Hiking season in France starts with IGN offline maps in Locus

As you may have known, so far, maps of the well-known French publisher IGN or, more precisely, of their web version Géoportail have been a part of Locus online map portfolio for a few years. You can browse French countryside on topographic and aerial maps. IGN maps can be purchased from Locus Store:

Let’s go offline!

Since Locus Map 3.24.2 these maps are available also OFFLINE in two subscription programs – monthly and annual.

IGN is available in two subscriptions

Maps are displayed online and you can cache them (store in temporary memory) or download them for full offline use – you can define your own map crop of the available covered area and zooms.

IGN topographic map

IGN topo maps are detailed and accurate with clearly rendered structure. Maps contain complete tourist content including marked hiking and cycling trails and are available in several zooms down to 1:25.000.

    When you take in consideration the fact that most of these maps have not been updated in the past ten yeats or mlre, this is NOT a good deal.
    Way too expensive...

      Hi, do you have any proof of your statement? We do not so we are happy to have IGN maps in our offline portfolio. And 1299 LoCoins/year? Its some €15... For a whole France in offline mode quite a bargain.

      I don't agree.
      IGN is probably the best map source in France.
      I also have other map sources in locus but always go back to IGN. So price is OK.
      Thanks locus for the really good work with the app.

      For the hiker and mountain bike, I certify that on the areas I frequent, many paths appearing on Ign cards have disappeared and new ones do not appear. Ign's maps date back at least 10 years ago. Google alone sticks to reality. In France at least
