    Nice, what's the difference? I was checking out your website for info in the IAP in the paid version. Maybe I missed the difference? Is it pay to add on topo in addition to the paid, or is it included?

    The paid version has Wikipedia info linked to the POIs, also, it has unlimited downloads (7 downloads available in the free version). Hillshade is a plugin, it has to be purchased separately.
