Real Men Use Maps



And evidently so do real women.  This new app, MAPLETS, boasts map downloads in the millions.  
Do you use Google Maps in your travels?  MAPLETS, compliments Google Maps with 10,000 offline maps in the US and worldwide including Yosemite, New York Subway, London Tube, Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, State Parks, and more! 

 DESCRIPTION 



This is great for RVers because you can download maps when you have online access at your campsite so that when you are traveling and online access is not guaranteed, the maps can be at your fingertips.

There is an initial cost of $2.99 to download the app.  Then you can download and store maps of national parks, state parks, metro, subway, bike maps, ski resorts, college campuses, zoos, theme parks and more! Never a charge for any map downloads.

It was surprising to see that even campgrounds had their site maps in there.  One of the reviewers raved that they called to get a map they wanted into the app and within a week it was there.  (Think I'll call and submit Hidden Valley RV Parks site maps.) You can see a list of all available maps at http://www.mobilemaplets.com/places. Here are some examples: 





NATIONAL and STATE PARKS:


1000+ National and State Parks, including:
Yosemite National Park
Yellowstone National Park
Grand Canyon National Park
... in fact, ALL the US National Parks, National Monuments, National Seashores are available

METRO and TRANSIT MAPS:
