About this app

Finally, the high quality of the TABACCO maps in digital. The application is free and you can buy the Tabacco maps divided into modules map. The application also allows you to share your trips on a community www.tabaccomapp-community where you can review your trips in 3D!
The application is suitable not only for hiking, trekking and Nordic Walking enthusiasts, but also for those who prefer MTB excursions or, in winter, snowshoeing or ski mountaineering.
WARNING: "Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life."
ZOOM: The maps can be zoomed out for an overview, or in to explore the terrain in minute detail. You will appreciate the high quality of the digital maps!
TRACK RECORD: Via the GPS incorporated in the device, you can save your own excursions, assigning a different color and a description to each one for instant recognition.
SIGNALS: Within the excursion, you can identify various POI, to which you can assign icons selected from the large number available (for example: parking place, footpath interrupted, old military station, mountain pass, etc.).
SHARING: Trails and waypoints are immediately available for sending by e-mail by simply TAPPING an icon.
IMPORT: It's possible to export your own trail, and just as easy to import one suggested by a friend and supplied in the form of a .gpx file, complete with waypoints.
PHOTO: Photos taken along the way will be saved and georeferenced for possible future use.
AR+: Using the Augmented Reality (AR+) facility, when you look at the horizon with your device you will be able to recognize mountain peaks with their name and height, mountain cols and passes, mountain refuges, bivouacs and locations, based on a user-defined kilometric distance scale.
CATALOGUE OF MAPS – How to buy them: From the application itself, you can access a catalogue that provides images of maps already purchased, of those available for purchase and of those that will shortly be available.
SAFETY SERVICE: One of the most important features of this application is the “safety service”. This function allows users, who must first have registered, free of charge, on the web site, to indicate someone they trust who, if required, will be able to follow the excursion in real time, also with a 3D display. The importance of this function is essentially that of being able to give the hiker's last known position to the rescue services, in the unfortunate event of an accident. This function is only active if a mobile telephone signal is available.

Ridiculously slow, clunky and unintuitive. Unresponsive and hard to understand. No contact for support on the website, half of the explanations are in Italian. To hike the Alta Via you need to download about 20 individual tiny maps at $2.50 each and EACH NEEDS A SEPERATE TRANSACTION. There is no way to plot a route, gps always pulls you back to your location even if you're trying to look elsewhere. Slow, clunky and full of bugs. There are far better apps than this. Don't waste your money here.

Great maps, alas not compatible with 3rd-party full-featured hiking GPS apps. The app itself is very basic, clumsy to use. The website mentions a version 2.0 app, whereas only 1.3.9 is offered for download. Also, the website mentions tiles new since July 2020, but do not show up in the grid (E03Z,E04Z,E05Z, I assume the Z row is above the A row). How to get those? Could you fix the weird hole in E03B? Why is the Sile map so weirdly cut out and the area not available as regular tiles?

The numbering on the 1:25:000 part of the app shows multiple map numbers but these bear no correlation to the numbering on the printed tabacco maps that you can buy. For example, i searched for an hour for 031 (Pragser Domiten - Enneberg - Dolomiti di Braies - Marebbe) and it is impossible to find Lago di Braies or to know what numbers to use. I even used Google Maps to search for nearby locations but this was no use. Stick to the printed maps and a compass.
