I’m always looking for a better setup when it comes to having an offline topo map program for my phone and tablet.
I can’t count how many times I’ve been outside of cell service and used an offline map to find my way when Google Maps was not available.
Today I found one that is head and shoulders above any that I’ve used in the past.
You want to spend the $7.49 and get the Pro version but they have a free version you can play with first.

Downloading the whole state of Oregon took a few minutes and is a tiny 285 mb file!
I’m just beginning to see all the functionality of this app, and it has plugins written for it that look promising. Check it out.
