iOverlander mobile app

If you’ve read a few of our travel posts, you’ve probably heard us mention the mobile app, iOverlander. 

This post will give you everything you need to know about it, from what it is, how we use is almost every day, how to use it offline and how to integrate it with your GPS software too. 

iOverlander is a tool, by and for overlanders, which enables its users to submit, amend and find information and opinions, primarily about places that are essential for the act of overlanding.

We open the iOverlander app on the iPad and hone in on our current location. The markers indicate others have travelled the same road before us, adding points of interest (POI) to the app.

What points of interest does it support? The main focus of the app is to help travellers find somewhere to sleep, eat, refuel or even help find a local mechanic. 

How much does the app cost? It’s free! How cool is that? The database is growing and maintaining a database has associated costs.

How to use iOverlander While of limited use while travelling, you can get a good feel for what you can expect from the app and how much valuable data it provides.
