  • Fantastic for hiking

    By Chubbly11
    I was skeptical of relying on this outside of cell service, but a skeptic no more! I used to have 5+ year old Garmin Oregon (forgot the model) and the functionality of this app was similar but much more user friendly. I’ve only used it once and relied on it to bushwhack to a high mountain lake about 4 miles off the main trail. It worked great and the battery usage on my iPhone 7 wasn’t too bad. This is a must get for all hikers or hunters
  • The bomb for Hunting.

    By Sly A
    The things has made my Garmin obsolete due to the fact that it has a satellite map. Also lots of of options and works where cellular data doesn’t. This 20$ app has everything I have wanted for hunting.
  • Great App, needs print.

    By TheCombatDoc
    Been using various Topo map apps for years. This is the first one that lets me plot tracks and such directly to the maps. It’s also great that it has so many overlay options including Nat Geo. Well thought out and easy enough to use once you figure out all the icons. Only thing I’d like to see added would be an option to print out your tracks/map sections. That way I could have a backup in case my iPad, phone, etc decided to take a dump. I mean after all, this app is designed for outdoors enthusiasts and sometimes electronics suffer from the less than ideal conditions we subject our gear to.
  • Hiking c to c

    Used in Europe hiking would have been lost with out it
  • Ruined by greed

    By LongEars
    A fine hiking program now very expensive. An expensive membership requires auto renewal to download maps with no realistic way to cancel except just before renewal date. You will see below that the membership instructions about canceling auto renew only 24 hrs before end were misleading. But still expensive and take care or you will end up renewing forever.
  • Too much moolah

    By Roger Race T Bannon
    Downloaded this app a few years ago and liked it a lo. But with now with new update, they push you towards a “membership”. Base app is still free, but to get more than a basic map (very basic), you have to have a membership for $20/yr, premium is $40/yr! Too much moolah!
  • Don’t buy membership

    By GrizNTed
    I purchased the premium membership because it showed that it included the nat geo trail maps which I really wanted for a few trips I was planning in the Adirondack high peaks. I used the link they provide for the premium membership maps and it showed these were included so I paid the $40 for it then went to download them and not only does it not include them but basically doesn’t include any at all useful maps of the area, and that aren’t already free and easy to find online. It’s really disappointing that they lie about the features to get you to buy a non refundable membership that costs 4x as much as all the paper maps for the area that I needed.
  • Beware

    By Respectfully
    Owned this app once before. Yet after paying good money($19.99) the developer decided to create a new app. Twenty dollars wasted. Could this happen to you?? Time will tell.
  • Great app, but could use a couple features

    By Gabe in NH
    I am trying to make this the app that completely replaces my handheld GPS for work ( I am a forester). However, the app currently does not have the following features that I would need to make this a reality: - waypoint averaging for increased waypoint accuracy - ability to set default icons for photos and waypoints - better navigation: larger compass, alert option when near a waypoint you’re navigating to - bulk photo download (must do each individually now) - photo download with waypoint location information attached - quicker way to change titles for photos/waypoints If it is possible to add some or all of these features, I’d gladly pay for a more expensive license, as this would replace a handheld gps that would otherwise cost hundreds of dollars.
  • Snap to Trail no Longer Works

    By therealblackburn
    Generally a solid app, good trail coverage, easy to use, can work with gpx data, but the snap to trail function is no longer working as of v1.6.2 This was a major part of what made this app great.
