  • Pretty sad the features it's missing

    Edited: - Using lat lon with this is pretty cumbersome. You must search in exact format such as loc:n34.285781, w117.632421 Then if you pan at all you lose the exact spot so have to immediately save it as a waypoint. Would be nice to just put in normal decimal coordinates that designate hemispheric direction with positive or negative numbers and drops a temp pin. Any deviation from this format, including a capital letter cause it to search it as a street address. The 3D topo is great and better than other apps except google earth but lacks an intuitive UX, doesn't have capability to switch to a satellite view and is difficult to search by coordinates in a functional manner. Sounds like it is being actively developed and some of the problems are being addressed and are also not too hard to fix so look fw to future releases.
  • (Update) Impressed - needs better search though.

    Updated review: I have been using this app on and off for the past few years. The developers have clearly been working hard the whole time. Unlike many tracking and routing apps that seem to be released and abandoned, this app has been consistently cared for. The original review's issues have been addressed mostly as well. Thanks for this awesome app guys! •————————————• Original review: This is a very nicely done app. The routing and map saving functions are really cool. The topography and POIs are a bit lacking. Staring at a trail on the map, I searched for the name and it didn't show in results. I use my old neotreks app to find trails and then this to plot and track the hike. Stuff like shelters and pay stations would be amazing. Please? Keep it up though guys :)
  • Nice off-road mapping app

    I like the several different map layers available. I would prefer a layer that combines the features of Topo Map 2 and 3, since 3 has a lot of labeled Forest Service routes, but is low contrast. A slightly higher contrast Topo Map (like ViewRanger) would be nice too. The 3d feature is nice for visualizing trail altitude profile. The track recording features are very nice and the stats for a track are nice as well. The UI is the best I've seen on this type of mapping app. Clean, intuitive after minimal practice, and not at all clunky. Three things that leave me wanting: The biggest thing I would like to see from this app is the ability to store multiple map types for a given region. That way I could quickly switch from Topo 2 to USGS in the backcountry. The next is satellite imagery. Finally, the ability to use different coordinate systems like National Grid and MGRS, with the option to display at the top right under the elevation. Bonus: the ability to import and export GPS tracks.
  • What a hiking app should be

    I've tried many different apps to assist me while hiking. This one is reliable and does everything that I need it to do - and more.
  • Best navigation app

    I have used several other apps and this is definitely one of the best. 3D graphics are great and map details are very good. I used it for mountain biking and it's all I could ask for.
  • Fantastic, apple quality

    This app is incredible. It's what I've been looking for since the first iPhone came out. Finally someone has executed the backcountry gps app to near perfection. Unlike other apps that have come before, this doesn't feel janky and half baked. Even if it didn't have 3D mode it would still be way better than others. The features are well thought out, the UX is great and the product is polished and high quality. The 3D mode is the icing on the cake and makes navigation even that much easier than using maps with just contour lines. Offline map support works great and you can even choose between different map sources, e.g usgs or open street view. The app is built with energy conservation in mind and doesn't use much power even whilst tracking your route. It includes great stats too such as an elevation graph, speed, vert covered, etc. As an example of how well thought out the app is, you can choose between displaying altitude based on the terrain map that's more accurate or altitude from the gps that's less accurate but useful if you're flying. I can't stop raving about how much I love this app. As a climber, backcountry skier and paraglider pilot this just became one of the best pieces of 'gear' I own, for $5 bucks it's an absolute bargain.
  • Great help on hikes

    Saved me from getting lost a few times already. I almost never write reviews but I made exception for this excellent app. Far cheaper and better than many alternative apps. Only complaint, as many other has noted, is how the app always takes you back to your current location when you click to download so you have to scroll all the way to find the area you were looking at. This is tricky sometimes because you might have been looking at the location of a particular landmark not easy to find on the map in the first place.
  • Fantastic

    I love the integration with both USGS topo maps ("quads") as well as OpenStreetMap. This has really helped me find my way on local trails, some of which are quite new. I just wish they had a dedicated iPad version and apple watch support too. But still a five star app.
  • Not so Awesome

    This used to be a great app. It no longer allows satellite view maps and is no longer useful for my uses. Too bad it was awesome once.
  • My first GPS tracking app
