  • Cheap ripoff

    By Rockietopman
    The app is free. But maps available for download are copies paper maps. Some how they have them tied to GPS. But for an area you have to download several maps. In my example. The Rampart area is the same map with different resolutions. But only contains about half the area. The Rampart range goes way south of what is in the included maps. $11.95 of useless map. Maps range 80+mb X3. Not ready for primetime if you ask me.
  • Great app

    By cobrapete
    I have been using this app for several years for UTV riding in colorado and Utah. Excellent product, especially if you use a tablet. Obviously the app is dependent on a quality map, but there are lots. Very happy that you can now load National Geographic maps. Excellent quality.
  • Maps not truly accessible on multiple devices

    By walking joyce
    My husband purchased a map of the Sierra National Forest on our iPad. It supposedly could be accessed on multiple devices. He logs in to his Avenza account on his iPhone and there’s no map in his download history. He says to restore previous purchases and nothing happens. I try the same route. No previous downloads. Then the kicker: restore previous purchases requires me to be in his iTunes account. So even if there was a previous purchase to restore (which there wasn’t in his iTunes account on his iPhone), I wouldn’t be able to access it. The app doesn’t work as advertised.
  • Terrible .. don’t waste your time

  • Great maps!

    These maps work so well with a GPS or cell service if in range. I use mine with an external GPS with BT connection. Couldn’t live without!
  • Awesome!

    By doriannette
    I’m new to hiking, so having trail maps on my phone that track where I’m at live was so helpful!! We took the wrong turn once, but was able to quickly see our location and correct our mistake.
  • Enjoyable

    By tjcermd
    Hated setting it up but once there it was very helpful
  • Used to be a great free app

    Now charging to use more than 3 maps!! Don't upgrade!!!!!!!! Like most good apps the developers get greedy and strip away content and take your $$ to give it back.
  • Latest version of Avenza deleted hundreds of maps already imported.

    By repkovalev
    I’m currently hiking the Continental Divide Trail and had downloaded 423 individual geo codes PDFs from the CDTC into Avenza and they were all working fine. I also had installed all of Jonathan Ley’s map sets for the CDT into Avenza. Yesterday I updated the app to the latest version. Now, over 300 of the imported maps are completely missing when I look for them in My Maps - a feature Avenza is claiming they just improved! Additionally, the Jonathan Ley map sets do not appear anywhere in my maps. However, if I go to Avenza store to reinstall them the app claims they are already installed. If that is the case, they are not accessible to me in My Maps. Now, I’m on the trail at a motel with bad wifi and spending hours reimporting maps and not getting critical rest that I need for my they hike. You can imagine how upsetting this is. To say the least. Previously I have recommended the Avenza app to several hikers. I do not recommend upgrading an app while on the trail EVER! If it works - do no change anything. As far as the Avenza developer goes... releasing a version without testing the stability of its features - and critically speaking, its ability to retain purchases and imported maps - this is flabbergasting. It’s unacceptable. I should have known better than to update to a new version and I take partial blame for my current situation. Avenza has wasted my my money - and more importantly, valuable time and rest while actively on the trail.
