Thx, guys.

I did a bit of poking around with it. I found n earlier version that was for Android and a version for Windows, but nothing for IOS. I tried the Windows version just to get feel for how Avenza works. It looked like I could downlload a lots of maps for my area (cycling trails etc). Some were free, some not. I did find 1 topo but looking around the map for other topo maps was futile. I tried a name search as well, no luck.

Wotrock, I'm getting both the Toporama and the CanTopo top maps in the Avenza search page... the CanTopo version should be the higher quality map. Plus a lot bike trail maps and others like you described. This is on the search page link from the map store page by clicking "online".... this is what appeared after typing in "wasaga", then clicking on the Ontario location that pops up.

News... it turns out that top maps will download and can be stored on a PC, but only with Windows 10... my earlier comment that maps can't be stored applies to mobile devices, it seems that the maps can't be stored on a SD card inside a phone, only on a phone's internal storage so if the battery goes dead or is taken out, the maps might disappear (I haven't done this to check).

Here's the PC viewer page along with additional info links, to view and download Avenza maps on a desktop or tablet. Once you have the viewer, it should be listed in programs on your PC, opening it should provide a look at the top maps that were downloaded and stored. Hope it works, finding the link to the PC viewer at the Avenza website wasn't all that apparent. And it's no longer supported it seems, so might be buggy or not available later on.

I whipped off an e-mail to Avenza ad got this prompt response---It looks like I am SOL!

**********************************************************************************

"Unfortunately, the newest version of the application is only supported on devices running iOS 11 or higher. The version of the application that Apple makes available in the App Store will not be supported on any device running iOS 10 or lower. It is entirely up to Apple what versions of the app they choose to make available, but I would like to direct you to this article on how to download an older version of the app that cannot run iOS 11, here.

The method in the article is only if you previously downloaded the app on that specific device or with your specific Apple ID as it requires you to access the older version of the app from your previously “Purchased” apps tab. Unfortunately, there is no other way that I know of to get access to an older version of the app for iOS so you may be unable to use it on your particular device. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

All the best,
