not a good map
Horrible mapping. they don't use the standard map format and icon. The main highways are blue! blue is for rivers. The smaller roads muddle up the screen when you zoom out. The background topo info also muddles up the screen. The major roads aren't formatted well so you easily loose your track as you zoom or scroll about. This map app needs lots of work and the developers should try to use standard formats and icons. Those little elongated ovals for highway numbers don't do it.

Shows distance! Is free!
I'm thrilled. The maps look nice. I can cache them to my device! What an amazing app, for free. And the data is free, too. I am amazed. Since Apple is switching to the OpenStreetMap database, I decided I want to make sure the data is good. Therefore I intend to make contributions. I have doubts about whether this data will ever be as awesome as what Google has. On the other hand, I've seen the power of crowd-source open projects like this. There is a lot to be said for having, say, 1,000,000 people, actively contributing. Look at Wikipedia for example! In any case, I am way impressed with this app and recommend it to you. --Eben Visher

Good, room for improvement
I spend lots of time in the back-country where an offline map is a must. This has been a fair solution. Here are my complaints/suggestions for improvements. -According to the listed number of downloads, you're stopped randomly, often long before the stated daily limit. -Marine areas are lacking -my experience being on Lk Superior and along the MN/Canadian border. -Canadian lakes seem to be missing entirely -or they're outlined in black but not blue.

Pretty good
Quite good,really, for land, but sadly lacking in labels for bodies of water.
