Create beautiful maps: Maps Pro allows you to change the style of your map, choosing from over 20 different styles and providers including Nokia, ESRI, MapBox, Stamen, OpenStreetMap ( OSM ) and Bing Maps. Create custom maps by adding overlays such as Google Traffic, hiking routes (including USGS topo maps) or truck restrictions.

Maps Pro is the best replacement for Microsoft Street and Trips, now discontinued by Microsoft.
Maps Pro is used by thousands of users all over the world: hiking in Germany, preparing rally tracks in Sweden, visualizing real estate projects in South Africa, planning camping trips in the UK, trekking in Mongolia, and driving around the USA in a RV are just a few examples of how Maps Pro has been used.
Version 89 Changed the style of the on-screen informations (position, altitude, speed, etc.) so that it doesn't hide some parts of the map A blue marker with options (Directions, Street View, etc.) should appear on the map when clicking/tapping the map. For some tablet users, tapping the map wouldn't bring up the marker. Maps Pro will now drop the marker after a long press Route duration is now shown when using the OpenStreetMap router New overlay panel!. When you open an overlay (KML/GPX/GeoJSON), a panel will open on the right of the screen. It can also be opened by clicking the button in the bottom-right corner. A list shows every item in the overlay. Click the list to either zoom or get direction to that point Routing calculation progress is now more obvious with bigger dots at the top of the screen
Version 88 Added two buttons in the lower right corner of the map. First one will recenter the map and follow your position (just drag the map to make it stop following your position). The second one will open the menu, so that it is easier to access while driving Google Traffic overlay has been replaced by the Bing Traffic overlay because Google Traffic was too unstable If you selected OpenStreetMap as a data source, directions will also be calculated by OpenStreetMap and not by Google Maps Distances are now always displayed in miles and never in yards
