Save your money, find a different app
by Gsuhrie on 2016/09/23 19:29
I loaded in my own kml file, the only reason I wanted this thing, and I crashes every time I try. Save your 3$, don't buy this piece of crap.
Stay away
by ewyrick on 2014/09/01 02:16
Just wasted 2.99, May not be much to some of you but do not like wasting money. The maps for my area are not accurate, tried to up load my own maps but so far it has not been successful. If you live in a big city may work but in a very rural area stay away. Reviews are good but must be for cities.
Ehh
by WyattL on 2013/11/15 15:40
its ok but if you live in a third world and want to get a detailed map, try something else. untill they give me more details i will have to say its just ok. a little hard to navagate
Nice GPS App

Works great. Imports gpx files that I use when cycling. Recommended.

This is the best app I have on my iPhone. It helps me with all my hikes; gives me elevation gives me speed and gives me distance. What a perfect app.
Wonderful App!
by blesidizme on 2013/05/09 03:36
I'm a 59 years of age Louisiana Boy, Southern USA. My lifestyle is Fishing, Hunting, Biking, Hiking, Camping, the great outdoors. This App, coming from someone who actually doesn't write reviews, is wonderful. All it states to be plus with a little creativity, an in the swamps, woods, etc; a great comfort to carry along. Totally recommended to all, weather your a city individual, and or a great outdoors person. In my opinion, a must have on all phones. A thank you to the developers of the wondrous App!
Beautiful
by Ondyma on 2013/05/02 10:22
I like this app. I am interested in mapping my surroundings and found it very helpful using various modes of transportation (foot, bike etc). The How-to videos are excellent. If you can give more uses of the app will be even wonderful to let us it to its full capacity.
Great for the serious traveler
by Rainlady007 on 2013/04/25 06:40
Wonderful if you are hiking or do more off the road travel, you can literally use any kind of map and create your own. No roaming charges is great for when you are abroad, when you actually need your map. The interface is well designed, I love the presentation. A great maps alternative with the added benefit of complete freedom.

첫글이 별5개에 판에 박힌듯한 좋은 평가길래 알바글이 아닐까 싶었는데, 역시나 한국 미국 앱스토어에 토시하나 안틀리고 똑같은걸 보니 알바글이 맞구나. 구글맵 다운도 아니고 오픈스트리트맵을 요즘 누가 쓰나. 구글맵 다운받은 어플이 내가 가지고 있는것만 2개인데 왜 이걸 또 받았을까 ㅡㅡ;
Great app!

I love being outside, whether for hiking, camping, running or just enjoying nature. However, many portable GPS units have limited information and capability—I sold a Magellan because it didn’t provide me much information. DIY Map is a great way for you to ditch bulky expensive GPS units and use your mobile device. Live tracking of your destination, local weather and restaurants of major cities are just the start. You can download maps of most anywhere you can travel or imagine—but no bloat of places you don’t need—personal customization. You can track your yourself through GPS and even figure out speed and cadence using your bike—something I can’t wait to try out once all this snow melts! This is like Google Maps and Garmin and on steroids. The capabilities and customization are well worth it. No need spending hundreds on a new device that is obsolete in months when you can have a fully customizable and updateable app that will grow with you and your travels. Easily worth the low price.

Hiking and Vacation Mapping Tool
by iPhoneSDKPro on 2013/02/21 21:54
Yes this is the coolest mapping app that I've purchased. Lets just say your going on a hiking trip, or on vacation to an island in the tropics. If you don't have data access, your iPhone, or iPad navigation is not going to workout too well for you. This is where DIY Maps GPS comes in handy. You can search for a map from google maps and overlay tiles from other mapping sources. Add in the Millions of Points of Interest worldwide and you have the ultimate offline mapping tool. After you get use to the interface you will be using DIY Maps GPS to create offline maps for the places you travel most. Contacted the developer and he promises Nautical maps in an upcoming release. Ohhh baby.
Worth its money!
by Lana_J_Lang on 2013/02/21 08:02
Feature-rich GPS app that is worth every penny. Now I can create and use my very own, custom map while treking. Lots of maps to choose from. Well thought out user interface. Innovative app indeed!
Great for anyone!
by Hapiapps on 2013/02/21 04:28
This is a great app especially because it doesn't use any data. It has tons of maps. This is even good for iPod users.
Great for hikers

This May Just Get Me Through Geology
by NReluctant on 2013/02/18 23:27
I have been looking for an app like this for a while online, and to be honest the cool icon design is what attracted me to this one. My Geology class has been doing a few lessons involving Google Earth, but I needed something I can use while in class to ask questions and that will help me with more accurate coordinates. This app looks like it has it all from what I can tell! The compass feature seems to be super accurate and does just what I need. The maps are neat looking, not 100% what I am used to, but overall this app is really neat and has some cool features!
A Miracle for Travelers and iPod Users
by zmohiuddin on 2013/02/18 20:18
This app is probably the most amazing app you will find on the App Store. It essentially allows you to save maps to your phone with a bunch of other handy navigation/trip tracking options. If you travel at all you know how hard it is to get a Data plan on your iPhone for a reasonable price, and even when you do there's no guarantee of getting service! This app turns you from a lost foreign traveler to an expert navigator. The UI is clean, easy to use, and absolutely functional. One other use case I found for this was for folks who have an iPod touch or do not have a data plan on their iPhones. Offline maps can help you find your way around with any data connection! Perfect for the two groups I mentioned above and travelers! This app is really amazing in its depth of features and utility value. Get this app now and never be lost again!

This May Just Get Me Through Geology
by NReluctant on 2013/02/18 23:27
I have been looking for an app like this for a while online, and to be honest the cool icon design is what attracted me to this one. My Geology class has been doing a few lessons involving Google Earth, but I needed something I can use while in class to ask questions and that will help me with more accurate coordinates. This app looks like it has it all from what I can tell! The compass feature seems to be super accurate and does just what I need. The maps are neat looking, not 100% what I am used to, but overall this app is really neat and has some cool features!
A Miracle for Travelers and iPod Users

This app is probably the most amazing app you will find on the App Store. It essentially allows you to save maps to your phone with a bunch of other handy navigation/trip tracking options. If you travel at all you know how hard it is to get a Data plan on your iPhone for a reasonable price, and even when you do there's no guarantee of getting service! This app turns you from a lost foreign traveler to an expert navigator. The UI is clean, easy to use, and absolutely functional. One other use case I found for this was for folks who have an iPod touch or do not have a data plan on their iPhones. Offline maps can help you find your way around with any data connection! Perfect for the two groups I mentioned above and travelers! This app is really amazing in its depth of features and utility value. Get this app now and never be lost again!
Your path to exploration starts here!

I love being outside, whether for hiking, camping, running or just enjoying nature. However, many portable GPS units have limited information and capability—I sold a Magellan because it didn’t provide me much information. DIY Map is a great way for you to ditch bulky expensive GPS units and use your mobile device. Live tracking of your destination, local weather and restaurants of major cities are just the start. You can download maps of most anywhere you can travel or imagine—but no bloat of places you don’t need—personal customization. You can track your yourself through GPS and even figure out speed and cadence using your bike—something I can’t wait to try out once all this snow melts! This is like Google Maps and Garmin and on steroids. The capabilities and customization are well worth it. No need spending hundreds on a new device that is obsolete in months when you can have a fully customizable and updateable app that will grow with you and your travels. Easily worth the low price.

Wonderful App!

I'm a 59 years of age Louisiana Boy, Southern USA. My lifestyle is Fishing, Hunting, Biking, Hiking, Camping, the great outdoors. This App, coming from someone who actually doesn't write reviews, is wonderful. All it states to be plus with a little creativity, an in the swamps, woods, etc; a great comfort to carry along. Totally recommended to all, weather your a city individual, and or a great outdoors person. In my opinion, a must have on all phones. A thank you to the developers of the wondrous App!
Great for the serious traveler
by Rainlady007 on 2013/04/25 06:40
Wonderful if you are hiking or do more off the road travel, you can literally use any kind of map and create your own. No roaming charges is great for when you are abroad, when you actually need your map. The interface is well designed, I love the presentation. A great maps alternative with the added benefit of complete freedom.
Hiking and Vacation Mapping Tool
by iPhoneSDKPro on 2013/02/21 21:54
Yes this is the coolest mapping app that I've purchased. Lets just say your going on a hiking trip, or on vacation to an island in the tropics. If you don't have data access, your iPhone, or iPad navigation is not going to workout too well for you. This is where DIY Maps GPS comes in handy. You can search for a map from google maps and overlay tiles from other mapping sources. Add in the Millions of Points of Interest worldwide and you have the ultimate offline mapping tool. After you get use to the interface you will be using DIY Maps GPS to create offline maps for the places you travel most. Contacted the developer and he promises Nautical maps in an upcoming release. Ohhh baby.
Beautiful

I like this app. I am interested in mapping my surroundings and found it very helpful using various modes of transportation (foot, bike etc). The How-to videos are excellent. If you can give more uses of the app will be even wonderful to let us it to its full capacity.
Worth its money!
by Lana_J_Lang on 2013/02/21 08:02
Feature-rich GPS app that is worth every penny. Now I can create and use my very own, custom map while treking. Lots of maps to choose from. Well thought out user interface. Innovative app indeed!
Great for anyone!
by Hapiapps on 2013/02/21 04:28
This is a great app especially because it doesn't use any data. It has tons of maps. This is even good for iPod users.
Stay away
by ewyrick on 2014/09/01 02:16
Just wasted 2.99, May not be much to some of you but do not like wasting money. The maps for my area are not accurate, tried to up load my own maps but so far it has not been successful. If you live in a big city may work but in a very rural area stay away. Reviews are good but must be for cities.

This is the best app I have on my iPhone. It helps me with all my hikes; gives me elevation gives me speed and gives me distance. What a perfect app.

Nice GPS App
by 29cheetah on 2013/07/16 02:30
Works great. Imports gpx files that I use when cycling. Recommended.
Save your money, find a different app
by Gsuhrie on 2016/09/23 19:29
I loaded in my own kml file, the only reason I wanted this thing, and I crashes every time I try. Save your 3$, don't buy this piece of crap.
Disappointed
by Lvchoralman on 2013/02/23 19:29
At best, I'm disappointed.

첫글이 별5개에 판에 박힌듯한 좋은 평가길래 알바글이 아닐까 싶었는데, 역시나 한국 미국 앱스토어에 토시하나 안틀리고 똑같은걸 보니 알바글이 맞구나. 구글맵 다운도 아니고 오픈스트리트맵을 요즘 누가 쓰나. 구글맵 다운받은 어플이 내가 가지고 있는것만 2개인데 왜 이걸 또 받았을까 ㅡㅡ;
