Common US Public Lands App Problems and Troubleshooting Steps

Android, iOS, or macOS operating system users may encounter a problem where an app will display a black screen for a few seconds before crashing, with or without an error message. However, there are a few methods you can try to fix this issue:

  1. Sometimes, this problem may be caused by a temporary loading issue. To fix this, go to the recent applications menu on your phone, usually accessed by the first left button, and close the app that is experiencing the issue. Then, re-open the app.
  2. If that doesn't work, try doing a hard reboot of your iPhone, iPad, Mac or Android device by simultaneously pressing and holding the "Home" and "Power" buttons for up to 10 seconds, then release them and hold the "Power" button until the screen turns on. After that, try opening the app again.
  3. If none of the above solutions work, another option is to wait for the phone battery to drain and turn off automatically. After that, charge the phone and turn it on and try opening the app again.
  4. If the problem persists, you may need to uninstall and re-install the app. Re-installing the app will restore all settings.
  5. If the app still does not work, you can try installing older versions of the app.

US Public Lands Developer Updates

Version 2022.11 29 November 2022

Updated the maps to reflect the latest PAD US map release.Removed some older notification dialogs..

Version 2021.5 29 May 2021

New to US Public Lands this year - we have greatly improved the ability to place and manage your own custom pins on the map! Now you can add pins by using the search tool, by entering GPS coordinates, or by pressing and holding to drop a pin on the map. And the new pin manager lets you edit and name pins, and select which ones that you want to see displayed. Also new - if you also own our app ‘Coverage?’ which tracks cellular coverage maps, your pin collection is shared automatically between US Public Lands and ‘Coverage?’ - making it easier than ever to scout ahead. The Public Lands database powering the maps has also been updated with all the latest information from the U.S. Geological Survey. REMINDER: Even with the more detailed maps we rolled out in 2019, always remember, there may be private unmapped inholdings within any public lands - so always pay attention to local signage, indications, and information. Do not solely rely on this app for determining if you are on public or private land..

Version 2019.7 08 July 2019

This is the first update to US Public Lands in over four years, and the changes are huge! + Much more detailed & updated maps! (Read below for an explanation) + Full support for all the latest devices and screen sizes, including the iPhone X and iPad Pro. + Support for iPad split-screen multi-tasking. You can now use our app ‘Coverage?’ and US Public Lands to scout out remote boondocking spots and potential cellular coverage simultaneously! The original version of US Public Lands was based on the National Atlas of the United States of America, but this public domain data set was shortly thereafter discontinued and was no longer being updated. The new app has migrated to instead rely on the completely new Protected Area Database (PAD-US 2.0) of the U.S. Geological Survey for the public domain raw map data that we’ve been able to convert to create this interactive overlayable mapping & navigation tool. The PAD-US database is an active and evolving project - which means that we’ll be able to more frequently update this app with future enhancements and improvements. Please note, the USGS PAD-US database contains the “most up-to-date aggregation of Federal lands and waters” available, but this database is still evolving and some locations may not be listed and others may not have precisely accurate boundaries. We’ve in particular noticed some military bases that were charted in the old National Atlas which have not yet been added to the new database, and there are a few other minor omissions too. But overall the detail available in the new maps is VASTLY improved over the old. So while the original data set could be counted on to be no more accurate than 1-square mile of resolution, the data in the new release will vary in resolution across the nation (often much higher, but not always). But even with the more detailed maps: always remember, there may be private unmapped inholdings within any public lands - so always pay attention to local signage, indications, and information. Do not solely rely on this app for determining if you are on public or private land..
