Use offline topo maps and GPS on hike trails without cell service! The GPS in your Android phone can get its position from satellites, and you don’t have to rely on your data plan to get maps. Have more fun and safe GPS adventures in the backcountry.

Preload FREE offline topo maps, aerial photos, and road maps on your storage, so they are ready when you need them.

Add custom GPS waypoints in longitude and latitude, UTM or MGRS grid reference. Import GPS waypoints from GPX files. Choose icons for waypoints much like in MapSource. (This app uses the WGS84 datum, NAD27 is available in settings).

Use GPS for hunting a waypoint or geocache, for recording tracks and GPS waypoints on your trip, all the while tracking your quest on topographic maps.

About topo (topographic) maps: Topo maps show terrain through color and contours, and are useful for navigation offroad. Topo maps and GPS can be used for hiking, hunting, kayaking, snowshoeing, & backpacker trails.

OpenStreetMaps and NASA landsat data worldwide.
OpenCyle Maps are topo maps that show terrain worldwide.
USGS Color Aerial photography.

Here are some of the outdoor GPS activities BackCountry Navigator has been used for:
Hiking both on hiking trails and off trail.
Camping, to find the perfect camping site or the way back to camp.
Hunting trips for hunting wild game in rugged areas, including recon for the hunt.
Bait fishing or fly fishing with a buddy.
Search and Rescue (SAR) with GPS.
Kayak and canoe trips on inland lakes and streams or marine, coastal waters.
Backpacker trips: using topo maps of wilderness areas and national forests to navigate on trails with the GPS.
Snow adventures including snowmobiling, skiing (alpine or cross country) and snowshoeing.

This a great addition to the outdoor gear you bought at Cabelas, REI, or another outdoor store. Your android phone could substitute for a Garmin or Magellan outdoor handheld GPS!

    This is a great app and 12bucks it a perfect price. A single paper area map cost $4+. With this, download and save maps and go track your way anywhere without using up your data plan - and have records everywhere you been. AWESOME! Thank you

    Spent 4 days in the Canadian Rockies and before I left, I downloaded various maps at various zoom levels. We even managed to find a couple Geocaching spots to within a couple feet! NR Can Topo map is detailed & very accurate. Other maps are handy and accurate. Google's Sat maps would be bonus, but I have a computer for that. Time to buy the full version :)

    if you go into the backcountry this app is great. Plus the developer is always adding useful new options.

    I didn't know folks still published apps hit this hard with the ugly stick. Welcome to Android circa 2009. On top of this terrible, confusing UI, I can't get a map to load.

    Awesome app but $12? Really? That's pretty steep for an app.

    Best maps for uk (OS), walking or boating. No costs after initial purchase, unlike competition. Has never failed during the trial.
