« How's it Work? »
Just select the cities, regions, or even whole countries you want to download, and it will be available for offline use, complete with information on thousands of POIs (Points of Interest), travel guides and Wikipedia articles.
To do this we utilize community driven open data from a number of amazing projects. We use some magik to compress and package it in a format optimized for mobile devices. Pocket Earth then renders its beautiful vector maps on your device using our OpenGL ES based MagikMap technology.
To learn more about Pocket Earth or the community driven open data sources that we use, please visit our website.
Don’t forget this:
1. Using the GPS features of this app can significantly affect battery life. Only leave GPS enabled when you need to use it. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Pocket Earth only uses GPS in the background for route navigation and gps track recording features.
2. This app uses data from the amazing community driven open mapping project called openstreetmap.org! Coverage detail may vary by region, please visit our website to check the map detail for your regions of interest.
3. Does not currently support all asian texts on the map (Chinese, Japanese, etc).
This Pocket Earth update brings you a lot of great improvements:
• Photo attachments on Pins.
• A new pin button in the main menu to drop a pin precisely at your current location. (It drops in center of screen if you have GPS disabled.)
• A new easier to see GPS indicator icon along with a new setting to change its color.
• Net altitude difference has been added to the waypoint info panel.
• If you copy map coordinates into the clipboard in another app, Pocket Earth now detects this and offers to jump to that map location when opening the app. It even works with Google map links.
• Numerous bug fixes and more!
