Mobile Maps

Have you ever wanted your Backroad Mapbooks topographic maps downloaded and available for use on your phone? Well, now you can! Backroad Mapbooks has partnered with AvenzaTopo Maps+Locus and ViewRanger to bring our entire map catalogue directly to your mobile device through the App Store and Google Playstore.

Available for Apple iOS (Topo Maps+), Android smartphones and tablets (Locus Map) or both (Avenza and ViewRanger), these offline geospatial PDF readers let you use a variety of features and tools while well out of cell phone and data range, including GPS tracking, waypoint marking and more. The benefit of these apps over our Dynamic mobile maps is that, unlike the Dynamic maps, they feature our Adventure information including recreational trails and Points of Interest such as campsites, fishing hot spots, staging areas and more. These mobile maps are the perfect tool for exploring the Canadian backcountry, whether it be the sky-scraping peaks of BC’s Coast Mountains, the wild highlands of Nova Scotia’s Cape Breton or anything in between.
