Description

Turn your iPhone into an outdoor or marine GPS, with USGS maps and NOAA charts.

The app includes access to the USGS topo maps for one state of your choice, and all the NOAA raster marine charts for the entire US. Additional USGS topo maps are $10 per state.

Although the app can be used standalone, the maps and overlay data can be used on your home computer for planning, and for printing maps on paper. Then upload everything to your phone and enjoy navigating outdoors with high quality maps.

When you get home you can transfer your tracklog and points of interest back onto your computer, to see where you actually went, analyze your speed and elevation profile, and so on.
