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.

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.
Currently US Topo maps cover about 75% of the conterminous US. Full coverage with latest maps will be available soon (est. Summer 2013)

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

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

    The free version has a lot of great map layers, and setting waypoints is easier than most other apps. But I can not figure out how to have the app automatically orient to the ground. This may be a deal killer if I can figure it out. Would be 5 stars if
