Description

Topos2Go Free is a free version of Topos2Go. Topos2Go Free allows you to view topographic maps. You can download freely available maps and store them on your device for use without WiFi or cell access. The full version of Topos2Go adds the ability to locate your position on maps and import/export waypoints.

Topos2Go Free was developed with backcountry hiking and backpacking in mind. Unlike mapping apps that simply cache map data, Topos2Go Free gives you full control over the maps that are stored on your device. You select the maps you want on your device and they stay there until you delete them. You have no worries about whether or not your cached data will still be there when you look for it in the backcountry.

Features include:

+ Maps stored on your device for use without WiFi or cell access

+ Maps sorted by their distance from you making it easy to find the right map for your current location

+ Ability to create and edit waypoints

+ Integration with TopoQuest's site making it easy to locate high quality USGS topo maps including finding maps near your current position and maps near other maps in your library

+ Ability to load your own maps on your device

Map Availability: Topos2Go Free's primary source of maps is TopoQuest which provides extensive coverage of the US with high quality USGS topo maps. You can also direct Topos2Go Free to other sites with maps.

Map Compatibility: Currently, Topos2Go Free supports maps in GeoTIFF format with UTM and Albers Equal-Area Conic projections. If there is an unsupported GeoTIFF map you wish to use, please contact support@cynicsoftware.com and request its inclusion.

Great Topo Maps App

:
Even the Free version is excellent for anyone who needs FREE USGS topo maps at their fingertips on the iPhone. The last couple of 1 star reviews are obviously bogus since Topoquest.com has ALL the USGS topo maps available for free download. I looked and found full coverage of the Santa Monica Mts. on the Pt. Dume. Malibu Beach, and Topanga quads. The full Mammoth Lakes area is covered too. Maybe the reviewer doesn't know how to download to a computer and easily rename the files and upload to the iPhone, but I suspect someone trying to bring down the rating for a competing app. Zoom out goes blank? Yeah, for a second while the app reloads the proper tiles. NBD! Zoom in will make the map detail BIGGER than the original USGS printed map! Bogus complaints. This app also allows you to mark and save waypoints too! Some of the other paid topo apps don't save waypoints. I bought the paid version for $3.99 so I could get my current gps position shown right on the map, but the free version brings up the map containing your current location if you have it on your iPhone. Try the free version. Downloading maps on your computer is better and faster than directly on your iPhone and then you can even print out copies with various print programs. Uploading the renamed tif files to the iPhone is easy! You can upload and download maps to/from the iPhone easily to save space if you have downloaded a bunch of the free USGS topos.

3/5 stars

Mostly works very well

:
Downloaded this app a couple of weeks ago, so I could give an intelligent review. I really care about having good maps when I'm far from cellular signals, so this is important to me.

That said, the positive reviews of this app are mostly right on:

- the app does what it claims, and pretty smoothly
- downloading good maps is very easy and I have found no shortage, at least of the 1:24,000 topo maps.
- renaming the maps is a small problem: I tend to get 6-9 maps at a time (area of interest and several surrounding maps), so remembering which map is which to give them meaningful names is difficult for me.
- zoom out is incredibly, hideously slow. I slowly realized that, by zooming out gradually, one can maintain reasonable performance (a minute or two to tile the image for the screen). However, I wanted to zoom back from the default view to "zoom level 3" and was never able to wait long enough for the screen to refresh.

I have three things I would like:

1.) much faster refresh, somehow, especially when zooming out.
2.) auto-naming of downloaded maps to the quadrangle name
3.) some facility for drawing some simple straight lines on the screen using the equivalent of common navigation tools:
a.) point-and-bearing (for compass sights - select a point & enter a bearing, it draws a line through the point on the reverse bearing, assumably through your location)
b.) point-to-point (could it show the bearing and distance between the points?)
c.) parallel line (select a line and move a copy of that line around)

Bottom line: this is an app that works and does something very useful, although it could be much more useful if it could zoom out faster.

4/5 stars

Pretty Darned Good

:
Overall I like this App. Others have pointed out the most salient points. For those having trouble with the file names of the maps- I downloaded the tiff files I wanted from TopoQuest to my computer, and then renamed them and used the network interface function of the app to upload the renamed files to the app on my Ipod (look in the help section at the end of the part about uploading maps- you DON'T have to use a website). Works great- yes it takes a while to tile the maps the first time, but so what.
