USGS DRG topographic maps:
The 7.5-minute maps (1:24.000/1:25.000) are the best maps for outdoor activities in the USA. Although some of the maps are quite old, they contain many small pathes and 4WD tracks that are missing in new USTopos, Google, Bing and OSM maps.
DRGs (Digital Raster Graphics) were produced from 1995 to 2001 by U.S. Geological Survey. DRGs have been made for all quadrangles in the USGS map series.

New US Topo Maps:
US Topo maps are a graphic synthesis of The National Map data files and are produced in the familiar 7.5-minute by 7.5- minute geographic format. Current US Topo map layers include an orthoimage base, transportation, geographic names, topographic contours, boundaries, hydrography and woodlands. Also included are the Public Land Survey System (PLSS) and the United States National Grid.

NAIP Orthoimagery:
Seamless coverage of contiguous US with 1m/pixel resolution

HRO aerial imagery:
High resolution arial photos covering US urban areas and borders (up to 10cm/pixel)

Use this navigation app for outdoor activities like hiking, biking, camping, climbing, riding, skiing, canoeing, hunting, offroad 4WD tours or search&rescue (SAR).

    I started with the free version and realized the Pro version would do exactly what I needed. So I bought the Pro version. The first and only app I have ever purchased. And it was even better than I thought. I had been using a Garmin Oregon and Base camp. And always had to fight with it to get it to do what I wanted, and frequently lost. It may not have voice activated anything or traffic, I haven't explored that. But I don't need any of that to navigate. I use the app to navigate on my motorcycle expeditions and it is perfect for that. If you tour on a motorcycle you absolutely need this app. Furthermore in the area of support, you will never find better. I all of a sudden had difficulty importing routes and e-mailed them about the problem. Three days later there was an update up that fixed the problem. Maybe Garmin should hire these guys to fix their worthless products!!! Full Review

    So far I have NOT been able to put in a route. The search feature does not appear anywhere. The new route feature does not appear. I click on routes and get "no routes " with no way to make one. I want my money back. Full Review

    Simply the best topographic software on the play store. This app is WELL worth the money and functions flawlessly. I am well versed with navigation and map usage; That being said, an electronic counterpart is invaluable while navigating (or re-finding waypoints) back country areas. I can't rave enough about this app. Support the devs and buy the pro version! Full Review

    I love that I can track my position, even when out of cellular range. Great app for anywhere, Western Alaska is where I ride, hunt, and trap, I love the waypoint options without interrupting the tracking session. Full Review

    I cached a map and then put my phone in Airplane Mode to test the “offline” feature. The app just freezes. If I keep running it and then killing it when it freezes I can eventually get it to run. But then I can only view the cached maps via the Manage Cache option which doesn’t let me zoom in. In other words, it doesn’t work without a data connection. Full Review

    Great app but please fix import and export between devices. When you import several tracks it doesn't keep them separate and groups them all in one on a new device. Full Review

    This is way better than buying a dedicated GPS unit. It does everything a GPS would do and more. I used it today to climb 2 summits in Virginia. And I did not need cell service because I was able to pre load my maps. Awesome! Set waypoints and follow the arrow to your destination. Edit:using this now for cycling. It tracks my ride and I can play the entire track back and watch elevation profiles through the mountains, speed, etc. Just Awesome! Full Review

    Carol Wiesner Published date: October 19, 2017

    I bought the app, but so far am not impressed. The topo detail only goes down to a certain point, then the app simply 'magnifies' that view. So the map is of a very low resolution on-screen. Your GPS position is shown, and of course you shouldn't be lost but a higher resolution option would be nice. Like, Backcountry Nav which I also have? Actual in-app street-nav would be nice, as myRouteMap does using the Google routing engine. "Tilt map" view is nice too when driving a route, but not possible here. Google Maps and mRM can use these capabilities, why is it not possible within this app? The weather overlays haven't seemed that helpful or detailed so far. Overall I'm not seeing myself using it as a primary mapping tool, on or off road, but I still go into it sometimes to try things. A bit pricey I feel for what it offers. Full Review

    Excellent hunting app. I've been using it for several years now. It does need improvements but for what I need, it works great. You can record your track, position and you can always follow your track to get back to your car or any other place. I love the statistics too and the available layers. You could improve the reliability of the arrow and since many hunters use this app, you could add a public/private land or hunting areas map. I'm a hunter and this app is a must have for me.

    Kevin Macy Published date: October 16, 2017

    I've been using this app for 4 years and it is, hands down, the best GPS and map tool for my phone. I have cached countless maps and used them in the back country, where there is no cell service, without issue. In those four years, I have only had two issues with this tool (caching PADUS maps and sharing routes) and both were addressed by the developer. I've tried OnX, ScoutLook and HuntStand but none of these stood up to this app (at least for what I need). Full Review

    I've been using US Topo Maps Pro for 3 years now. I've also searched for others during that time, and have not found a more suitable application for what US Topo Maps has been able to do for one main reason. US Topo Maps has a selection of the most detailed aerial maps available. I have been able to download any map, to any device that I have needed for traveling Off-Road. From Phablets, to tablets, to standard size phones. Creating a route or track has also been a breeze. I can select any detailed map to create my route, and switch back and forth between others to ensure the route I am creating is the most accurate, and the GPS accuracy has always been + or - 10 feet. There are 2 additions I would like to make. The ability to select the highest level desired to be downloaded. When I am downloading a large area, such as the Grand Canyon Parashant National Monument, the maps take up large amounts of space. 30gb from Mesquite NV to Kelly Point Overlook. (ESRI Aerial, 11-18) Also, the ability to select only a portion of the area would also decrease the size of the maps greatly by allowing me to select only the aerial maps that I require, and not just a general square size.

    Seems like a good app but on a Moto g4 it kills the battery quick, I am having a problem caching maps to local SD card, when zooming in I do not always get consistent topo line scale - part of the view is of a much corser fidelity, and on a zoom I am often left with no map view until I zoom way out. Frustrating on a hike down the Long Trail Full Review

    This is a great app, i have ran US Topo pro app and Gaia app for two months now. I love this app over the Gaia app. Its only draw back for me is I can not plan a route and it will not map you out a route between two points. If this was changed it would be 5 star, Hands down. I still like it over Gaia and it is half the price... Full Review
