Review from Terry O'Connor
The backcountry road maps are pretty accurate for wheelie in the bush couldn't get it to actually work for directions in town or route plan with it. Just getting it again on my new phone. I did manage to get routes to load. However the search option doesn't find nearby places (addresses) and nearby parks,towns etc easily. Also I can not seem to alter the route. For example I put in directions to Sloquet hot springs. The route the app selected is a very rough road compared to the parralel road that also gets you there. It would be nice to select other roads with the touch of a finger. Please improve and get back to me. Thanks for the prompt response on my last review
October 11, 2017Hello! Here at MAPS.ME we develop the app, but we get all the data from OpenStreetMap.org. If you find that objects are missing, you can edit the map: http://bit.ly/2tbdpgc. Make sure you’ve updated the maps. If the issue continues, specify coordinates of start and end points of the route and send your search inquiry at email@example.com.
Superb navigation app. Butt its not so fast some times its loading verry long time and cant find where i am, and its saying that im in tunel, but im on a free way with no tunels. for corecting this bag im always need to conect to internet... But what i will do if i dont have no net...and i dont know the way where i came...... ? this bug i saw on (samsung galaxy a, j, and s) series..
I got this to use in Costa Rica and it was amazing. I don't speak Spanish so I used this on the bus and it showed me exactly where I was so I knew when to get off. It's really acurate! I've also used this at home in Canada, and I don't know if it's advertised to do this but I've been able to use this when I'm hiking. It even shows some trails which is super helpful when you're out of service range and a little bit lost :)
I love maps me because it is the only true alternative to Google Maps. It's open source, it requires far fewer permissions. The best feature is that it works without net coverage, so awesome for hiking. The navigation is a work in progress and not as good as that of Google Maps, however, given the other advantages this is my favorite app for wayfinding.
Excellent offline map app. I've used it for years in America, Europe and Asia. Only download the maps you need. Then they incorporated a STUPID feature that requires a general world download before it can be used. This poorly thought out plan locks out use of the app if you are on the road needing a map as i was. Can't use the app till you're back to wifi coverage. No way to bypass the download request.
This app has misspelled my province of QUEBEC as QUEBEK!! I alerted customer service many times but to my surprise -they can't see it? Even after I sent them 'screen shots' clearly showing this blatant error, they don't acknowledge anything...They truly don't know what they're doing. I DON'T RECOMMEND MAPS.ME. They are amateurish at best...
Used to be quite good. After update of map it cant find the location unless wifi or dataline is on. Useless for offline now unless bug is fixed. Disappointed Update - Did what the app developer had suggested and it seems to work. Will try it out again when on another road trip. Thanks to app developer for quick response.
