Settings (Android)

Last Updated: May 15, 2017 11:26AM EDT

You can access and define settings for the app here. While some settings vary and some are completely optional, they're simple to use and may help you customize some of the features in the app. The main sections for Settings are as follows:

  • Help
  • General Settings
  • Enter Pro Account Details"
  • Upgrade to Pro*
*When a subscription is applied, these will be replaced with Account Details


This section provides links to the online help, how to contact Avenza Support, media and legal links, as well as allow you to re-download the Getting Started map (if it's been deleted).

General Settings
This will be the main section for customizing how certain features within the app work, as well as accessing Map Store and Debug settings.  For more information regarding the settings available here, please see our section on General Settings.

Enter Pro Account Details
If you have a subscription ID for an Unlimited or Pro account, this is where you can enter it and register your device.  By tapping on this, a second dialog will open where you will enter your username (this refers to the subscription code you received), password (unless your organization has implemented a password, leave this blank), name, email (does not have to match your Map Store email), and organization.  For in-app subscriptions, you will be sent an email that has the subscription ID attached to it, please enter it here.

Upgrade to Pro
If you have not purchased a subscription (for either the Unlimited Import, or Pro), but would like to, you can tap 'Upgrade to Pro' in order to initiate the purchase process.  You will be presented with two options to purchase: 1) Unlock Map Import - which provides the user access to unlimited custom (non-map store) map imports, or 2) Pro subscription - which provides the user unlimited custom imports, Shapefile support, as well as the appropriate licensing required for commercial use (Pro licensing is required for any work/organization related use of the app and is on a per device basis). For more details on the Subscriptions available, please see our Subscriptions page.

Account Details (only visible when a subscription is active on the device)
Once a subscription is activated on the device, the Enter Subscription ID, and Upgrade to Pro options will be removed, and replaced with Account Details.  This allows you to view the details of your subscription including: type of subscription, name and email the subscription is registered to, as well as the expiration/renewal date of the subscription.
