The best navigation app I have used

I walked Wainwright’s famous Coast to Coast walk in May 2019. I had all the traditional navigation aids such as a compass and multiple maps. I also had an expensive hand held GPS fully loaded with waypoints. To be honest I still got lost quite a few times in the first week of my walk. I also found the guides and maps a little unclear at times. Then I started to use the Guthook app that I had purchased prior to my walk and forgot I had it on my phone. Well, I found it to a game changer for me. With my phone in flight mode to save battery, I found the Guthook app foolproof and totally reliable. When I was uncertain of my trail I would open the app and see exactly where I was in relation to the trail. In the middle of bogs and un-signposted fields the locator on the app never failed me once and always enabled me to re-find the trail, within a metre. I highly recommend this app and look forward to my next adventure with Guthook!

I used this app on the Bibbulmun Track in Western Australian in 2018. Well worth the money and can’t recommend it enough.

Absolute rubbish!

Bought this app for the Te Araroa Trail in New Zealand.
- water sources on the trail (many missing though)
- comments from other hikers (if they didn't got deleted)
- topo map (limited on the trail)

- limited topo map (you cant just choose a site route you will need to get other maps)
- no possible campsites anymore (got all deleted for some reason
- you cant add water sources, camping or anything!?
- maps are often wrong/outdated
- elevation profile often wrong
- can't add pictures anymore
- way to expensive for what you get
