    There’s no detail. Worthless unless you’re staying on the interstates.

    If it would let me rate it no stars I would have. Your paying $9.95 and all you get is a map of each state. You can that for free from google. I got it thinking there would be a mileage calculator or some other nifty things Rand McNally has in regards to travel. The only menu item this app even has is a legend of each map. LOL. I suppose that’s enough if you don’t already know the difference between an interstate and a dirt road while looking at a map.
  • Not what you would expect from Rand...

    My review in 2 words... "sorely dissapointed". This app is nothing of what I would expect from this "former" map giant. A broad overview of the U.S. with no indivual states to dive deeper. Only major roads with a sprinkling of secondary roads, and no real detail of either. I found it insulting to see the gray border "area shown with greater detail on inset map" still in the legend but alas no such thing. I would encourage RM, to dig a whole lot deeper if they intend on being in this digital landscape. I would be interested if they would consider giving me my money back, it's that bad. Additionally, the reported file size is 667 MB? For a legend and a single image of the U.S? This is extreme bloatware and, if one was to go negative, a spyware app...
  • It's an atlas, folks!

    Perfect. Exactly what it claims to be...a digital version of a road atlas that works when offline. If you're looking for a navigator to make your decisions for you this is not for you. But if you're a serious "road tripper" who goes out on the road with no set itinerary and wants to stop and make travel decisions along the way this is the "modern" way of carrying a bulky paper atlas or a collection of cumbersome paper maps. One feature I'd like to see (which I'm sure could be implemented with today's technology)....tapping an adjoining state when you reach the current state's boundaries should open up the new state's map. This app is a road-tripper's dream come true. People with no sense of adventure, or no desire to make their own decisions need not apply.
  • I love it!!

    I love this offline app. It’s a very handy tool. I can see the big picture. Quick to use! I trust Rand McNally more then I do Google Maps. I just love the oldschool paper maps. This app is just an added bonus, along side with the Rand McNally paper maps. Appreciate all that you do!

    This is exactly what I’ve been looking for, an atlas! Apple, Google, GM, and others could learn a thing or two regarding clear, clean, easy to read maps. What I love: - Rivers — especially when driving on the Plains, it’s great to be able to quickly trace a river and see where its source and end are; a quick way to look at early trails and settlement patterns. Good luck tracing let alone finding a label for a river on modern maps (which, to be fair, are designed for road navigation). - US and state highways, backroads, and scenic routes are clearly labeled and easy to follow! Apple, Google, and especially some of GM’s latest map software just fades these roads from view unless one zooms in to just a couple miles of scale. - Places of Interest — actual POIs, not just gas stations, restaurants, and the like! Suggested improvement: - Double tapping on a neighboring state takes you to that state’s map. Thanks for publishing these maps! They are crystal clear, easy to read, and give a great bird’s eye view for almost any trip, especially medium- to long ones.
  • iPhone X Display Update Needed

    App needs an update to take advantage of iPhone X screen capacity. An organization of Rand’s magnitude should be able to churn this update out posthaste.

    It’s a map. It’s not a GPS and doesn’t pretend to be. Some other reviewers apparently don’t know the difference. My guess is that some of them have never seen a map and don’t understand the concept of “getting the big picture,” which is easier with a map. This app is just what I wanted it to be: an exact copy of their paper atlas but in a format that can fit on a tablet. There is a trade-off, of course, in that you can’t see a whole state all at once. It does lack an index, which is the reason for only four stars. Adding an index would, of course, require letters and numbers along the top and sides of the map, which would have to expand as you zoom the map. Or better yet, an index where you could tap on an entry and be taken right to the place on the appropriate map. I won’t hold my breath for that feature; meanwhile I am reasonably happy with the app as it is.

    It’s a nice picture of major roads. That’s it. If you’re actually looking to get anywhere without a GPS, this isn’t for you. It will not help you find your location at all. Printing your route off Google Maps before you leave will work much better than this ever will. Save your money.
  • Just paper atlas on ipad

    This would be fine if it showed your current location on the map but it does not. There are plenty of free maps apps that show your location on the map.
