Weak interface Appears to be exactly what I'm looking for but can't use, it hangs. No google map search or ch ordination entry, so one zooms around a Google map looking for a match point. Problem is after a dozen zooms and moves the whole thing freezes.im on a note 4
Brilliantly simple I like Custom Maps very much, and prefer it to complex "trekking" apps. I photograph old maps to help me appreciate how roads, buildings have changed, and to identify archaeology. It compliments a map and compass. I calibrate my maps in Google Earth - see YouTube - and email .kmz files to my phone which opens them in Custom Maps - brilliant. I've not yet experimented with Placemarks. I have sometimes thought that extra features would be good, but actually I really appreciate the simplicity of this app.
Elegant design I've georeferenced maps from my PC, but couldn't imagine doing it on a phone (a Galaxy S4 in my case) until I tried Custom Maps: quickly producing a map of a botanical garden from onliine, as well as a hiking map based on the one I photographed at the trailhead. That Custom Maps works so well is a testament to Marko Teittinen's great design sense, plus the ability to make use of Google Maps and imagery in establishing tie-points. Like other users, I'd also like to see a simple track function and waypoints. But Custom Maps does exactly what it says it does--extremely well.
Solves such a simple problem I love the simplicity of this app. Perfectly implemented. Much appreciation to the dev!
Amazing, awesome app! I've been looking for a simple app like this for a long time. It's not just the simplicity, it's the functionality that's great and easy to use. Currently working on a nationwide soil mapping survey and this will make field surveys much easier as I can prepare background maps with ease. It is also simple enough to teach the not too tech savvy how to use it. Some nice features would be conversion to decimal degrees, or GPS point recording on intervals or manually and an option for export.
Wow I wish I found this earlier! Finally someone created an app that easily handles custom maps! I've used orux and backcountry navigator and they are great for POIs, tracks and routes, but this beats them all because of the kmz overlay functionality. Wow. I've been digital mapping for 15 years and this is the first time I've seen something great since way back with gpsdash v1 or gpstuner. I'd love to donate to this developer. You've made my day. And maybe could you add a track recorder, waypoint editor, and maybe a route editor? I
- Fix for non-working menu button on tablets in landscape mode
- Reduced text size on small devices to fit UI better.
- Russian and Croatian translations
