WARRINGTON, Pa., March 11, 2014 — Gogal Publishing Company today announced the launch of GPS Topo USA, a newiPhonenavigation app designed specifically for outdoor enthusiasts. GPS Topo USA delivers detailed driving directions and compass navigation capabilities, either online or offline, in one unit.

“This new app, turns any iPhone or iPad into an all-in-one automotive and handheld GPS,” says Mike Gogal, president, Gogal Publishing Company. “We’ve incorporated both orienteering style map-and-compass navigation with GPS automotive navigation in one integrated iOS application.”

GPS Topo USA includes detailed street maps and seamless 7.5 minute topographic maps of the entire United States, including Alaska and Hawaii. The app features a map display that scrolls as users travel, constantly displaying their current location whether driving or hiking in the wilderness. For offline use, both the topographic maps and road maps can be stored locally, eliminating any need for a cellular connection while traveling.

For wilderness navigation, the app features a built-in field compass and an integrated direction-of-travel indicator that guides users to any user-defined waypoint. During travel, the compass continuously displays the user’s current GPS coordinates, altitude, and compass heading, and the indicator points the way and counts down the distance to the selected waypoint. Waypoints can easily be created, annotated, and stored with just a touch of the map or they can be entered manually, which is ideal for storing geocaching destinations.

For automotive navigation, users simply create a new waypoint at their intended destination using the road map. Once the destination is specified, a simple touch of the “GO” button immediately passes that waypoint’s GPS coordinates to the iPhone or iPad’s internal navigation software to provide turn-by-turn driving navigation.

The combined features of highly detailed topographic coverage, map and compass navigation, and capacity for online and offline use make GPS Topo USA ideal for the full gamut of wilderness and outdoor recreational activities.

      While it’s nice to hear about these new items, it would be nicer if the company offering them would show them on their website. I just visited Gogal’s link and there is nothing there to suggest GPS Topo USA even exists.
