/12/04 20:12
I love the idea of this app - especially as a NYC dweller who always finds myself needing to look up destinations on the subway with no internet connection. I downloaded the NYC map and then tried searching for a destination. Even though I had internet connection, it couldn’t find ANY locations for names of businesses I typed in... frequent destinations that show up #1 on a simple Google search. So I tried to type in the address, which is extremely annoying in an age where no one memorizes addresses or phone numbers anymore, but it literally couldn’t find ANY address. Not a single one. Finally, your nail in the coffin was that there’s zero support for subway directions, which is the only way I get around. A LOT of people in NYC could seriously benefit from this app (since lack of internet on the subway drives us all nuts) but not without transit directions, and DEFINITELY not if you can’t find anything. I’ll revise this rating if you get functionality, because I want this app so badly and would even pay for it, but honestly it’s not ready so I’m deleting it.
Great but not perfect
by Pmenconi on 2020/01/14 11:11
This is a wonderful app for travelers! Download the maps for the areas you need, and forget about a data connection, all the info needed is stored on your device. Update, download, and delete maps as you need. Set waypoints / pins at your location and never get lost agin (hopefully!). I like it particularly for walking. I would give it 5 stars if not for one little problem. Once a route is started an arrow appears that points in the direction to head. Driven by the compass this feature works even when you are not moving. If it worked properly this would be a 5 star app, no question about it. Even without this feature I’d give it 4 stars. But the arrow ALWAYS points in the WRONG DIRECTION. it did that years ago on my iPhone 5; it did it with my SE, and now it’s the same on my 7 Plus. It’s not a feature, it’s a bug that has persisted across many updates and several hardware changes. So, 3 stars. It’s still a great mapping app, though.
New version destroyed the app
by JeroldR on 2020/12/20 10:22
I wish there were a way to go back to the prior version. While the new version (11.0.0) may have "pretty" maps, it has removed the ability to navigate with north up, so now the map spins around crazily while driving. Also seems to be 3D navigation only, not flat map, so you can no longer judge distances by looking. It no longer downloads maps if the screen locks, so you have to babysit while downloading, constantly tapping the screen to avoid auto lock. Downloads take forever - I am at a location with high speed fibre optic internet, and each map takes 15-20 minutes to download. Prepping for a road trip across South Africa where many routes have no cell coverage and the app does not let me download three of the nine provinces. The app no longer tells the download sizes, so I cannot make an informed decision about downloading over data vs wifi. The developers seem to be living in some sort of wonderful bubble with lots of wifi and complete cell coverage, unlike much of the real world. Disappointed.
I need other features, ...
by Bad apple? on 2020/07/05 08:47
Darn, thought I had found the map I need, ... guess not, ... this is missing things that a number of other maps already have, ... but is “supposed” to have stuff for hikers, outdoorsmen, (kayak fishing), ... like the location of “all” boat ramps, put in/take out points, marina repair, etcetera, ... for canoeing, kayaking, or float tube drifting, ... And I also need a marine version, that would include specific features, like area weather reports, current flow, depth charts, & user feedback notations for waypoints, ... in addition to including time of day moon/sun rise charts, ...Sure! Having hiking trail info would be great, I guess, but being able to also camp, fish, clean, & cook, plus places to rest overnite, including temporary shelters, would be a max enjoyable experience, ... maybe the developers could actually manage something of this magnitude? But then maybe not, I’ll have to stick to my Google maps for now I s’pose, .., great, but not detailed enough for me, ...
Life saver!
by Vietxshorty on 2018/08/08 01:33
I live in New England. My husband and I traveled to Vietnam for two weeks. We didn’t have a phone plan and we were able to connect to WiFi everywhere we went. But for the times we didn’t have WiFi this app was a life saver! It didn’t use any of our data and it gave us such great directions. We actually had more fun and seen more things because of it. With this app we purposely got lost because we knew that we can use it to get back to our hotel. It allowed us a more carefree travel experience. I recommend this app to so many other tourists while we were away and my own friends before they went on their trip. Love love love it!
Apple Maps
by Arnando's Review on 2018/11/29 16:46
The Maps app that comes with every Apple phone is a pretty normal navigation app, you have your different views of the map, walking, driving, and more forms of transport. But, that’s it, it’s just a normal maps app with not much added to it, which is disappointing. It will definitely get you where you need to go with a very ordinary display, that isn’t too bad and with pretty good recommended routes. Now, there are some unique features to the Apple maps, you can do a flyover tour, which will show you a view of your desire from a view that resembles that of one you would see from a plane. The Apple maps app is useful and good enough for everyday travel, despite it’s very ordinary features, I recommend you use it if you have no time to download anything else.
Doesn’t work with Apple CarPlay
by SFC44E on 2020/10/12 17:53
Was recently on two trips where I’d lost WiFi and cellular data. I’ve downloaded many state maps and all of those I was traveling through. But when I tried to use this app with CarPlay, all I could get was a blank screen. Thankfully, I had a route designated through Waze and Google Maps. Received a response from the app developer stating to open the app on my iPhone before opening it on CarPlay. I did this and it worked. I’d become so accustomed to not having to do that with other map apps that it didn’t occur to me to try it. The app developer said this issue will be resolved in later update. So, I’m changing my review from 3 to 5 stars.
Great for travel
by AGS1440 on 2020/04/17 16:44
As someone who does lots of traveling to different countries, and as someone who has even moved to several different countries, I can really say that this app is a lifesaver. The fact that you can navigate without phone service is truly needed when you’re somewhere with limited WiFi, your phone plan doesn’t reach to that country/place, etc. This is also really good for solo travelers. I feel a lot more comfortable knowing I can use this app to navigate, rather than relying on written directions with the risk of making a wrong turn and getting lost. It’s way better than any other offline maps you’ll download. Easier, faster, and smarter.
Very good offline map
by Jjjjjjjjjjjj3568536 on 2018/08/13 10:10
Used this in a recent trip to Italy, including several smaller cities. Downloaded “the entire country”. Worked great at navigating around the city/village including the smaller ones. Also has a pretty good database of hotels, restaurants, destinations, etc. Some points for improvement (though this is still by far the best offline map app I’ve seen): GPS struggles a bit when “between cities” ie it thinks you are still in the previous city. We were using trains, boat, etc so not really an issue but it might be a problem if you are driving yourself. The search engine for the database of restaurants could use some improvement. It’s very specific on spelling and word order ie “ristorante simbiosi” vs just “simbiosi”. It doesn’t like navigating to a “street address” or “point on the map” which was sometimes a problem in smaller cities where the database didn’t include a restaurant that a guide recommended. Still overall the best offline map app that I’ve used, especially as it includes maps/data for an entire country not just the biggest cities.
Amazing Trip saver map app
by Deb.4444 on 2019/08/03 03:39
I read about this app on trip advisor regarding traveling. I was going to Cuba where there is no phone service or internet for travelers. I downloaded the map of Cuba prior to my trip and saved all the points of interest. I used it every day it was my GPS. One time we were walking the wrong way and since it shows us walking we were able to right away turn around and head the right way. This offline map showed us everything where the hotels were, the restaurants and places of interest. Going to Europe next month and taking this app with me!! It is amazing and free wow!!!!
Offline capabilities are great but a few problems
by Kampcachefis on 2018/05/06 18:25
I like this app. The ability to download offline maps is really great. The only problem is that you can’t search for street addresses, only for attractions, recreational areas, etc. You can add a custom pin on a map in which it will navigate to you, but if you don’t know where it is, you can’t. Also the ETA to certain destinations can be off, especially offline. Unlike Google Maps, biking and walking directions are available offline. The navigation system is not the best but works. Unless you walk or bike a lot, or want to download a very large area (like an entire country), I would recommend downloading an offline map with Google Maps, but in any other situation I would recommend this app.
Great app!
by Pgmark1 on 2018/02/13 05:56
This app is wonderful for traveling! With it, I was able to find everything I needed and get where I wanted to go. The ability to put pins on the map was invaluable and well worth the cost. It also told me how far it was to certain places, which was nice. It also helped me find restaurants and gas stations, which was really helpful when traveling in an unfamiliar area. The ability to access maps offline was extremely useful. In sure I'll be using this again in my future travels. Unfortunately it does have some problems. While using the navigation function, it misled us while driving. Also, navigation using public transportation doesn't work at all.
Make sure you always have data available!
by Lanc Local on 2020/06/11 19:15
I've had this on my phone for a long time. However, recently I was in an area with no service. I decided to use it to find my way since it doesn't require service to work. But, unless it already has the local detail map downloaded, it will always pop up a notification box asking you to download the local map. Thus making it absolutely useless. If you zoom out far enough it doesn't ask, only if you zoom in does it require the map to be downloaded. I recommend that if there's no data at least allow you to say not now or select no service available and continue on instead of having to give up and use the sun as a reference point.
Best offline navigation app
by mackie cheese on 2018/12/27 21:20
This is an awesome app. I would give it 5 stars if they change one thing. The navigation is terrible in one aspect. It tells you to turn at every curve. Where there’s no alternative option. Which is really annoying and potentially confusing. Especially when it tells you to go around a curve that’s just a few feet away from a possible turn. Everyone knows you keep following the road you’re on until you need to turn. They need to avoid extra directions that aren’t needed and focus on giving clear turns when you actually turn. I end up not paying attention especially on curvy roads and then miss a turn because it always says to turn to go around a curve. Also a direct 90 degree turn is NOT a slight right/left.
Great when you don’t have data service
by bwmoore22 on 2019/02/11 14:41
I originally got this for overseas travel when I would have my phone in airplane mode most of the time due to data costs. This app got me back to the hotel in Albacete, Spain when I got lost. I now live in a rural area that does not have full cell coverage, and I’ve come to love it even more. The search functions are not great for common vernacular place names, but are getting progressively much better. It works pretty well for standardized, formal place names. The routing is not traffic-aware, but when you can’t get a cell connection, traffic is probably not a problem.
Fabulous Travel App
by PoodleMac on 2018/09/05 07:25
Saved me so many times when not able to access wireless and use maps. I stored destination maps onto my phone before heading out each day and was able to track location and progress as I wandered around small villages in Provence. It is possible to drop a pin to find your way back to a location (think rental car) which is a major relief. After the trip I had pins saved in all the villages to correspond to my photos...that helped. It was fun to watch the little arrow navigate along the road and spin in confusion around the traffic circles in France. Best travel app ever!
This app saved us.
by sfads on 2018/08/27 02:56
I just got back from a 3 week cycle trip to Iceland and nothing was more helpful in that time than this app. We found out about it from a couple after we bumbled through our first few days using other downloaded maps. The fact that you can download an area and use it to give directions offline is amazing. Things are labeled on these maps so well. If you’re going to travel I would highly recommend this. Even for around town it’s replaced google maps for me. If you’re on the fence just take the jump and try this out, you’ll love it.
Great for travel
by eugenemirman on 2018/12/19 19:16
I used this app for Southeast Asia last November for 7 weeks, it made my life much easier I never once needed cell service I was able to download areas over WiFi easily and then I was set. I highly recommend this app for the traveler. I also used it on a couple occasions as a tracker, while kayaking In Hua long bay I left the tracker on and was able to navigate many miles and still find the boat in the middle of a hundred islands ( probably would have never found it) and made me feel very confident I could find my way back many times throughout my travels. Thanks maps me.
Updated: Latest update resolves the horrible prior release
by skwaustin on 2021/01/03 01:00
Update: Most recent update seems to have fixed all of the issues including switching back to OpenStreetMap for data instead of MapBox. Not sure what happened with the previous release, but the devs seemed to have had a mea culpa. — Version 2.0 is frustratingly buggy. Search seems to be broken. Searches for addresses never find any results. More embarrassingly, searching for cities and towns is hit or miss, even major centers. If a city shows up on the map, why doesn’t search find it? Switching between layers inevitably results in a blank map that may or may not resolve itself without restarting the app. The ability to download offline maps for entire states or countries appears to be gone. You have to select every map individually. New design is fine, but is overshadowed by functional problems. A shame since this was my go to app for offline maps.
Old version was better
by miyashinits on 2018/05/20 11:47
### May 20, 2018 ### The app seems to be draining battery, so I try not to use the app when battery level is low. ### Original Post ### I liked the old version of the app much better than the new one. The old one allowed me to download small data without downloading the data for navigation, and the old one did not ask me to turn on the location service every time when I launched the app. The new one forces me to download large data and keeps asking me to turn on the location service. If this map can be used offline, I do not know why the app keeps asking me to turn on the location service. I am very disappointed with the new one (1 star), but it may be still better than other offline map apps (+ 1star).
AWESOME APP!
by mjmjlm on 2019/05/22 14:35
I looked for an app that I thought would work for our trip to Europe. Well, I am thoroughly blown away at this one. We have been driving in many remote areas and it has been spot on the whole time. It shows even the smallest of roads in the Slovenian countryside in villages that are maybe 10 houses. It's hasn't let me down once in 2 weeks. We are now in Venice and it's a godsend with all of the information that is packed into the downloaded files. Being able to still know where you are offline is priceless. I highly recommend this app.
Pretty worthless for a nav app
by xgh on 2018/07/14 05:46
Unable to search for a specific address. It will find a street. But where on that street you want to go is up to you. So you have to know where you're going and perhaps use the app for routing and turn by turn. Even that is a pain for data entry as you need to enter a cross street. Well, again you have to know where you want to go before you can enter the cross street it's near. As the GIS maps I'm familiar with have address capability, my curiosity got to me. Seems apps that use GIS addresses are widgets or plug-ins, computer based and require the internet (not off-line). So don't expect this app to be updated for address capability. 2 stars is somewhat of a gift. For me, the app is useless. I frankly don't get the favorable reviews.
Excellent for a free app
by Lainee_ca on 2020/07/04 02:57
Due to COVID-19 I have had to go to a bare bones cell phone plan and I have used this several times to get home from various places. I use the iPhone maps app to download directions on WiFi at home and the use this app to get me most of the way home. No, I can’t tell it to take me home but I can tell it to take me to my local grocery store and once I am that close to home I can just take the route I know. So far I haven’t had to turn on cellular data and use the iPhone maps app to get headed in the right direction.
Can't bring back the list of search results.
by Anticwar on 2017/11/22 20:57
When I search for a starbucks for example: A list comes up with all the shops. I select one from the list and it displays it on a map. After I select one from the list, I can't go back to the list of search results. Please fix! And also, if possible, when in search results list view, to include a compass arrows in each row which will point towards all these particular locations. Just like the compass arrow that shows up on the bottom right corner after I select an item from search results.
Remarkably accurate and rich with info
by Tonito2019 on 2019/02/25 21:24
We downloaded and used the Cuba version of the app, given the issues with internet access. It was excellent - always at the ready with nearby cafes, restaurants and historical sites, complete with user ratings and reviews. Super accurate, and was somehow able to know my location using some sort of location aware system even though my data was completely off. I used it with Cuban Taxi drivers who didn’t exactly know their way to certain addresses. Great tool!
DOWNLOAD THIS APP
by tu.es.belle on 2018/11/20 20:56
I’m traveling in Paris right now and didn’t want to turn on my data, so I was looking for a good maps app to use while here. Well folks look no further. This app has very detailed and accurate maps, great walking directions, the ability to search for different things, and the great this is I haven’t had to turn off airplane mode the entire time I’ve been here. If you are going to Europe and don’t want to spend money on international data, this app is 100% the best offline maps app out there!
Needs some base functionality
by Dburke80888888 on 2019/05/11 19:29
Used this app for two days driving in England and several things became apparent. Presenting the next road information is important for roundabouts and timing before the turn would help! Several times I was notified about a turn at the turn. And even road information in large scale is hard to see and an hour later that information stopped displaying. Information about the roundabout’s name is completely pointless as it doesn’t help the driver while navigating in the roundabout. And lastly speed of the current road helpful especially when approaching a speed camera.
Love this app
by ck 350 on 2018/11/30 17:14
Love this app. I use it on vacation and it keeps us from getting lost when there is no WiFi. The maps do take up a lot of memory, but I don’t care about that because I usually have memory to spare. It gives you walking, driving, bicycling and transit estimated travel times. It allows you to mark and name your own places, such as ‘our hotel’ or ‘flea market’ or ‘dress shop’. It has saved us so many times that I can’t say enough good things about it. We use it extensively in Europe and at home.
Wonderful!
by T-Chair on 2019/06/29 22:28
Sometimes you have to do a little research (know more than one name for areas or regions) to hone in on a specific road, or venue, but it’s SO wonderful to be able to see yourself move, walking a block, or zooming along in a TGV, in relationship to the map, large or small scale, wifi and cellular free!! Be sure to download ALL the maps you need and checkout the setting-options (thank you zoom-in font-size, and suggestions in the area!) This program is a must-have when traveling!
Great flexibility, needs customer support
by RobbyRobbyPabs on 2019/04/08 23:37
This app is great. I use it much more than Google Maps, particularly for the ability to easily and reliably save and edit pins I place on the map while traveling in areas without a good cellular network. The search function is lacking, though, as it uses an engine that is propagated by data added mainly by users, so often times it won’t find places I search for. This doesn’t keep me from using the app constantly, though.
Largely amazing, but device sync is disappointing
by Prometheas on 2019/05/06 10:13
True to its word, this app is pretty much a wonder, completely offline mapping solution. From locations to routes and bookmarks, it’s got the full slew of things you’d likely want. My only gripe is that device sync is awful. I’ve been traveling Southeast Asia for the last three months, and really wanted to do my planning in the evenings at the hostel on my iPad, and have everything all set for the next day to access from my phone. As it stands now, even overnight isn’t a guarantee for bookmark syncing. In 2019 that feels silly.
Simply Stupendous
by Pajeot on 2021/04/11 11:32
While I’d like to see a visually more appealing map, such as GoogleMaps, and wish this were the standard everybody uses (so more shops, restaurants, hotels and more were easily identifiable—and I could leave reviews here rather than on GoogleMaps—this mapping app gives me a combination of information for walking trails and dirt roads, and more, that I find nowhere else, and still also provides quite a lot of useful detail for business establishments—all offline. A marvelous traveling companion. Well done!
None better than this
by Hammerdone on 2019/01/12 13:37
Great detail, often more useful than (even when available) Apple maps. More attractive than Google maps. Takes up very little space. Enough landmarks and restaurants/hotels to help identify different kinds of neighborhoods. Have used the app in upscale cities, back country wayfinding, third world ratty places and have not found any reason to complain. Caution: as with ALL mapping ‘ware, don’t bet your life on it. Have found some places marked way off base.
Where has this program been all my life.
by Alex.Forrester on 2019/03/31 13:35
I have been looking for an app for your offline nav for a while. I was satisfied with Google maps offline features till I figured out it can't download about 50% of the world. This program solves all of that. Another person reviewing had said that it had no ads or in app purchases. This is inaccurate, but the ads are very unnoticeable, and for a price of $4 a year or seems like a good deal to support an app like this.
AWESOME APP-DOWNLOAD IT ...
by EDandT on 2019/09/20 06:27
My son used this app when he was traveling throughout Asia last year. He loved it and it is so useful. He strongly recommended it for our current trip to Greece . It’s a godsend. On Santorini it showed the small unnamed walking paths ; The points of interest , shops and restaurants. Best of all , good places to watch the sun setting while drinking wine and eating dinner. We used this on Crete while driving . It gave us estimated time of arrival, length of trip and mileage. Did I tell you I love this app. 😊 My new best friend for road Trips.
Search doesn’t work. Annoying warnings.
by Nuka Kola on 2018/03/13 22:33
This app is becoming more and more of a marketing platform, while obvious improvement requests by users are simply shunned. The infantile location services warning, for example, has been plaguing the app for years now, and for absolutely no good reason. Despite many reviews calling to remove this and despite writing the devs on several occasions, this silliness persists. Search, the second most important feature after graphical map display, is nearly useless. It displays results that are hundreds of kilometers away AND don’t match the typed term, above those that are clearly there, are a better match, and are way closer to you. This has been pointed out to the devs a hundred times, and with every other update they claim to “fix” or “improve” the search, yet nothing. Zero progress. Instead they are working on monetizing this thing and displaying ads related to places and businesses. Typical money grabbing team with zero regard for the end user. Stay away. Five star reviews are probably from their own employees and friends.
So useful!
by Harleyquinn57 on 2021/03/25 17:29
So I’m not sure exactly how they make money, but this app has the best privacy policy I’ve seen for a navigational app. I hate how much apps like google maps track you and gather a ton of unnecessary personal information. Plus you can use this one offline (download the maps first!) which is super handy when you’re traveling out of the country or in areas with bad service. It’s free, useful, and seems like it’s from a good company. What more could you want?
Really Handy App With Odd Ideas About Navigation
by -0112358- on 2018/05/01 14:32
I love having this; I first downloaded it before a cross-country road trip, so I would always have a map and navigation if I had GPS. You can add custom locations, and the search function is quite good. On the other hand, the directions the app gives make absolutely no real-world sense, and on top of that, the estimated travel times are delusional - 57 minutes to travel 65 miles, driving solely on state highways and back roads, for example. It wold be wonderful if it could deliver on its promised travel times... Anyways, well worth downloading despite that.
Lifesaver when on a trip to Berlin!
by Zwilling from NY on 2019/10/20 18:19
I saw this maps app recommended on TripAdvisor, so I downloaded a map of Berlin for a recent trip there, and lemme tell you, it never failed me!!! I had very limited WiFi access in Germany, so I relied on this map app heavily. I was not able to download a Google offline map for some reason. By this app gave me no technical difficulties whatsoever. I found restaurants to eat at in Berlin every night based on the map from this app. Highly recommended!!!!!
Horrible changes
by nur Beschreibung kein Spiel on 2020/12/26 09:49
The new version 11 is horrible. It seems like most of the former philosophy can been abandoned. The tool is now very slow and non-reactive. It takes ages to gain online access - which is now apparently required for many of the new and unnecessary features. Oofline maps only contain incomplete information - this was much better before. Map download is now awckward - apparently new sub folders with maps have been created. One needs to go to NOSTALGIC to see a decent distinction between main roads and smaller paths. This has once been a wonderful tool for offine navigation, precise and more informed than others. Now it is a gimmick for shopping and money making. Shame on you.
Pretty good!
by Tanpeg99 on 2019/12/30 22:14
My biggest complaint with this app is in smaller places, you can’t directly enter the exact address you want to find. You have to sorta pinpoint an estimated location and find it which can make things kinda confusing. Besides that, it’s really helpful for people who are trying to either save on data, or don’t have a data plan at all and need help navigating! The layout is very well planned, everything is very easy to look at and understand without instructions, and many more pros!
Indispensable on a trip especially using no data
by This game is dumb!! on 2018/08/31 07:41
This app has saved me so many times. I don’t know how it does it but it can find me anywhere even with my data turned off. Even on airplane mode. It finds landmarks. It routes them. It is a compass. I can watch us walking down the street. And we can find where we need to go. Indispensable app for trips especially outside one’s data range if trying to save money by being offline.
Great once you learn how to use it!
by mb552 on 2019/10/12 11:03
This map has better detail than Google maps so it’s easier to read streets and use it more like a paper map. The navigation pointer also turns as you move, showing which direction you are facing. However using the map offline is sometimes frustrating, waiting for it to “catch up” with where you are. And sometimes it can’t find a place you type in which Google maps finds easily, so then I have to switch mapping sources.
Stop sending notifications
by n3rfus on 2017/12/26 21:01
An otherwise great app that doesn’t stop sending you insipid notifications. Today’s had a cat-with-hearts-for-eyes emoji. This was mostly useful while traveling in Southeast Asia, but even with data on, the point of interest and address search frequently failed to find the right spot while google or Apple maps succeeded. But if what you need is a generally accurate map of streets, including small streets, while traveling abroad and trying to stay off data roaming (or unable to use wifi/cellular data), this app fits the bill.
