I've always liked the aspect of Avenza that provides navigable, downloaded maps because connectivity isn't always there. I haven't used it that much because there aren't always free maps for my immediate purpose, but this beta with OSM looks like a big deal to me. The app itself seems to be reliable and I like how they've made content easier to find.

I just started using Avenza Maps. I was looking for an app that would be accessible offline, and this seems to fit the criteria. I'll be using it in conjunction with GAIA to see how they compare. I appreciate that most maps I need are free. I'll re-evaluate and post after I've had an opportunity to use it both on and off line. Happy hiking and safe travels.

Excellent GPS mapping app. National parks and related maps are free in their "store" which I have used several times. My state of MN also has several free park maps. When you're backpacking or camping it has been invaluable, making my life much easier to see where you are via GPS overlaid a predownlpaded map. When you have one of these maps in backcountry, you won't get lost.
