The following variants of Bit Map are available to allow users to choose the right balance of features and cost that suits their requirements, as well as allowing the developer to gain some income from the work put into producing the app.


Bit Map Lite‘ on the App Store – FREE

This free ‘Lite’ variant includes all the features that most users require.  It can also be used to ‘try before you buy’ if considering purchasing the ‘Standard’ version.


  • Maximum of 3 online map services and/or offline data stores can be managed in the Layers Library
    • no limit to the number of layers that these services or data stores can contain
    • Tracks data store is excluded from this tally
    • Open Street Maps map service is included in this tally, but it can be deleted and replaced with another service or data store
  • Tracking always uses the ‘WGS 84’ (EPSG:4326) spatial reference system
  • Settings cannot be locked with a password
  • None of the extra features listed under the ‘Pro’ variant are available


This ‘Standard’ variant has none of the limitations listed above for the ‘Lite’ variant and is more suited to power users or for corporate environments.
