Try Mud Maps directly, you will need to purchase maps of course.

You could also try the HEMA app.

I have HEMA and OziExplorer on my Android Tablet and it works perfectly, in fact better than expected, again the application is free but you purchase the Maps you need from HEMA.

Yes some people get confused between maps and apps. MudMap is an app (like OziExplorer etc.). What maps you choose to use with the app you have is generally up to you. I don't know if any actual maps come with any of the Mud Map apps but here is a link to a converter that allows you to convert some image formats to the MM format required by MudMap..which may save repurchasing same map in correct format if you already happen to have it.

Lots of people on another forum have bought MM and then had to buy MM 2 because upgrades weren't carried over.
I don't know a lot about it but there is a many users very angry and unhappy with MM.
Be careful what you end up purchasing.

I bought the original Mud Maps App because it said it came complete with 25k topo maps for the whole of Australia. The maps were 25k and they had topo lines but they were basically street maps that were missing many, many off road fire trails that you would have assumed were on any decent 25k map. If I could sell my copy I would. I have Ozi on Android and Memory Map on ipad and Android with Hema maps for both. I can't remember the last time I used Ozi because Memory Map suits me fine. The funny thing is, I didn't like Memory Map when I first got it as a long time Ozi user.

If you use Mudmap you need to carefully read the disclaimer.

The detailed maps are not google, they are based on Open Street Map which is a community contribution map in the same way as Wikipedia is a community contribution encyclopaedia.

Open Street Map has many significant fatal errors in many parts of the country that are remote and less travelled. Great for busy areas. For example it has in the order of 50 or more major errors in one small part of the high country. It is mostly un-surveyed and guess work from people at home on their computer.

OSM has a disclaimer that it should not be used in critical situations right on the front page. Pity Mudmap doesn't repeat that warning up front, though it is hidden in their terms of use.

I would get proper surveyed maps like Hemo, topo 250k, Vicmaps etc, Westprint, etc on Oziexplorer, Memory Map etc if I wanted a reliable map.

To top it off OSM is free unless you use it through Mudmaps.
