Other offline mapp apps allow us to create our own areas for offline use them add kml overlay for trails. No such luck here. At all. [Response:] I am not able to download free maps. You charge for the maps. I switched to another app. Several free maps immediately available. Just saying [Response:] I just installed again and no usable maps we're available like Open Roads, Open Topo, etc. I'm uninstalling again. I have 2 other apps working perfectly in less time than this conversation.

You are wrong. We have over half of the over 1 million maps for available for free. If you want to download free maps then that is possible & give us a chance to help and show you. We allow KML import so you can create KML layers & then import them into Avenza Maps for off-line use. Please contact us directly via https://bit.ly/3MBbFQZ . Thank you

Does not support older maps you have paid for. Very disappointed to find that an older map pack I purchased was somehow discontinued. When I tried to redownload I get an error message. Thanks for charging me for something and not continuing to support my purchase. I would highly recommend users seek other mapping programs that will continue to support maps you pay for. I don't know if something broke down with the nat geographic map packs and avenza, but they should refund those who paid

Sorry to hear that you are having issues with the map bundle. Maps you have purchased before remain in your account and can be redownloaded later. The only exception is if a publisher discontinued a map for safety reasons. If you haven't yet, please reach out to us via support.avenzamaps.com/hc so we can look into this further and get you access.

I found this app in Smokey Mountain National Park where, in lieu of printed maps, it was offered as a free download along with a free map bundle for back country hiking offline. It worked perfectly, and very intuitively for this 60 year old photographer. I discovered that I could also link my images to my recorded route to see exactly where things were. After leaving the park, I found many other uses for the app due to the extensive collection of maps and charts available, many of them for free.
