About BackCountry Nav Topo Maps GPS

Use your Android as an offroad topo mapping GPS with the bestselling outdoor navigation app for Android! Try this DEMO to see if it is right for you, then upgrade to the paid version.

Use offline topo maps and GPS on hike trails without cell service! The GPS in your Android phone can get its position from satellites, and you don’t have to rely on your data plan to get maps. Have more fun and safe GPS adventures in the backcountry.

Preload FREE offline topo maps, aerial photos, and road maps on your storage memory, so they are ready when you need them.

Add custom GPS waypoints in longitude and latitude, UTM or MGRS grid reference. Import GPS waypoints from GPX files. Choose icons for waypoints much like in MapSource. (This app uses the WGS84 datum, NAD27 is available in settings).

Use GPS for hunting a waypoint or geocache, for recording tracks and GPS waypoints on your trip, all the while tracking your quest on topographic maps.

About topo (topographic) maps: Topo maps show terrain through color and contours, and are useful for navigation offroad. Topo maps and GPS can be used for hiking, hunting, kayaking, snowshoeing, & backpacker trails.

OpenStreetMaps and NASA landsat data worldwide.
OpenCyle Maps are topo maps that show terrain worldwide.
USGS Color Aerial photography.

Perfect for off road riding when no cell service is available.

P70%

My favorite offline map program. Easily export kml and gpx, multiple maps to keep offline, private lands available for a fee. Great for hunting, fishing, hiking, or any mountain activity.

Downloaded the demo version this morning, to test it before we buy the paid version. Went on a hike with my wife in mt rainier nat park(mowich lake area). Recorded our track and it showed that we were a 1/4 mile off the trail, when we were in fact on the trail. Then at the end of the hike it indicated that we had traveled 4.1 miles, when i know we traveled 7.8 miles. Whats up crittermaps. Am i doing something wrong.

O70%
by O####:

Love it! Used the 21 day free trial during my field geology class in new Mexico and land navigation courses. Just need to download quadrants of map before hand so you can use then offline. Just in case you don't have signal to download maps in real time.

K70%
by K####:

Used demo version for two years and finally upgraded to pro and none of my maps, routes, or waypoints will transfer. There is no online help on how to transfer. Why doesn't the developer include a way to transfer from demo to pro? This seems like a good help walkthrough to create.

H70%
by H####:

Ugh so ugly. Start it with topo maps and all I see is ugly rectangles and a bigass ad. Uninstalled.

N70%
by N####:

Great app. Takes ahwhile to learn how to use, but still the best navigation app I've used.

E70%
by E####:

Sure, it's not the simplest app to use but that's because it gives you so many good options. The instructions that open when you first navigate to each page help a lot. Great functionality once you figure it out!

Y70%
by Y####:

The best app ever. Ever since I bought, I have been sending so much harder in life. Thanks so much!!

J70%
by J####:

This is a great navigation app. I like that it comes with access to UK OS maps, supports offline maps, and that the NSW SIX maps are pre-configured. I upgraded to the paid version to get rid of the ads.

R70%
by R####:

This is an incredibly useful tool for backcountry navigation. It can be complicated and have a step learning curve, but the windows cue you with information until you check "I've learned this". Read the cues and then play around with it, I've found it very useful. Plan your trip when you have internet, plot some waypoints, then download the topo map tiles for offline use in the area. So long as you have a decent view of the sky, GPS satellite positioning will drop you onto the topo, regardless of microwave cell service. I just paid for the Pro version after realizing I use this app way too much not to promote the developers.

M70%
by M####:

Being an aging hunter, and the fact they keep changing the direction that "north" really is, this app helps me come out of the woods exactly where I went in. Great app and worth every cent!

P70%
by P####:

I used the demo for about a year. Being able to import my old tracks and waypoints and being able to export my trip files finally got me to purchase. Great app for remote hiking and hunting

X70%
by X####:

Great app for walking off into the great unknown and then getting back with ease. Works great on a Pixel XL. Plot waypoints, record tracks, download maps to storage for offline use. Responsive customer service too.

O70%
by O####:

I love this app and downloaded the paid version because I travel frequently around the country and using this has helped me locate and navigate all different types or terrain and learn new cities and wilderness. It's resources are incredible and fairly easy to use after just a few minutes. I really enjoy the expandability and the different layers. I also enjoy the customization and pins to locate different spots easily and that's why I upgraded and bought the paid version .

C70%

F70%
by F####:

Great detail in maps. Better than some paid versions

Y70%
by Y####:

Great app but how do you get rid of the straight line that connects the start and end points if they're different

J70%
by J####:

The demo version of the app has got me out of trouble on a number of occasions. So I thought it would be rude not to buy the pro version. Great app all round.

R70%
by R####:

I really like this app. But it can't be used because it takes way too much effort to select areas for download. You have to zoom in and select small areas. Makes it unusable because you can't get all the maps you need.
