Iron Range OHV Recreation Area Map

Android Locus application


The Iron Range OHV Recreation Area map is an off-line (no cellular connection required) mapset designed for use on Android phones and other devices with GPS capability. Features of the mapset include:

- Detailed trail information (including names and classifications)
- Area and POI information
- Map detail of Gilbert and the surrounding area


The Iron Range OHVRA mapset should work on any device running an application that is compatible with the MBTile format. It has been successfully tested with the following device/software combinations:

- The free Locus mapping application for Android phones and devices.
- The free MapBox mapping application for the Apple iPad.
- (still looking for a compatible application for the Apple Iphone)


This file contains the mapset in MBTiles format. Installation instructions can be found in this README document.

NOTE: An older version of the mapset, limited to Garmin GPS devices, can be found here.


Any feedback (comments, corrections, questions, etc.) is welcome and encouraged. I primarily make these maps for my own use and as a learning experience but it is good to hear when others find them useful. Please direct all feedback to the email address shown at the top of this page.
