Setup iPhones/iPads with the Adobe Acrobat Reader App

Please note that I supply the maps, but not the App to use them. To use the Acrobat (pdf) version of my maps on an Android you will need an appropriate App installed.

This page describes using the free Adobe Acrobat Reader App.  There are other Apps that claim to open Acrobat (pdf) format maps and most of them probably work but I have not tested any of them.
