iOS no service areas free map app recommendations

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone:

 

Have any of you had a positive experience with maps on your iPhone that can be pre-loaded for areas with no service?

 

map.me is highly recommended, but doesn't have much of Michigan.  I'd like to pre-load Michigan, or at least a few counties, as a backup to my Garmin.  I don't mind spending a little money.  

 

Thanks-

 

Brent

I download HuntX maps to my iPad for use in remote areas.

I download my hunting areas prior to leaving the house using OnX, works great when there was is no cell service and the GPS feature still works.

Ive used ONX maps in Dakotas and Montana and found them outstanding. Last year I used Northwind maps in Michigan and was very pleased.

OnX maps is excellent for this and much more.

Northwind maps is improving in this area and is in the midst of rolling out the latest iteration of their mobile service. I've had some hands-on time with it and it's really slick! For the grouse and woodcock hunter, Scout-N-Hunt from Northwind is going to be an excellent tool for scouting cover and navigating both at home and most importantly, in the field.

 

Additionally, I use a very basic GIS application called Map Plus to download and store satellite imagery of areas I intend to hunt. It takes a little manipulating and upfront work but it's a great tool and I like knowing that I've got a quality satellite imagery base map combined with GPS tracking wherever I go.
