PDF Maps for Windows Phone Beta Available

Avenza Maps for Windows

Update: Avenza Maps for Windows has been released. It's available on the Microsoft Store.


Original post:

You have all been vocal in your support for a Windows Phone version of PDF Maps so we're excited to tell you that the Beta is now available to the public. As a tester, you get to have a direct influence over how PDF Maps looks and feels. Be sure to submit any feedback and issues of your experience with as much detail as possible so that we can make improvements to the app. We highly recommend sending screen shots, crash logs and detailed workflows for any issues you come across.


  • Windows Phone with Windows 8.1 or greater
  • Minimum 512MB RAM

PDF Maps saves maps and data directly on internal storage, so be sure you have enough storage space for importing and storing maps and data.

How to get PDF Maps

If you're interested in joining our beta program to get early access to PDF Maps for Windows Phone, simply send us an email with your name and Microsoft Live account email. You need to have a Microsoft account in order to access the Windows Phone Store to download PDF Maps. If you don't have a Microsoft account, go to Microsoft account setup to create a new one, then send your Microsoft Live email to us so that we can invite you.

Tools and Features

  • Add maps from local storage, URLs and the PDF Maps Store (Access to the Map Store is limited to free content only, paid maps can be seen in the catalog but you will be unable to download them)
  • Edit and delete maps
  • Create map folders
  • View map Details
  • Display your current location on a map (if you are located on it)
  • Follow your current location on a map (not to be confused with creating a GPS track of your movement)
  • Compass mode (not all Windows phones have compasses, check your device specifications of your phone is equipped with one)
  • Coordinate display with multiple format options
  • Adding placemarks and editing placemark title, description and location
  • Map Features List (only Placemarks at this time, measurements and tracks will be added in the future)
  • Measuring distances and areas (currently only in metres)
  • Find coordinates
  • View map extent in Bing Maps

Added in the latest beta release:

  • Import and export KML/KMZ files
  • Import .pdfmaps files
  • Layer visibility can be turned on or off
  • Added My Account to Map Store (limited to free maps only)

We look forward to hearing from you.

surface pro 3/windows 10 bugs

-touch screen is off a bit. when i want to click on a folder, it actually clicks about an inch below, which is usually the folder below. -often i do not get my folder or file names, only iFolder or iPDF Map displayed. if i go back a level then re-enter my main folder, i will then see the folder names. for the maps, i have to click on a map, then go back in the folder in order to see the map names. -any way to keep the app functions displayed? i.e. the back button within the map display? when traversing a variety of maps, it is a pain to have the extra clicks while i'm navigating on the trail. device: surface pro 3 OS: windows 10

re: surface pro 3/windows 10 bugs

Hi Bob, thanks for the feedback. The developers will review your comments and address the bugs listed. Thanks.

So far Beta 3 seems much more stable and usable than the previous versions on my Lumia 521. Will be trying tracking tomorrow.
