To do this we utilize community driven open data from a number of amazing projects. We use some magik to compress and package it in a format optimized for mobile devices. Pocket Earth then renders its beautiful vector maps on your device using our OpenGL ES based MagikMap technology. To learn more about Pocket Earth or the community driven open data sources that we use, please visit our website. Don’t forget this: 1. Using the GPS features of this app can significantly affect battery life. Only leave GPS enabled when you need to use it. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Pocket Earth only uses GPS in the background for route navigation and gps track recording features. 2. This app uses data from the amazing community driven open mapping project called openstreetmap.org! Coverage detail may vary by region, please visit our website to check the map detail for your regions of interest. 3. Does not currently support all asian texts on the map (Chinese, Japanese, etc).

    Invaluable for travel or just exploring past the reaches of the wireless internet.

    I wrote this last year and have used Pocket Earth Pro even more since then. An essential travel tool which only gets better. “Fantastic app for any traveller. Offline maps including location based wiki articles and tons of layers to show or not. Very smooth scrolling in/out. Import POI's or add within the app - and create routes for offline,voice guided driving. Even shows one-way streets in tiny Spanish towns! I never leave home without it.”

  • Great app for outdoor!

    Amazing app! Way to customize the route such as avoid hill in cycling is something never seen in other apps! At any time any location you can see your moving speed and altitude. So many features am so excited about. Real masterpiece if you are all for outdoor activities! Better than any other popular and heavily advertised apps out there! Don’t get blown away by so many options initially. Once you get used to it, it’s hard to find anything else that can compete with this one!

    Worked great for 2 years, no longer works outside of cell range and no response from customer service regarding this.

    Pocket Earth is excellent. The downloadable offline maps make it easy for travel without a network connection. Routing requires a network connection - but you can save the route and use it, the map and location without a connection. Pocket Earth supports What3Words addressing! Fantastic to know which door of a building to meet - or where to meet family or friends in a big venue. I store my what3words locations in Pocket Earth & organize them in folders. Traveling through Korea & Japan was easier because of Pocket Earth. I could load maps for areas we would visit when I had a network connection - then use them later without. I could delete the maps for locations already visited to save memory. Walking directions were good. If you get off route it tells you - but does not recompute until you tell it. You can see your position on the map along with your planned route. This as an advantage for short sightseeing detours. It may not be desired while driving, but biking/hiking it is a good thing. Re-Routing requires a network connection. Points of interest were accurate. Wikipedia markers were useful to learn about nearby information and history. Keep your eyes open for interesting places. It is impossible to be totally inclusive. For example the Matsumoto Time Piece museum wasn't listed. (What3Words location curing.fizzy.fleshes) Well done & useful - especially incorporating what 3 words addressing. A travelers friend.
  • It just works!

    Love this off-line map program for international travel (not burning up data) and hiking. Many times I will hike in areas without cell signal and need Pocket Earth’s maps. Also great for finding trails and for marking my route so I know how to get back. Great App!
  • So close, but not good for rural users

    I’ve used a number of offline maps apps. This one is so close to being great... but for rural users, not close enough. Minor roads, especially unpaved back roads, don’t appear on the map until you zoom WAY in. They completely disappear when you zoom back out just a little. I get that not everyone wants to see the back roads, but a lot of us do. Even just faint gray lines visible at all zooms would do it, or an option to show minor roads. It’s frustrating that the roads are in the database, but made to be invisible. Until this is addressed, fellow backcountry navigators will want to look elsewhere.

  • Great app, woefully out of date maps

    When I first found this app, they promised to update the data every couple weeks. A few years later and I’ve found that updates seem to come 6mo apart or worse. Given that the maps are derived from OSM, the maps are being improved *daily*. I just looked at an area that I know was updated months ago with more detail, yet even after updating the data is missing. I’ve contacted the developer in the past and when they bothered to respond they gave promises of updates that then failed to materialize. Very disappointed.
