WHAT OTHERS SAY

▶ “This app saved my life! * * * * *

This app was downloaded, while lost in the Kaimai Ranges. GPS quickly located position, app quickly (ish) downloaded the relevant NZ topo map. From there easily identified position on the map. Outcome, life saved. And my mates who by this stage was getting all girly about it all. Best app ever!!!” - Jk9624 on the UK App Store
