Thanks to @Artemus for asking for this feature.
I think I will go give him $20 to help out. What are the features you use and which ones were you used to using?
I love to research routes and plot routes. Doing that I can even collaborate with friends to both work on the same map.
I remember that now that you mention it.Yeah. I have a lot of maps that are still "private" but I can not make anymore new "private" maps until I make others public.... I think I waht I will do going forward is make my maps public, but download a backup file. Earlier this year I had someone accidentally use and modify a caltopo map of mine that I spend lot of time on. Luckily I had save a back up, but I was pretty terrified when I logged on and saw that everything in my map was changed.
Is that some kind of GIS program? Professional level?
Interesting use-case. I am such a strong user and advocate for GaiaGPS that this sounds much different than my use-case. I download all of the maps of three different layers before I head out to the boonies. Then I have all the data handy I need with me. I can switch between. Caltopo USGS topos, Google Terrain view and ESRI satellite layers with a simple toggle. It works really well and GAIA and those map layers are all free. GAIAGPS.com then stores all my mapping and acquired route data for me too. Their online map feature is pretty rudimentary compared to caltopo though. Other than that I love it.
Haha! $10 for a killer app that replaces a ~$300 GPS is not expensive!!
I beta tested GAIA pro for them and got it free. Once that expired I reverted to the $10 app I bought 4 years ago. No subscription. Unlimited maps. Can't really beat it if you are talking even just about $$$. Everyone's usecase is different though so stick with what you like.Gaia GPS: $19.99 + 39.99/yr for pro.
BackCountry Navigator: $11.99 + in app purchases for some maps
both cheaper than a GPS if you already own a smartphone Not a fan of the yearly subscription though. But BCN requires $20/yr for the topo shading feature that I like. That is why I was thrilled to find out that CalTopo maps work with the free Avenza PDF Maps for Android App.
