Relatively recently, Trimble Inc. purchased MyTopos and not only decided to terminate the use of their charts (which we understand – they now have competing apps) but did so without any prior warning to us, dozens of other developers and most importantly to our customers. To add a little insult to injury, they then published a re-direct to their app within our own app. Nice.

That’s that bad news.

The good news is that we should have a full compliment of USGS Topo maps back up and running from another source by early next week. This will happen automatically within the app.

We apologize for the inconvenience – this is not how we would have handled something like this. Moreover, if this put you in any physical jeopardy, we would want to hear about it – we’ll make sure Trimble gets the message.
