Frequently Asked Questions
- Is the Avenza Maps app free?
Yes. Within the app, there are both free and for-sale digital trail maps available for download.
- Do I need an internet connection to use this app?
Initially, you will need an internet connection (WiFi or cellular service) to download the app and download digital trail maps. Once a map is downloaded, it is stored on the device and is viewable and functional without an internet connection; using GPS, measuring distances, and finding coordinates can be done without service. Certain advanced tools do require an internet connection.
- What Maine AT Maps are available digitally?
All 7 Maine Appalachian Trail maps are currently available both digitally and/or printed.
- Does this digital app map replace the need for a printed map?
No. These digital app maps are not a replacement for printed maps that every trail user should have on hand. Batteries can die, software can have issues, and weather can become problematic, so we certainly suggest you carry printed maps just in case.
- Where Can I buy a printed map?
Printed maps of the AT in Maine are available at the MATC Store
- I am a member of the MATC. Am I eligible for a discount on these digital app maps?
No. Discounts are currently not available on digital app maps.
- Can I view the digital app map on my computer like I might view a PDF file?
No, each digital app map is only viewable within the app.
- Can I print out a copy of this digital app map?
No, the app does not support printing.
- Should I be worried about my device’s battery life?
Battery life depends on many factors, but short trips should minimally affect your device’s battery. For longer trips, you should monitor your battery life more closely. To improve battery life, try adjusting brightness, closing other background apps, and turning off extraneous things like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, notifications and e-mail syncing.
- Who should I contact if I have issues with the App?
Visit the Avenza Support Center to learn more about the app, troubleshoot, or ask questions about issues.
