WHAT OTHERS SAY
“This app saved my life! * * * * *
This app was downloaded, while lost in the Kaimai Ranges. GPS quickly located position, app quickly (ish) downloaded the relevant NZ topo map. From there easily identified position on the map. Outcome, life saved. And my mates who by this stage was getting all girly about it all. Best app ever!!!” - Jk9624 on the UK App Store
No device requires a cellular data plan to use iHikeGPS NZ.
Recommended: the iPhone 4S or later, & the 4th or later generation iPads with WiFi+Cellular support full navigation.
Usable: the iPad 2 & 3rd generation iPad with WiFi+Cellular support full navigation except for map stitching.
The WiFi-only iPad 2 & later, and the iPod touch (5th gen) & later require an iOS-compatible external GPS receiver to show your location in the wilderness and to record tracks. View maps using the iOS device alone.
Continued Use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
Your dream of tramping adventures reaches new heights with iHike GPS NZ!
