Why even offer a map with no names of the streets on it? Totally useless junk. Deleting it now.
Lindy Talbot's Review of Offmaps 2 Offline Maps For TravelersReviewed on 12/16/18 1:21 PM
We recently went to France on a two week vacation to Paris and then Nice. I was taking my Verizon iPad and knew I would not have persistent affordable data access throughout my trip, so I searched for a a map app that gave me locally-cached (i.e. stored on my i device) maps. I tried a couple of them before we left and OffMaps2 seemed the best. But it really shined once we got to France. Best features: - Ability to use the iPad's built in GPS receiver to show where in France I was at that point in time. - Very accurate maps of both locations - Great street search (even lots of stores and restaurants) all offline and plotted on the map - Bookmarks of located search results so they could be used to easily see and determine how to get from point A to point B I HIGHLY recommend this app. It was INVALUABLE in helping us find and navigate unfamiliar territory. It saved us countless hours and effort and let us maximize our vacation time. I dare say it even helped us avoid those annoying family arguments when trying to plan daily itineraries. GET THIS APP!

I downloaded the Dublin, Ireland maps. Wow!! This worked amazingly well. I have an iPhone 5, and I switched to airplane mode for my entire trip abroad. The GPS on the phone was able to detect my location on the Offmap, so it was perfect for navigation with no data plan or cell signal. This was extremely helpful as I navigated through the city. The rail map was helpful for the light rail routes (including stops) and the street maps were helpful as we navigated on foot or in a cab. The bus maps were slightly helpful, although there were so many lines running through the city that it was difficult to determine how each bus line traveled through the city or where the actual stop was. Overall, I would definitely recommend this app to anyone planning to travel abroad without using expensive international data plans. When you download the app you get credits to download a couple city maps. Double-check the Offmaps website first to be certain that the map for your desired destination exists, as I believe the development teams are still working to complete some countries.

The KEY feature from the original Offmaps that I purchased this app for was the ability to download maps for any location anywhere in the world at any level of resolution. So, in buying version 2, you would expect that you could still do that, right? After all, that's what made it a great app. No, now it only has a library of maps. Limited in number and pay for play. Sure, I guess I could REQUEST a map, but I'm pretty sure it won't be ready before I leave for Laos in 2 hours. Previously, I could download a map of a new location before I left and be all set to go when I arrived. It's probably an okay app if you're going to one of the cities they cover, but for those of us who wanted to use it for maps of locations off the beaten path, I guess we'll have to find another app to try.

I honestly cannot figure out how someone could give this low-cost app a low rating. Even a high-end garmin unit (I have several) will steer you wrong in step-by-step navigation, and that's not a reasonable standard to judge OFFMAPS by. It's not a substitute for a full-blown use-every-day GPS. For travel, backup GPS, and use off the data network this is a terrific bargain. Worth more than I paid. Good work, OffMaps.

I have now used this in five cities in Europe and South America. It provides great maps and information all on my phone, which I'm carrying anyway. I recommend this app.

downloaded map of Seoul, South Korea. It is way too simple and is missing vital information. Haven't used it in korea yet, but compared it to Google maps view and Offmaps only has busy roads and is missing small streets. Most of Seoul is small streets. I'll use it, but I imagine being lost often.

This app keeps crashing. Searched an address in Hong Kong and got 6 separate PINS on the same road. None were flagged with the building number. No instructions for how to delete PINS you don't need. Then it crashes! Wish it worked. Nice idea but sloppy code.

Probably fine for the selected maps that exist, and there is, of course, an option to request a map, but more trouble than it's worth. Not for me. Unfortunately, we can't get our money back. Oh well. I'll keep it in the off chance I'll need it someday. You won't know this unless you buy this, but in the USA, this seems to cover areas that have ready access to a cell signal. It may be useful overseas, though,

This is a very good app to move around coties you dont know well. it helps you locate yourself and the compass feature lets you know the direction in which you are walking. It's also very helpful in the fact that it does not use any data other than to load maps. Load maps while in your hotel with the free Wi-Fi and go about visiting the city.
