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
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 5/5
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
