  • Forest Service Maps

    This is a really good map program. It downloads both USGS and US Forest Service maps. Downloaded maps are absolutely necessary when outside of cell coverage. Having topo maps with labels that match US Forest Service road numbers and trail markers makes navigation a lot more certain.
  • Best hiking gps app

    I've tried a few others and this app seems to use less battery power, the maps are official usgs quadrangle, which means some trails aren't quite accurate due to trail maintenance I'd guess. Best part: NO SUBSCRIPTION FEE!
  • Great, until a bug

    I loved this ap. Now the “my location” no longer shows my location. Please fix!
  • Lacking organization

    This app is amazing works great while hunting in areas with no service what so ever. The only thing I see that would make this app better would be a way to store maps and waypoints in specific folders for the different areas that may be downloaded. Would be 5 stars otherwise.
  • Wonderful GPS mapping App

    i Hike GPS just gets better and better. So many free map sources, the ability to really zoom in on the topo maps, and all the extras make this a great deal. My current favorite feature is being able to pull up photos I have taken on my iPhone and iPad I have taken before and then navigating to those photo locations. Great for finding outcrops and fossil locations in the field. Too bad I can only give it 5 stars!
  • Fantastic app-watch support please

    I have used it for years and love it. Watch support would be great. Very high quality topo maps for no charge. Great support from the developer both for the app and for the topos he hosts on his server. Make sure your compass is calibrated before using the app. If your compass can't calibrate check Settings/privacy/location services/system services/

    This is an incredible app. It is easy to use, full of useful features, and comes with outstanding technical support from the author, Mr. Larry James. This app can be used in place of a gps device. Great product!
  • Great GPS/mapping/distance app

    I use this for 3 primary purposes: 1. When hiking I can see where I am and navigate to where I want to be. 2. When running it tells me how far I have gone. 3. When flying wildfire helicopter recon missions I can map perimeters and mark areas of concern. Works great with no observed glitches.

    Horrible app! I want my money back!!!! Maps in my area are well over 25 years old and not accurate!!! I would not recommend this to anyone. When I contacted the developer he said it didn't matter as terrain didn't change that much overtime. He must be in prison where there is very little change over time in terrain, because terrain where I live is constantly on the move.You couldn't find your way out of a one door broom closet with this!!!!!
  • Great hiking app!

    Really great application for hiking. I've used in remote High Sierra to Joshua Tree, always had accurate GPS readings. Also good for elevation tracking and waypoint markers. Compass integration also super helpful. All topo map downloads are free after buying the app and are automatically stitched together to create larger map areas. I always bring a paper map, but generally this is what look at most while on the trail.
