Great App but Measure Feature Not Working

This app is great and I recommend it to all my customers doing ebike tours. It wound be nice if the measure feature would work again.

Great Trail. Poor App

Can’t find parking within an hours drive even when trail passes through towns with cars and parking.
No satellite image or any map layers.
Missing new trail sections, so enjoy walking more roads.
Virtually none of the official access points are shown on the app.
Can’t find “Ontario” without going to Google. I don’t need a map app to search Google.
No navigation functionality unless it is hidden in tracker which you MUST allow to track you when NOT using the app.
I don’t see user photos or trips, just a line where the trail is. An app for a green line...huh?
A shell of an app.
