Looking for an iPad map program
Posted 15 September 2015 - 09:11 PM
Background: I've had an iPad for about a month. I loved the Apple Map program that came with it, except the part that it needed a Wifi connection to work, so looked for a map program that worked offline.
Tried MAPS.ME which was great for a week, then it started crashing like it is apparently famous for in many reviews. Tried to get it working, but only deleting and reinstalling worked. That requires downloading all the individual maps again. I have a slooow internet connection so this is a chore, and brings up how devastating it could be if I relied on this app and it were to crash during a trip. I don't want to end up like James Kim because of an unreliable app.
I looked at dedicated GPS units on Amazon, but they are small, and a joke compared to the usability of an iPad when a map app actually works.
Is there a map app that is can be restored/reinstalled without an internet connection? I found that iTunes did not backup the maps that maps.me downloaded, just the app itself.

click the little tricky link and you can see a YouTube video.
I've been wanting to try google maps offline on my Android tablet but haven't spent any time trying to figure it out.

I grab a paper map or a route print out from the internet, again on paper, so it will take some time for me to figure out this "new" method of using a device to view maps.
