Turn your iPhone or iPad into an outdoor GPS or marine chart plotter, with the detailed topo maps or NOAA marine charts needed for your activity. Maps are stored on the device for offline use, when you don't have any network connection. The GPS will show your location even where you have no mobile phone signal. The app can be used standalone, but the maps and overlay data may also be used on your home PC or Mac for planning, and for printing maps on paper. Then upload everything to your phone or tablet and enjoy navigating outdoors with high quality maps. When you get home you can transfer your tracklog and points of interest back onto your computer, to see where you actually went, analyze your speed and elevation profile, and so on. Whether you are fishing, paddling, backpacking, mountain biking or sailing, enjoy your time in the wilderness with Memory-Map. We have been developing mobile navigation apps since year 2000, and our products are trusted by mountain rescue teams and coast guard stations around the world.

  • Great detailed maps!

    I've used this app for many years now and it is my go to navigation aid. It is feature rich and does take some learning. Part of the learning is understanding what it is good at and what it is not so good at. It makes 180° errors too. U need a separate compass as a backup and sanity check. U can't rely on the 'navigate to' waypoint using the inbuilt compass and red/green arrow alone. You can't enter lat/long and zoom to that map point. Some of the route functions are a bit clunky. You can access tops maps for much of the planet and you can find your way. I've tried 3 or 4 others but this is the best and they keep improving it. Sometimes that's glitzy stuff that looks interesting but doesn't really impact but also things that make a difference. Highly recommended.
  • Favorite chart plotter

    Not one complaint with this program. I use the app on my iPad and the companion program on my laptop. Easy to transfer routes, tracks and charts back and forth.

  • Love it

    By MadCats360
    This app is extremely simple you will need to spend some time to familiarize yourself on its operations but it couldn't be simpler. I've actually started use it as a go between when doin research for reef fishing or as a backup and have had to use it as such. Total life saver and worth every penny. Would like to have additional offshore maps and inshore maps with increased detailed overlays.

    I bought this app a few weeks before a charter in St Pete. I was able to browse around the area and gain a comfort level from 500 Miles away. During the charter my phone spent a majority of the time sitting on top of the screen of the nice color chart plotter that was mounted on the boat. I found my phone was easier to read, much more responsive, and the screen was only a tiny bit smaller. One added perk, I was posting pictures of my trip on Facebook in real time. With this being on my iPhone I was able to take screenshots of the app so I could show friends where we were and how fast we were going with just a couple of clicks. Over all, very cool!
  • Crashes frequently

    By IowaTVman
    The newest version crashes frequently when trying to zoom in or out. No new functions added for a long time. But once the crash problem is fixed, I'd still give it 5 stars.
