Geo Kruger Posted October 19, 2014 Share Posted October 19, 2014 (edited) Hi all, I've been looking for some help. Can anyone recommend a solid topo map viewer for ipad? My primary GPS is a Garmin eTrex 20, I don't have a desktop or laptop computer but I do have an iPad. I've been looking for a piece of sofware that would allow me to simply view Topo maps as well and mark waypoints and maybe some additional mapping/planning functions. When I get home I like to view where I've been on a topo map and simply plug in a few waypoints for perspective, I like doing it on a computer mainly so I don't have to stare at a small gps screen all the time. It's more just for fun than anything, I know there are a good deal of apps out there but I thought I would get some opinions if possible before purchasing. I know that Gaia and Phil Endecotts software are very well received. I'm also aware that there are many reviews out there, but almost all of them focus solely on the softwares function as an offline GPS. I really could care less for this function, as I use my etrex for gps and NOT my ipad. In short, I'm simply looking for something to view USGS maps and mark waypoints here and there. If anyone has experience with any such software and has something good to say, feel free. Thanks a lot! -Scott Update (10/19/14): I also do not care about etrex20 connectivity, as this is challenging/not possible with an iPad. This is a completely seperate entity.
