is available as a Giveaway of the day!

Trekarta is designed for hiking, geocaching, off-roading, cycling, boating and all other outdoor activities. It uses offline maps so you do not need to have internet connection. You can easily import places and tracks from GPX and KML data formats or create places in application and share them to others. It lets you write the track of your journey, even in background, so you will never get lost and be able later see where you've been.

Offline maps

Trekarta uses OpenStreetMap based vector maps that are lightweight, offline and are constantly enhanced by contributors. Maps contain detailed topological data with elevation contours. Some map elements can be filtered out for cleaner look. Trekarta has built-in hillshades support. You can add custom maps in sqlite or mbtiles format to cover your area of interest. Custom maps will be shaded as well. Such maps can be created by yourself with SAS.Planet application from mostly any online source or converted with MapTiler and other applications from other map formats.

Hiking

Special hiking activity mode emphasises paths and tracks on map. It visualizes path difficulty and visibility and displays hiking routes. It also displays special OSMC symbols that help you identify desired route.

Cycling

Cycling activity mode reveals bicycle infrastructure. It shows cycling routes and visualizes mountain biking track difficulty and visibility.

Skiing and skating

Skiing activity mode displays clean winter map with mostly all skiing activities: downhill, nordic, hiking and touring. As a bonus freestyle snow-boarding, skating and sleighing areas are displayed.

Off-road

Unpaved, dirt, winter and ice roads are specially visualized. 4wd only roads have specific marking. Fords are displayed on all roads, even primary.

Places

Places can be easily imported from GPX and KML files or can be created within application. You can navigate to places and share them with others.

Tracks

Trekarta is designed to record tracks of your journey. Simply press a button when you start and press it once more when you finish. You can quit the application if you do not need to look at the map, the track will be recorded in the background.

Plugins

Trekarta functionality can be extended by plugins. Currently the following plugins are available:
• Location sharing
• Dropbox sync

app download size 12.68 mb, maps are 54.43 mb - ttl about 67 mb. I had no problem with downloading maps. Seems to do what it says.

Dark mode looks great in pitch black but very hard to see in normal and dim light.

Jack, the Dark Mode thing seems to be device dependent. On my phone it was nearly impossible to see in dark mode. On my Galaxy tablet, the shapes are are clearly visible even in normal bedroom lighting (two 60 watt equivalent bulbs)

Downloading my area map: hanging at 78% for the last hour.
The app in itself seems okay but if you can't actually download maps into it, it's a bit pointless. I'll probably uninstall it.
