iPhiGéNie is the tool of choice for mapping in France.
There are GPS applications with French maps inside, iPhiGéNie brings you ALL French maps from the National Geographic Institute, with a GPS inside.
Waipoints, POI, tracks recording, creation and editing. Routes creation and editing. Tracks and route following.
Disclaimer: The maps service is based on yearly subscription, through the AppStore auto renew subscription model. The application installation is free and comes with one month free access to the mapping service.
All maps from the French Geoportail are there, from the largest to the most precise. With orthophotos and even cadastral parcels at high resolution zooming. Not only the France territory but also every oversea French territories.
The Vmax module adds track recording, waypoint, GPX files import and export, toponyms search, advanced cache preloading and cleaning. It is available for purchase through IAP.
To allow usage while trekking, biking, riding in place with poor network coverage, and give a smother panning of maps, iPhiGéNie manage a cache where map tiles are kept for one month.
More features are planned in future releases.
Disclaimer: Since release 2.1, the GPS is shut down when the application is sent to background, if there is no track recording going on. If track recording is active the GPS is kept running. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
While there is no English translation of the manual yet, English speaking users are more than welcome to ask any question in the English section of the forum on the support web site. This will help covering most important aspects first.
