Backpacker Map Maker Lite
iOS iPad Travel
BACKPACKER Map Maker Lite is GPS mapping software for your iPad. Plan backpacking and camping trips, and other outdoor adventures on detailed, interactive topo maps and aerial photos. Get instant access to more than 68,000 topographic maps in the US and Canada.
Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
