2. Allow the app to access your position and any other needed permission.
3. Open the app and close any window requesting sign in or registration.
4. Click on a plus (on Android, this is within an orange circle).
5. Click on “Download or import a map.”
6. Click on “Tap to enter a URL of a map.”
7. Enter one of the following URLs
www.prism.gatech.edu/~wd4/atl1875.pdf
www.prism.gatech.edu/~wd4/gt1875.pdf
www.prism.gatech.edu/~wd4/gtmodern.pdf
8. The app will download and format the map.
9. Click on the newly imported map.
Your GPS position will display as a blue circle if you are currently within the map area.

Yea this is certainly similar to Maprika. I have added William Scaife, the CWPT maps, and several others for battles in Atlanta up to Virginia.

I recommend anyone to try it out.

If anyone would like specific battles let me know and I'll add them.
