Once you have installed a map it can be viewed without any network connection. So download your
maps before you leave home, and then don't worry about needing cellular or WiFi coverage.
Map downloads are free - all you pay is the initial price of the app.
For a complete walk-through of all the app's features, see the
Quick Start page and the User Guide.

Topo Maps is now available from Apple™'s App Store in the
Navigation category for only $7.99.
There is a separate
app for the iPad.
Please also have a look at another of my iPhone apps, Panoramascope : Augmented Reality, which computes the
view visible from almost anywhere on earth, and can superimpose it on the iPhone's camera image
so that you can identify the peaks that you're looking at.
