new icons and images for iOS 8 and support for new larger iPhones; new Atlas facts button;
Our unique zoomable 'South America' map atlas is available in the English [the Default], French, German, Italian, Spanish, Netherlands (Dutch), Portuguese (Brazilian), and Portuguese (European) languages. It generates custom real-time regional maps plus maps for each country. Separate maps are also included for each of the states of Brazil, and for the very large metropolitan areas. The overall geographical area covered in this app ranges from Columbia in the north-west to Chile and Argentina in the south.
Easily switch between 'Road', 'Hybrid', or 'Satellite' maps, and zoom in (and out) to any detail level desired -- down to the house level! Change to a different area of focus with the drag of a finger and your display is instantly updated. Your Current Location is always highlighted by an animated blue dot, if you choose to allow the app to use your current location.
Tapping a 'Facts' Button, when shown, displays extensive relevant interactive descriptive information from Wikipedia. By following indicated links, more facts and photos are available in a specific areas of interest.
Using a new 'Settings' tab, you can select the GPS Coordinates format to be displayed on all maps, or omit it. Three different popular display formats are supported: Traditional [dddmmss.xx] , Modern [ddd.xxxxx], and Geocaching [dddmm.xxx]. As you drag or zoom on a map display, the GPS coordinates of the center of the display are automatically updated.
Tap the camera icon to quickly capture the created map image to your device's Photo Gallery. [Later you can print or share this image with others via Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, or email using the Apple-provided 'Photo' app.]
