Maplet - App for iphone and iPad users

Came across this app for the ipad and iPhone called Maplets via Bicyclenomad. It looks really interesting and could be handy for making use of local maps such as those produced by Councils and the like.



I played with it on my iPad using local maps and it seemed to work well. It interfaces with the GPS and the maps are downloaded.

No Android version it seems

Could be useful for bicycle touring and of course other riding and walking.

Andrew

Love this app. Even if it just served as a place to collect all of my PDF maps, it would be cool, but thE part where it can take some mps and use the gps to show your location is fantastic.

I got turned on to MAPLETS by the Joe Cruz blog. Its pretty awesome. It has my local Indianapolis Bike Map in it.

Basically the company takes scale maps, with specific themes and overlays them onto the GPS grid. Be it a local trail map, a theme park or whatever, as long as it is scale their GIS experts quickly match up the corners and BAM you have a detailed GPS enabled map that doesnt use data. So it will work anywhere you have GPS.

I paid $2 for it and am satisfied.
