Great App! 5/5
I’ve used this app twice and it’s so helpful while hiking. It helps you keep on trail. The accuracy when going off trail is also incredible. The best feature is that it works seamlessly in airplane mode so losing cell signal is not really a problem.
By Dama Biancha
Great app, especially if you use state maps which are free. I always knew where I was when hiking. Perfect.
Great stand-alone 5/5
When you’ve got no service but want to look at maps, this is THE app!
Thank you!! 5/5
This is such an easy app to use!
The National Forest Motor Vehicle Use maps are very helpful.
This is a great resource for OHV maps 5/5
Opens up a lot of maps otherwise hard to find.
App won’t load 1/5
Paid for a map app thru iTunes have receipt but map app won’t load.
This product is difficult to use and doesn’t work on my iPhone 8+
Use for OHV trail riding 5/5
By omy gird
Use some of the maps for OHV trail riding. Accurate live tracking of your location on the map. Very useful.
How do I sync maps? 1/5
I purchased a map on iPad, but I didn’t see anywhere that having an Avenza account was necessary to get the maps to sync to my iPhone. I created the account, and at that point was notified for the sync between devices to work I must purchase while signed into the account.
Great Hiking Maps!! 5/5
Great hiking maps with high accuracy and location guide. My only minor problem is search tool for new maps. Won’t hit the trailhead without it.
Avenza map 5/5
Great for traveling, used it when going to Arizona, to the Grand Canyon.
Perfect for following trails 5/5
Heat maps. Shows where u r. All trails. Great
Interesting App 5/5
You don't need internet, pin points your location. Very helpful when it is a new trail or any area you are not familiar
Maps and GPS data 5/5
By Will, Duke of Peony Creek
Excellent app allows GPS tracking and data recording. Can export to ArcGIS or Garmin Adventures or google earth. Great for use with custom PDF maps or maps from the Avenza store. I wish there was an affordable desktop version!
Great maps 5/5
I used this in the backcountry as well as Hong Kong.
Great Map! 5/5
This app has many cool features. I love the “pin” feature. When we park our car at a trail I insert a pin exactly where the car is. If you turn on the “recording” feature you can track the route you have taken as well as how far you have gone and the speed you are hiking. To me, the main comfort is that you can never get lost with this app. However, my strong recommendation is that you bring an external battery and have it connected to your phone so you don’t run out of juice.
Lost maps 5/5
I lost a few maps due to a phone restore issue and I called support for help. The rep sent me instructions to download them again and it was as simple as the first time. Awesome customer support team!!!
This app makes no sense 2/5
Trying to use it for USGS topo maps, but the map search feature in the map store doesn’t work at all. The only options to download a map are to look at a list of all topo maps in the US, sorted either by: title, popularity, or date. I don’t understand how *any* of these options make sense. Am I suppose to click the “load more” button for hours until I see the map I want?
You can’t even search by location. Who designed this UI?!?
Equipment opp 5/5
Great app for outdoor activities 5/5
Avenza is great for off-road vehicles such as dirt bike ATV or bicycle
You can download the map while on the network and use it while off grid
So far I love this program. It’s the best map app I’ve installed.
I would love to see old historical mining maps added to this app in the future if possible 😃
Great idea, poor implementation 5/5
1. Map purchasing doesn’t work half the time. Seems as though their server has trouble connecting to iTunes Store to verify payment.
2. Why wouldn’t this app automatically pick a map you’re on? Or transition track recording from one map to another?
3. “On map” should mean you are actually on the goddamn map, not just within the margins of a PDF page.
4. Map categories are ridiculously inaccurate. When I deselect “historical maps”, I expect all of the old crap from the previous century to disappear from my search results.
Map works fine but search function on the store never work 4/5
I love this app but getting maps or finding the maps I won’t is always challenge. Even if I find the map I want on the google, it links to open up the app but the link to the map is gone and there is no way to find the exact map on the app..
Great app, but... 4/5
Avenza finally fixed their search feature and it works like a charm now! However, there still isn’t a notification to let you know when a map publisher has updated the map you have. Once this gets implemented, 5 stars for sure!
I use this app quite extensively and it’s wonderful! I have a few suggestions though. I saw a previous review that said the search engine on mobile devices is horrendous. I agree. I also saw Avenza’s response and they’re working on it. So I hope that’s fixed relatively soon. Another issue is that you don’t get notifications telling you when one of your maps has a newer version pushed by the creator. If that was implemented so you knew when to redownload the map to stay up to date, I would have no complaints!
A life saver 5/5
By Daric's Girl
I’m working on a 600 acre job site and my map only tells me where I need to be not where I am. Event i’m working on a 600 acre job site and my map only tells me where I need to be not where I am. Avenza saves me so much time and so much frustration. I can’t say enough good things about this app 😊❤️
Great map app 5/5
Always know your position with the GPS feature
Easy navigation 5/5
Works great for land navigation in areas with little to no cell coverage.
Big Wood Boogie 5/5
By Thorfin Cougar
I’m a Timber Cruiser and use Avenza to navigate in the woods. It’s much easier than my gps unit. Love it!
Awesome app! 5/5
I LOVE this app. I work in the field and love being able to bring my georeferenced maps in the field with me. Excellent app!
Great tool 5/5

Find having this mapping app on my phone to be an incredible and easy tool to utilize.
Fantastic tool 5/5
By 300 Pumpkin
Very powerful tool for exploring new areas.
Super cool! 5/5
I like it. Amazingly accurate!
Maps unavailable? 5/5
I have this app on my Android phone as well as an iPad. The iOS version will not allow the storing of a pdf map however the android version will. Way to go IOS...screw the lil guy again.
Update: After throwing out the “Get Started” information map I was allowed to load/import the Third map ...a PDF from a separate website....all works as the Android now. Love the Avenza app as it keeps me in the correct hunting area and out of trouble with the game warden.
I love map 5/5
By The R3 Dude
I love maps a lot
Works Awesome 5/5
Works Awesome, I am just going to ding it for one thing and that is trying to find the map that you want. Finding it on the desk top is one thing finding it on the mobile app is a whole different game.
Great Hunting Tool 5/5
Super easy to use as long you’re familiar with map reading.
Perfect route planning 5/5
I really enjoy the app, marking points and easily exporting it. It is also easy to import points or send it to a friend’s phone.
Better apps out there 3/5
With all the limitations on the software there just is better options in the free department. I downloaded the app when the trail map I wanted recommended it but after using it I have decided that Tomo nomad has more features and is more versatile to my situation.
Overall a good product, but... 4/5
I recently set up a new iPad from the backup of my old one. The first time I opened Avenza maps, a message told me that I needed to re-download my maps. Started doing that. An error message told me that the maps were no longer available in the Map Store. Great. Hundreds of dollars worth of maps are not available? Eventually I found that I just needed to log back into my Map Store account. Should have realized that, but anyway, in this situation the error message should remind the user to log in—NOT that the maps are not available.
Feature request: when scrolling near the edge of the map, it would be nice to have a pop up of some sort advise the user of adjoining maps (if any).
I have had the app for years some versions are better than others.
PDF maps made easy 5/5
This is a great tool. I use it frequently and have cut down on printing.
Must-have for casual hikers and trip leaders! 5/5
By Mike, 2009
The use of the app makes getting lost a problem of bygone days. And no hike leader should be without it in view of the responsibilities that go with leading groups of people. Needless to say, having that “blue dot” in view is very reassuring when exploring.
Two criticisms that do not reduce the 5-star rating.
1. The map search is not always reliable when looking on the grid. And some can be easily found on the iPhone but not the iPad - or visa versa.
2. Availability of updates of maps here often lag way behind the time of the updates released by the parks themselves. This is especially so for the free maps.
Still a fantastic “hiking companion”!
Search feature is worse than useless 1/5
The search feature in the store in the app is desperate. In upstate NY search by name or “near me” returns incomplete and poor quality results, using goodness knows what sorting algorithm.
Not good 1/5
Very subpar. Lakes are super wrong. Definitely not a useable map in my opinion. Wish I could get my money back.
By Ride the Mud
This app is a must for anyone in the backcountry. We use it when ATV riding and
It is awesome!!!
What can I say it’s great! 5/5
By WIS Chris
This is one of the best field mapping, data collection, coordinate defining, GIS Systems available, for your smart phone or tablet, or laptop!
Awesome App! 5/5
Must have map for all advisors outdoorsman’s.
Love this app! 5/5
I use it for trail riding. It’s saved my bacon quite a few times when the trails are hard to find or washed out. I just point the arrow in the direction the trail used to be and keep going until we find it again.
Good but 2/5
I wanted to import some of my maps into Avenza which it allowed up to 3 but I mistakenly put the same map up twice so o took it down now Avenza will not allow to upload the correct version as it costs me one upload. So if I want my map it will cost me the 29.95 fee to do so a bit excessive in price imho
