Avenza Maps App Description

Free for recreational use, just pay for maps or download free ones. In-app subscription required for professional users. Our mobile maps don't need the internet to work. Going hiking? Find an official park or topographic map and navigate with only GPS to locate yourself on a map even when not connected to WiFi or a cellular network.

Avenza Maps App Reviews

  • Great Hunting Tool

    By Chuab
    Super easy to use as long you’re familiar with map reading.
  • Perfect route planning

    By 1_Legolas
    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

    By egosumvita
    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...

    By IowaTVman
    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).
  • Useful

    By Boogie480
    I have had the app for years some versions are better than others.
  • PDF maps made easy

    By dumpsterdiver2
    This is a great tool. I use it frequently and have cut down on printing.
  • Must-have for casual hikers and trip leaders!

    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

    By itdd71
    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

    By badapplicatin
    Very subpar. Lakes are super wrong. Definitely not a useable map in my opinion. Wish I could get my money back.
  • Avenza!!!

    By Ride the Mud
    This app is a must for anyone in the backcountry. We use it when ATV riding and It is awesome!!!
