How does it Work?

GPS & Maps is a simple, yet powerful GPS app for supporting navigation and outdoor activities like geocaching, sailing, skating, trekking, biking or traveling by airplane. It measures your position, height and acceleration with accuracy information and in different units like feet, meter, miles and kilometers. Your highest altitude and speed will also be logged. You can show and save your current position or other waypoints on a map and pick one of the following formats to view your coordinates: - GPS Coordinates (Latitude/Longitude) - Decimal Degrees - Degrees/Minutes/Seconds GPS & Maps is a must have for geocachers, due to the easy switching between coordinates and map. The integrated flashlight enables users like geocachers to find targets even in dark environments without having to use a separate device. Via in-app purchase you can add some useful features to GPS & Maps: - Premium Edition: Unlock all of the following features. - Waypoints Addon: Save your current location as a marker on the map. Add new locations like geo caches to the map by entering GPS coordinates. Pick different colors for waypoints. Export waypoints via e-mail. Show or hide saved waypoints on the map. - Map Widgets: The draggable Map Widgets show your location, altitude, speed and GPS accuracy directly on the map. You can change the widget transparency and textcolor in the settings to optimize readability on different map tiles and map data sources like Google Maps or Open Street Map. - Compass: The compass shows your heading relative to magnetic north or true north (configurable in the settings) and your current location coordinates. It also shows additional information like street, city and country. If you buy Compass and Map Widgets the Compass will also be displays as a widget on the map. - Open Street Map Addon: This feature enhances the map with additional map data from Open Street Map. - Google Maps Addon: This feature enhances the map with additional map data from Google Maps. The map modes 'standard', 'satellite', 'hybrid' and 'terrain' can be selected in the options menu. Please keep in mind that the accuracy of your position and acceleration always depends on the intensity of the available GPS signal. Compass and heading information are only available on devices with magnetometer (iPhone3 GS or newer and iPad).

  • Disappointed

    By mckinney3
    I have the premium version and have concerns out of the box. First, there is no way to ask questions or get support from the app. I found an email address for developer and have written them. Secondly, my big issue is with addition of waypoints. Once gps settles down, I would expect adding a waypoint (red pin) would drop at the current location (blue dot) but that does not happen. The red pin may drop as far as 100 feet away and successive pins will be all over the map- no duplicates and none near the current location indicated by blue dot. Sometimes a pin will not drop at all. Until this is cleared up, I have to give a low rating. More.... 1.)never heard back from the developers so support is poor. 2.). The app does NOT drop pins at current location. The pins (waypoints) drop as much as 10 feet away or not at all. I realize that the current location is subject to jitter and the iPhone’s limitations but the waypoint should match the current location. I can not recommend this unit and would love to get my money back!
  • It gives me the info I was looking for

    By illovich
    I often forget I have this app, but whenever I’m out and have a query (e.g. “how high am I?” or “where am I (in coordinates)”) it has the answers I’m looking for, in text, in an easily readable table. I only really care about the GPS tab, but now that I looked at it again I might grab the OSM pack.
  • Great for my work!

    By Rikkkyy
    I am a game warden on the water in Maryland. We deal with areas of the water where commercial fishermen are not allowed to harvest fish/shellfish. I love the easy waypoint system! It allows me to mark each area off so I can easily refer to this app to make sure watermen are supposed to be where they are. I only have one suggestion I would like to add. If you could make it possible to add lines/tracks from waypoint to waypoint, it would help me out a lot! Thanks!!
  • One of the best GPS apps for backcountry

    By JamesKoca
    I’ve used this several times where AT&T coverage is poor or doesn’t exist. Being able to see where you are, have been and going is one reason to carry a ‘smart’ phone only instead of with a handheld GPS. Just be sure to download and update the maps for where you’re going BEFORE going ‘off the grid’.
  • Worked amazingly

    By ScaryYayou
    I used this for a school project when we had to go geo caching. I tried multiple different apps but none of them seemed to work. When I tried this one It worked. The next morning i went and took a look at the cache and it was there. Thank you for the awesome app. If I didn’t find this I might have gotten an F.
  • No more excuses!!

    By Numbers_guy
    Now my wife knows that I can’t use my common excuse: “Sorry, hon, I got lost” when I’m supposed to meet her somewhere, because now I always know exactly where I am within +/- 6 inches! I guess this should have earned it 1 star, at the most, but I’ve gotta be honest, it’s really a great app to have handy!!
  • Locations

    By flytie100
    Found it very helpful in documenting the location of where pictures were taken. Also helped in finding locations that are off the main roads and in remote places.
  • For required work in the field

    By brusterio
    Basic, easy to use, and to the point in terms of documenting/sharing location.
  • Excellent app

    By chaz832
    No need to spend hundreds for a gps/compass/speedometer this app works fine for a little money.
