At one time everyone was thrilled to be able to buy a Garmin GPS and an AgMap SD card and go to work … and it is still the best way to guarantee that everything will work out … BUT … we live and die with a smartphone in our hands these days so a smartphone version was inevitable.
The reason that we hesitated in building for the cellular market was the fact that cellular service was so poor in the rural areas that the majority of users would expect to be able to use the app … then, Google Maps started to enable the ability to grab areas of the map and take them offline. This was what we were waiting for … and recently it’s even better as the app has a pretty good idea that the route has been calculated for you has poor coverage and it actually asks you if you want to download the map for that route.
So … late last week we have AgMap both in the iTunes app store and the Google Play app store … free for a seven day test drive and a yearly subscription after that.
What do you get that Google Maps doesn’t already do for free?
