  • More Cost Effective than Mud-Maps

    By OutbackSurvey
    I have been a loyal user of Mud Maps on my iPhone for a number of years. I'm Also a User of MacGPS Pro on my MacBook Pro 17". I was forced to Upgrade the iPhone 6S+ to iOS 11 by the Apple Store while purchasing an iWatch. Right away I found that my long used Mud Maps APP would no longer work. Downgrading to iOS 10 was not possible as the Apple Certificate showed expired by Apple after iOS10 was re installed. So I was stuck between a rock and a hard place. Upgrade to Mud Map at $99 as they refuse to make their App compatible with iOS11. OR By a Hema Maps APP at about the same price. Then I noticed that James & Asc. now have iHike for AUSTRALIA which uses the sam 250k NatMap Raster 250 Series Govt Maps that I have on DVD and that Mud Maps in Melbourne Use. So... for $17 I could get the Maps that I use for Prospecting the Outback each year. Great! I havent used the App too much as yet, but I will post an update when I find out more. I still think the title throws Australians off purchasing the App with the NZ in the title. Searches don't show it up as Australian Maps.
  • Poor

    By GuerrillaTeacher
    I found the app difficult to use and also poor quality. You can find your current location which I guess could be useful although apple and google maps does that too. Overall, I feel I wasted my money on this product
  • Amazing App

    By mr-euip
    Well this is a truly amazing App. I've been returning to NZ and tramping for several years now and the planning and execution of trips has never been easier. From home I can plan routes, campsites, zoom in or out and know everything I need to know, but then when I'm there it's an amazing thing to see a dot where I'm standing right there on my Topographical map confirming my location. Great Tool, Great Back up!
