    "Go on a trip outdoors"

    THE VERDICT

    US Topo Maps helps you take trips to the backcountry of the US, whether you’re an experienced outdoorsman or just someone looking to see what gems lie nearby your city. This app works by providing aerial images and topographic maps of almost anywhere in the U.S. You can also create and edit your waypoints to get around faster. US Topo Maps also features a handy GPS compass that shows you which way you’re facing or headed, right down to your exact GPS coordinates.

    THE PROS

    US Topo Maps may seem to have an overly complicated interface, but once you get up and running, you’ll find it’s quite easy to use. This app supports community-created and edited OSM, or Open Street Maps, and Google Maps. It’s also free to try out.

    THE CONS

    The free version of US Topo Maps features flashing advertisements, which quickly become quite annoying. You can’t download or load offline maps in the free version.

    Do you know that feeling when you feel like an app is going to suck? I felt that way before I installed, but after seeing how much data they have offer, I changed my mind. Google terrain, OpenStreetMap, esri, NASA night imagery, you name it! I am very impressed!
