This includes: • Updated maps from the 2019 Road Atlas for all 50 states, including Canadian provinces, Mexico and Puerto Rico. • No connectivity required after download. • Detailed inset maps for large cities and national parks • Pinch-and-zoom functionality • Alphabetical drop-down list of all available maps • Slide-out map legend for reference As a bonus, two classic Rand McNally maps included at the end of the map list: • 1883 Railroad Map featuring Chicago & Alton R.R. • 1920 Railroad Map



  • Exactly as advertised

    By robryd
    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.
  • A Waste of Money

    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

    By EZFL
    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.
  • Don’t purchase

    By BeautifulArtistMess
    Worse application I ever purchased. Shows no rest areas or distance. Zoom is awful. Don’t purchase this. Lots of free maps that do s better job. Wish I could get my money back.
  • I expected much more from this company

    By IvisonR
    Really this is not an app for say like a driving up. It’s essentially a PDF of the regular road atlas she would get from the store. You have no search functions. Also many of the roads are outdated. I’m talking bypasses that it been built 15-20 years ago are not on this map. Plus when you get to Mississippi and various other states and try to select view cities it doesn’t bring up anything.
  • Good Atlas...

    By Wulkant
    but don’t expect more than you would from a paper copy. ————— Developer: Please add more intuitive navigation: 1 tap to open a neighboring state or an enlarged view! Error reports: US 62/180 IS 4 lane divided highway from Carlsbad NM, SW to the Texas state line. TX 349/349business is 4 lane from Patricia TX to Midland. US 67 is NOT 4 lane from US 90 to the Pecos county line; it is mostly 2 lane with occasional passing lanes. US 84 doesn’t lose it’s 4 lane expressway status at US 180. Albuquerque map: the westernmost road labeled Paseo del Volcan has been renamed Atrisco Vista Blvd. The southwestern most road labeled Chavez Blvd is actually Dennis Chavez Blvd. Also, the entire length of Coors Blvd through the city now has the designation of state hwy 45; hwy 448 has been truncated to where it ‘T’s into hwy 45 near Cottonwood Mall.
  • Very Handy App

    By 4best
    This is a very handy App, especially for anyone who travels a lot on the road. No big frills, just a very handy road atlas.
  • Don’t listen to bad reviews

    By Fthomas21
    This is a great app. Yes, it is NOT a navigation app nor georeferenced or zooms into fine detail. If you want that buy an app that does that. This is a good old fashioned map in digital format. I use navigation apps often, but I like to see the big picture in a simple format. I use this app as often or more than navigation apps.
  • Not Georeferenced

    By Deekyn
    I don’t write reviews normally, but this app is terrible. It is not georeferenced and cannot use your location. It is simply maps on a screen. This is simply unacceptable for a map app to not use georeferenced maps. What a waste of $10. Don’t bother unless you just like looking at maps on your phone.
  • Really? No index? A paper map is better.

    By Florida Tbom
    I expected this to be like buying the paper atlas. There is no way to look up a city. You look at a picture of the map. You can zoom in some. It has landscape and portrait viewing. That's about it. No list of cities. No idea if a city will be on the map, if you take the time to scroll over the whole thing. At least a paper map has an index on the back. Overpriced for such a limited non-app.
