About this app

Offroad Navigation App with worldwide topographic maps (mainly Russian General Staff). For many countries in Africa and Asia these maps still belong to the best available topomaps.

Available map layers:
• Topomaps worldwide (worldwide seamless coverage, mainly 1:100.000)
• ROSREESTR The Federal Service for State Registration, Cadastre and Cartography
• Google Maps (Satellite images, Road- and Terrain-Map)
• Open Street Maps (OSM Mapnik, Osmarender and Cloudemade Cyclemap)
• Bing Maps
• ESRI Maps

This app gives you similar mapping options as you might know from Garmin or Magellan GPS handhelds.

Main features for Outdoor-Navigation:
• Create and edit Waypoints
• GoTo-Waypoint-Navigation
• Track Recording (with speed and elevation profile)
• Tripmaster with fields for odometer, average speed, bearing, elevation, etc.
• GPX,KML - Import
• Search (placenames, POIs, streets)
• Customizable datafields in Map View and Tripmaster (e.g. Speed, Distance, Compass, ...)
• Bulk-download of map tiles for OFFLINE USAGE (NOT in free version)
• Импорт Oziexplorer map format in OZF2 OZFX3 extension (NOT in free version)
• Импорт OpenStreetMaps in vector format (NOT in free version)
• Waypoint-/Track-Sharing (via eMail, Facebook, ..)
• and many more ...

Soviet Military Maps is the perfect moving map app for offroad trips, adventure travels and expeditions. You are planning cross country trips to Sahara desert or a trekking tour to the Himalayas ? With the Russian topos you have always a great alternative to other map sources. Beneath the good topography the maps include many small trails and unpaved roads that are missing in other map sets.
The Russian maps have additional English labels.
Attention: The Soviet Military Maps were created mainly in the 80ies and are less interesting for industrialized countries. Outside Africa and Asia you'll find the OSM / Google map layers more useful.
Please note: This app does not provide direct "Turn-by-Turn" navigation - but with a selected waypoint you can easily switch to Google Navigation.

There was a problem with location but it solved itself. Now it seems to work great, but I am really missing (or not seeing) one importante feature: indication of THE YEAR in which a particular military map sector was compiled.

Install this, and you will get the developer's long-available "Soviet Military Maps" app on your device. Then if you you go to "App Info">"App details in store," you will come back here. Not a big deal, unless you inadvertently buy the Pro version twice. The Soviet maps are a treat, even for otherwise well-mapped areas such as Western Europe, and there are other maps sources as well, including Open Topo Maps and Esri, so it is more useful than just the Soviet maps would be. The biggest disappointment is that Soviet maps are not provided for North America, instead USGS are substituted for the US, sources I am less familiar with for Canada and Mexico. The wonderful book, "The Red Atlas: How the Soviet Union Secretly Mapped the World," has many, many examples of how, even though the Soviets primarily copied USGS map content, they gave it their own twist, and added some information from other sources (spies? satellite imagery? National Geographic?). Map lovers may despair, but scanning all of the US would be a huge expense for minimal added utility., and I presume their corporate focus is on utility, not entertainment. An easy five (Red?) stars for the fascinating Советские карты, where they are provided. Minus two stars if I am allowed to pout about missing north American coverage.

I used app' in 2016,it is good user friendly interface.However the developer should improve on grid accuracies, waypoints activation which exceeds more than 3 positions on the map,it embarrasses bcoz of limited savings of user's points on the map.improve on, make it a 4or 5 generation map, allow it to use satellites aerial map.
