Export Entire Map Content

Sharing via Mail, Messages, or AirDrop now includes all map pins, including non-route pins, in the exported GPX file. Configure in the app’s Settings.

Max Speed Option

For slower vehicles, you can now set a maximum speed for more accurate travel time estimates and weather forecasts. Max speed is set in the app’s Settings (map’s Info icon > Gear icon).

Also New

  • Routing and navigation improvements under the hood.
  • Ability to pan the map during navigation added.
  • Tap a point on any data chart to briefly show its location and data value on the map.
