WHAT IS IMG MAP ?
An img map is a vector-based geographic mapping format. It is described by individual points, polylines, polygons, icons and colors, all compressed in a single file with file-extension 'img'. The objects are individually rendered in real-time and because it is vector-based there is no loss of original details when zoom-in or out to any level of details.
FREE MAPS - UPLOAD/DOWNLOAD FROM PC/MAC USING ITUNES
It is a popular and preferred format for mapping enthusiasts and interest groups. Open Street Maps are commonly converted to this format before actually use. Lots of maps are freely available for download from the Internet.

Capable of displaying text on the map in its original encoded language, including Easter Europeans, Western Europeans, Americas and Chinese.

ANIMATED LOCATION SEARCHES
Map locations and street names are searchable by entering partial search text. The map is animated to bring its location to your view with the searched object blinking. You may also locate by entering coordinates.
The app has anti-clutter algorithms for small screen to prevent over crowding of details on the map view. Objects are shown in priority, font and symbols are dynamically sized.
CURSOR TO READ COORDINATES !
The cursor is under your finger and its geographic coordinates is displayed at the status bar. If you have 2 fingers on the screen the cursor is at mid-distance between the fingers. When zooming, the cursor marks the ground-zero so you are guided to your area of interest.
You may save the location of the cursor and the GPS location. You may name it as well. All the UserPOIs are saved in a flat file and you may copy that file to your computer using iTunes. You may also create your UserPOIs on your computer and copy it to iPhone for ImgMaps to use.

Grid lines are curves that mark the divisions of distances. They are curves because Earth is an ellipsoid. The scale of the grid are automatically adjusted. The unit for distance is selectable: kilometers, meters or miles, feeds.
DYNAMIC GPS MARKER !
When you are moving, the marker is a green-arrow and the status bar shows your bearing. Otherwise the marker is a green-target.
