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.

    Can't wait to use it in the bush. Thanks for supporting windows.

    Great app. I bought this as soon as I got my WP and it is better than the one I had on my iPhone. Well done to the developer and please support by purchasing so he will keep doing it.

    Great 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...

    Great 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.

    The 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

    This app is exceptional, offline maps, GPS tracking, export GPS tracks online, ability to share tracks easy, waypoints. All for free.

    I use this app every day, and the paid maps top it off!
