App Description

✪ Honorable mention for Best Travel App and Best Navigation App in the 2011 Best App Ever Awards! ✪ ➤ Effortlessly access and edit your custom Google My Maps on a beautifully crafted vintage interface, with offline maps that work even without Internet access.


Plan trips, and see all your marked places, routes and notes on a map while you travel, even without Internet access. Record where your hotel is, where bus stops are, or save restaurant recommendations from a friend.

The Cartographer works with Google My Maps: Tools that allow users to customize Google Maps with markers. Now you can do all your travel or errand planning on the desktop with Google My Maps, then sync your maps with the iPhone.

Share entire maps or individual markers with fellow travelers or friends and family back home.

Offline maps, with bulk downloading (using OpenStreetMap), let you avoid roaming charges and go places your mobile network doesn’t.

Not just for travellers! Make maps for marathons, band tour schedules, house hunting, or job hunting.
