Trails Maps by National Geographic features high-resolution, seamless scans of authentic USGS topographic maps, including the USGS 1:100,000-scale and 1:24,000-scale series. Copyright dates for these maps vary and not every trail in the U.S. is shown.

National Geographic welcomes your feedback and will be adding new features and content to the app in the future.

Compatibility:
- GPS live tracking and compass require an iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4 to be fully functional.
- The app requires iOS 4.0+.
- Due to large file size and high resolution of the maps, please allow for a few minutes for download with a strong WiFi or 3G connection.
- Continuous use of GPS tracking, even if running in the background, can decrease battery life when left unchecked.

“It's basically command central for any hiking trip.” – Gizmodo App of the Day

“With a price tag of just US$2.99, Trail Maps offers a lot of value for anyone in need of backcountry navigation.” – Gadling
