Topographic map of New Zealand using the official LINZ Topo50 and Topo250 maps series. An excellent research resource and a great take-with-you reference for outdoors enthusiasts such as trampers, geocaching enthusiasts, hunters, anglers, mountaineers, kayakers, etc. Current functionality: • Download complete maps for offline use. • Map caching for offline use. • Show current location. • Create waypoints. • Share/email waypoints. • Record tracks. • Email tracks as KML or GPX. Planned functionality: • Compass. • Location search. Optional in-app purchases available: • Complete offline map of the North Island - $7. • Complete offline map of the South Island - $7. Prices are in New Zealand dollars. Why aren't they free? The large download sizes result in significant hosting and bandwidth costs. TIP: Turn flight mode on when you're in the bush without a cell signal, you're battery will last a lot longer! You can still use GPS for tracking while flight mode is on. Warning - this app may contain traces of moa and Fiordland moose! • Bug fix for offline maps. Purchased offline maps would become unavailable if phone was turned off then on again while offline.
9/02/2015Great app. Very handy on tramping trips (if you can keep the phone dry). Offline use is good, though I suspect it re-downloads tiles that are already cached; can take ages, and I am scared to interrupt it by using other apps. Earlier it got into a state a couple of times where it wouldn't start up at all. That was on a Nokia Lumia 520. Developer was very responsive to feedback, and while I never did get to the bottom of the trouble, it seems to have magically resolved itself. I'd still take a paper map as backup. Would love to be able to search for named landmarks...
1/02/2015Great idea but unable to download a large map (e.g. covering Wellington to Tararuas) as it seems to time out/stall - progress bar stops moving on download.
19/01/2015The maps take up heaps of memory, wish windows phone could store maps on SD card, app itself is good, needs a search function to be better than my Garmin for regular navigation. Tracking does not work under lock screen and is not customizable
11/01/2015This app is exceptional, offline maps, GPS tracking, export GPS tracks online, ability to share tracks easy, waypoints. All for free.
19/09/2014I use this app every day, and the paid maps top it off!
