Great for hiking. Download USGS topo quads, import custom kmls, put phone into airplane mode to conserve battery, and I'm set. I like how you can create one main layer and use it across all maps. It makes organizing data much easier. I'd like the ability to pin maps to the top as "favorites" though. That would be helpful.

The details on the map (i.e. the scale and the size of the icons) do not allow for enough specification to tell exactly where you are or where the trails turn. In addition, every PDF I try to open defaults to this app and I can't find a place to turn that off. As a result I can't read any other PDF I download.

The associations between file extensions, like pdf, and apps are managed by the operating system. https://pdfviewer.io/faq/android-how-to-clear-a-different-pdf-app-from-always-opening-my-pdf-documents/ As for the map issue please try finding a larger scale map or contact us directly at support@avenza.com and we will help you.

I have used Avenza mapa for several years and it used to work flawlessly. Admittedly I haven't used it for the past couple years, but now I want to use it again and it just won't function correctly. I can load a map from QR code, the app just sits there and keeps trying to focus. When I look for a publisher to but a map from it won't load a publisher list or search for the one I typed in. So at this point it is just taking up space on my phone and not useful at all. UPDATE: It eventually worked
