Top 10 Travel Apps
National Park Maps HD
Gain access to high-resolution trail maps in 15 different national parks across the country, including Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, and Yosemite. Using this app will help you pre-plan your trip, mark out points of interest within the parks, and, best of all, pinpoint your exact location on the map so you can avoid unnecessary detours.
Why we like it: A sense of direction is no longer required to navigate the wilderness. The map downloads for each location provide even deeper zoom levels so you can easily pilot trails, plus the maps work offline for when you’re out in no man’s land. The “distance mapping” feature allows you to estimate a hike’s length so you know when to keep going and when to turn back.
Available on: iPhone, iPod touch, iPad (www.natgeomaps.com/mobile_parkmaps.html)
Flaws: Our only gripe is that we want more maps to more parks.
