writing or drawing capabilities would be great.
Great map tool. 5/5
I have been using for a few years I like how reliable it is and you never have wonder if your map will work offline. I purchase a lot of forest service maps which can get expensive but I like knowing I am using an official map.
The black and white motor vehicle use maps are all free and work ok but I like to see topography so I choose to pay for the better maps. Keep up the good work. I’d wish it could be made easier to search for maps I want. Usually is search then click through the results trying to find right map.
Great, but drains battery quickly 4/5
By cowboy of science
Great app that I regularly use doing fieldwork. Watch the battery power, though. The continuous use of the GPS drains batteries quickly.
Good system 4/5
The only problem I’m having is changing the track color!
Best Thing Ever 5/5
Works without cell service, since it only uses your phones GPS. I’ve been out deep in wilderness and it knows exactly where I am. Plus it’s free! I’ve had paid apps be much worse. Only hard thing is finding the right map for your purposes
Worked great! 5/5
My son and I just got done with a 400 mile back road trip through a Death Valley. I always carry maps to navigate but I barely pull them out because this was so easy to use. It shows you exactly where you are on the downloaded map, it is a real time saver!
Great Hiking/Off-roading App 5/5
This app is great. Using with an iPhone 8+. Good tracks when on gps only. Great resources for free nearly current usgs 7.5’ quadrangle maps. No-cell-enhanced gps is accurate enough that you can reasonable question whether it’s your gps error or map error.
Application is good the store needs work 4/5
By Overland man
The application is really good, got exposed to it about five years ago when going to VT Overland festival. I found the application works well and all dependent quality of the map. If it is accurate geolocated then the application is accurate. The store search for new maps is lacking. If I get a new device and try to find old map it is a pain. Much less try to tell someone else to get a map.
Must have 5/5
Eliminates need for GPS. Love it!
Good tracker if you can figure it out 4/5
This tracker works well, but it’s difficult to find the maps you want without help from someone who already has the map
Even with the web address it’s often impossible to find the right one
Maps problem 1/5
After changing my phone to a new one I can’t install purchased maps on the new device.
You own the maps 5/5
A great app for hikers in which you permanently own the maps once you buy them but do not buy them through the apple store. Instead Buy them on the Avenza website just in case you do not find they were not what you expected or hoped for. The Apple Store will not refund your purchase but Avenza will.
The only drawback to the Avenza app is that it does not automatically save your routes or waypoints. You must save/ export them as layers to your files then import them.
Hopefully they will streamline that process in the future
Greatest app ever use it daily works with any PDF map 5/5
Just try to get lost! 5/5
Just try to get lost! I love this app!
Useable even without cellphone or internet reception! Amazing!
So helpful to keep me from entering private property. A little fuzzy on elevation lines compared to Topo app. Used in conjunction with Topo they are fantastic!
Awesome app for heading on a hike. 5/5
By Dale go
Will not be disappointed. Accurate GPS.
This app rocks! So easy to use, and accurate tracking in or out of service. I’ve officially retired my gps.
Great app for work and travel 5/5
Love Avenza Maps for work and travel. So nice to have reliable mapping when call or internet isn’t available. Thanks guys!
A must have 5/5
By hopi dude
I used this app during my recent hunting trip and it was definitely a great tool to have during the hunt and it is very easy to use.
Great app 5/5
Downloaded this before a hunting trip with a friend thinking it might work occasionally and be somewhat helpful, was huge! Easy to use and very accurate! Would recommend!
Takes hours to find specific quadrangles even when the name, etc is known. Then I’ve had trouble keeping the purchased maps loaded.
Great app 5/5
Need direction though
Integrate Apple Pencil!! 5/5
Add pencils integration. To draw on the map, share your highlights, write address, draw landmarks,etc. I use this in the fire service and would love to draw on the map and show my folks where they are going to go. Even send them the drawings as a layer!!
Integrate the pencil!!!!
Needs Apple Watch support 4/5
Love this App. Just wish it had support for the Apple Watch like MotionX-GPS does.
Customer Service 5/5
I had an issue with my subscription between the App Store and the Avenza App. My subscription renewed in the App Store but the app didn’t update. I sent an email to Avenza Support Team telling them what was happening and within minutes I got a reply with instructions on how to update the app. I followed the instructions and the app updated my subscription with no loss of data. Thank you to the Support Team at Avenza for the great customer support!
My map disappeared 2/5
I purchased and used the map last year. But now when I open the app, it tells me it cannot download the map because it has disappeared. What happened to it? Can I get my money back?
Not obvious 3/5
Crosscut Mountain Center (x-c ski) near Bozeman MT says their map is on your site, so I installed the app on an iPad Mini 2 and also from Crosscut’s site it seemed to install Crosscut’s map too. Unfortunately, a search on your app puts me roughly 75-90 miles away, to the SE. I’ve since found it listed to the side, under My Maps, but it seems to open more as a preview with a bunch of squiggly colored lines (trails) than a useful map. Fortunately, I’m familiar with the trails, but someone new wouldn’t be able to make heads or tails of it.
Not what I was expecting 1/5
I bought and downloaded a map that was described as perfect for trails and hiking. There weren’t any trails on the map at all. Very disappointing.
Excellent mapping app! 5/5
By Kern Canyon Camper
Are use this mapping up all the time. It is user-friendly and extremely helpful.
Really handy 5/5
I use this app for backpacking and it is really helpful. Shows where you are on the map and also has navigation and measurement tools.
I have used this map for several years now and after latest update I have lost all save points on my BLM Imperial Sand Dunes Map this May be publisher problem. Also in the new update the compass and navigating features don’t even work. Tried to use navigate to destination feature but yet again compass and heading don’t work and when you think it might work the compass is extremely choppy this app cost me several hours out on the trails and dunes. Your update has destroyed an otherwise wonderful app
Nat Geo maps 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼 3/5
By Polish prince 420
The Nat Geo maps are horrible. No detail and when you zoom in on the map you can’t even see where you are if it’s a short trail or an ascending trail. Wish I would have not wasted my $$$ on these. However the NJ/NY trail conference maps are amazingly accurate
Avenza review!!! 5/5
This app is amazing!!! This app is a must have if you are a outdoors enthusiast. It works when your phone has no service! You will know exactly where you are and where you cannot go! Whoever invented this app is my hero! Go download the avenza app now and you will not be disappointed.
By Bam Sennett
Would dl again!!!1!
Great offline app 5/5
I've used this app for many years now, mainly for hiking and biking. I mostly use this app offline and the maps are very detailed. Plus the majority of the maps are free. This is a great app to have as a backup. Just pay attention to the date of the maps, some are older and may show trails that have been closed or don't exist anymore.
Great collection potential 4/5
This app is better than collector or other GIS based collection apps. The data management is smooth but has a slight learning curve, but that’s easy to look past. The best app around to collect solid data.
Wonderful improvements 5/5
OMG the functionality and management features are out of this world.
I’m going to start using again.
Don't update if you import maps! 1/5
New version removes the ability to import more than 2 maps not from the map store unless you pay $30+/year.
That makes this app useless for me and many people I have recommended it too as we use it for the maps DNR has on its website for free.
Sad used to love this app. Greed kills
Great app, but... 4/5
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!
Great Hiking GPS and Maps 4/5
Great app and I’ve spent a good amount of money on maps. Has never let me down. All we need ASAP is an apple watch app capable of displaying the map and position etc. Competing apps have this functionality already. I may have to switch, but don’t want to lose the money I spent on maps.
Premier Maps App 5/5
No debate. There is no other mapping app that holds a candle. Leave your expensive GPS behind. All you need is this app and a phone!!!!
Not worth the value 2/5
I bought this program to make sure I stay on public land for hunting, which is a problem in my area. It does accomplish this, at a steep 4.99 for each unit I go to. And the definition of the maps are so poor I couldn’t actually use them to navigate. I saw Gaia mentioned in another review, for the cost of the unit maps I could have easily covered the premium yearly subscription and gotten far more value.
Bicycling Aid 5/5
This is such a great app for learning not only the actual bike trails, but also the city streets with bike lanes, the “bike friendly” streets and the low traffic roads, streets and lanes. What a find! I’m so excited to go exploring with my new Avenza maps!
Birds Eye View 5/5
Using the Avenza map system is like getting a birds eye view of where your at and the various road options that you can travel. I still use my GPS but not as much! Highly recommended!
Big picture 3/5
Although I think this app is great and would have rated it higher if it had a base map feature or would somehow show you where you are even if you don’t have the map purchased! I own a few garmin products that are not being used as much now that this app is out
The maps 4/5
Features that would be nice 5/5
In the world of woodland firefighting Avenza has been instrumental in how we map and transfer information between forces. A nice feature would be if you could pause and restart gps tracks. Other than that, it is a great map program. Works great for hunting too.
Not useful for mapping distance 1/5
After downloading a map for a Wild River State Park I see the map is barely useful for planning. No distinguishing trails are present making it worthless for estimating mileage or finding backpacking sites.
Great maps! 5/5
And it works anywhere, without using any data, just internal GPS!
Hunting with Avenza 4/5
By I know this place
Have used your app to hunt in Montana, Colorado, Idaho and South Dakota. Love to see where I am and all the detail available. Will use this fall on another site in Montana to hunt birds and deer. Hunt with 2/3 other guys and we all use them. Wish you had system to follow them too as we hunt in a loose group and want to keep track of each other.
Some difficulty with finding the maps. Need more practice but some times confusing if don,’t know exact name of area or there are numerous pins in same proximity.
All that said, we are glad we found Avenza maps. Keep up the good work.
