    Topo map w Doc Overlays

    Hi, whats everyone using as a topomap app on their phone/tablet? Ideally im looking for 1:50000 maps that can be saved to the phone and if possible i think there are a few out there which let you overlay the Doc open permit hunting areas onto them?

    Cheers

    if you have an iphone download topo50 (costs about $6 for the south island), all maps permanently downloaded, no need for connection, and has DoC hunting area overlay.

    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    Would that work as a GPS though?
