5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful February 23, 2013
Verified Purchase
Kindles don't have gps, so this is absolutely the next best thing. This is a map of the whole world, you can zoom in or out as much as you'd like (I zoomed in enough to see the street I live on, but of course it's just a map and not sattelite view). If you have somebody that's good with maps and giving directions from maps, this is a very compact, very easy, map to hand over and say "here, you navigate, I'm driving". I love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars I think I like this app February 4, 2013
By Bruce

I'm still not certain how this app will work without a wi-fi connection, but trying it on airplane mode seemed to enable me to retrieve widespread map information after I downloaded it. Still, I may want to have paper maps when traveling in the middle of nowhere. The lack of much instruction for the app makes it harder to be certain what it can and can't do.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice to have this option, but could be better March 14, 2013
Verified Purchase
This is something I've been looking for, as I need WiFI access for my Kindle Fire to access the Internet. Unless I missed something, you can't seem to get directions with this program...that would be a big plus if you could. I don't need to have GPS type of directions, but to be able to see the route on the map would be nice.

2.0 out of 5 stars NOT offline... July 9, 2013
Verified Purchase
Whipped out my Kindle Fire out camping last weekend to see what the roads were leading out of camp, and there was no map in the Offline Maps. Just a notice saying something about licensing and Bing and can't cache maps for offline use!

1.0 out of 5 stars Did not work offline as it claimed to. July 14, 2013

This app did not work off line as it claimed to in its advertisement. When online, it was slow. Not happy with any map that claims to work off line yet.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't not work May 9, 2013

Have tried to use this several times, always with disappointing results. My advice? Just get a pen and pad. It'll save time and aggravation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful for the Kindle Fire HD August 26, 2013
Verified Purchase
Without a net connection this is very helpful to pull up a map of an area. You have to first view it while connected online then it will show up when you are offline.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Helpful May 22, 2013

Still need a paper map if this is the best available offline. It did no good at all despite multiple tries. Perhaps its better in the city? We went to Yellowstone and the Tetons and it didn't funtion in any helpful way.
