Description

Do you feel online Google Maps is too slow showing you the map? Do you want an easy way to mark and remember where you are? Do you need a list of streets where you are? You don’t want to carry around a big unwieldy paper map? Tired of having the paper map blown to pieces by the wind every time you try to figure out where you are and where you need to go?

The mobile streetmaps are for you! All the map data is loaded on your iPhone or iPad before you leave your home, so can you be on the streets, offline, and still know everything about the area you are in, and locate yourself or any street in the city. You don’t need any network connection at all once the application is installed on your iPhone or iPad – no WiFi, no 3G, no GPRS!

This is a complete street level map for your iPhone or iPad. The entire map is stored on your device, so it works where you have no access to the Internet - it works where Google Maps is inaccessible. This prevents expensive data roaming charges by loading all the map data to your device before you leave home. You can turn off all network functions and still be able to find your way around. Lets you find all streets, and many useful locations such as ATM's, parkings, museums, and many others. Remembers where you've been so you can find that parking spot where you left your rental car, or that great restaurant. Allows you to mark interesting locations to visit in advance. To make sure your phone doesn't use any expensive data on your trip, go to Settings, then General, tap on Network, and slide the Data Roaming to "off".

[From Wikipedia:]

The Way of St James has existed for over a thousand years. It was one of the most important Christian pilgrimages during medieval times, and a pilgrimage route on which a plenary indulgence could be earned;[1] other major pilgrimage routes include the Via Francigena to Rome and the pilgrimage to Jerusalem.

Legend holds that St. James’s remains were carried by boat from Jerusalem to northern Spain where he was buried on the site of what is now the city of Santiago de Compostela. There are some, however, who claim that the bodily remains at Santiago belong to Priscillian, the fourth-century Galician leader of an ascetic Christian sect, Priscillianism, who was one of the first Christian heretics to be executed.

The Way can take one of any number of pilgrimage routes to Santiago de Compostela. Traditionally, as with most pilgrimages, the Way of Saint James began at one’s home and ended at the pilgrimage site. However a few of the routes are considered main ones. During the Middle Ages, the route was highly traveled. However, the Black Plague, the Protestant Reformation and political unrest in 16th-century Europe led to its decline. By the 1980s, only a few pilgrims arrived in Santiago annually. Since then however the route has attracted a growing number of modern-day pilgrims from around the globe. The route was declared the first European Cultural Route by the Council of Europe in October 1987; it was also named one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites.

  • Hint to developer

    by Show The Way

    This product is unique among your established map apps, in that users of the "Way of St. James" app are following a defined hiking trail over several hundred kilometers of sometimes confusingly marked roads and trails. It would me immensely helpful to your customers if you marked the path clearly and consistently across the entire distance. There are places where there seems to be a marked path (in dotted red), but at times it branches unexpectedly and often disappears completely. It is also difficult to navigate without a wider zoom perspective. Remember, users of this map are not so much looking for a city map (though that part helps), as much as they are walking BETWEEN cities, and need better markings of the footpath to follow. Hope this helps.
