Great Start

Does all the basics. Please keep adding features! I'd love to be able to draw on the map with my surface pen!




Platform: Mobile

Worst ever!

This app was great, while it lasted. Now it has ceased to function and no longer opens or installs from Windows Mobile. One star is too much!




Platform: PC

Continues to be a great resource

Still one of the best solutions for map sharing within wildland fire. Would be nice to be able to save points without a base layer though.

Mostly not functional

FAA sectional pdfs are referenced but app says no. Also, tools button does nothing. Would be a very useful app, hope they get it right.

Nice App

Thanks Avenza, nice to have access to great maps at your fingertips and far away from wifi. Now, if Microsoft quits messing with your app with it's crazy updates all will be well.

Great For Mountain Biking

I'm really glad we have this app. It helped me out a lot while biking at 3 Stage in Ontario. The map was old, but that's not up to Avenza since it's made by someone else. I did have it crash once while adding a picture to a pin, but other than that it was perfectly stable. I'll definitely be using this more in the future. Thanks for supporting WP!




works on pc yes but win phone it doesnt

Your misleading by saying this works on windows phone - it doesn't, works fine on pc, I downloaded & tested but cannot download onto my phone - if I can then point out how to me cos everything points me towards not being able too even though you quite clearly mention windows phone as a device this works on. Oh & I didn't need to update to win 10 either to use it - again misleading.

Great app

I don't think they are very clear about what this app does. It downloads and displays existing pdfs of maps. The maps can be imported from another hard drive, or obtained through the map store. Many of the maps are free. For example, USGS topographical maps are free, as are state highway maps, and others. You can put down markers anywhere you want, with the coordinates listed. You can include a note with the marker as well. It is really a great program for map users.

One of the Few

One of the few easy to use mapping programs. This is a great start for a Windows version of PDF Maps. Please continue upgrades and enhancements. I would like to see this work directly with the map store so I can download maps purchased with other devices (Android/iOS). Keep up the good work!
