I have been using this app before, main function is great - topo maps! But navigation in your app is horrible, the dashboard panel is hard to understand.. now app is not working for me, i assume i need to pay licence, i cannot even find where to buy it!! I advise you too make it more user friendly and intituitive.. I rather use web version than app

Hi Justė, thank you for using our app. We have been hard at work this year updating & improving the menus, to make them easy to use. When you wrote your review we had already released the first big set of changes to the world but it seems your phone had not automatically updated the app yet. Please try the new version & tell us what you think :-)

Yes, the ergonomics could be improved but functionality is BEST in CLASS, and the best I know for going hiking. So reliable I go for 7 days trek offline (mountains) without any paper map. (thank you solar panel). I use the paid version (yearly fee 14Eur), so I can download the maps before departure : great ! One request still : the app does not quit on my Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 : I need to force-quit, via parameter/apps/etc... to stop the GPS consumption Then may be 5 star !

downloaded the free version which was working fine. All very clear and easy to use. But now after a few days of use, when I try to zoom in to 1:50,000 all I get is red circles with a white centre. is this normal? is there some kind of limit on the free version of the app?

Bonsoir pendant 7 jours l'application propose un accès complet à toutes les cartes et fonctionnalités. Passé cette période pour avoir accès : - aux cartes IGN il faudra souscrire à l'abonnement "Géoportail 1 an" à 14,99€/an - aux fonctionnalités de l'application il faudra acheter le module Amax à 5,99€ pour + d'info à aide.iphigenie(at)gmail.com
