Amazing app for national forest lands

I got this specifically to get our local National Forest maps, without knowing how wonderful it really was. I’m so glad I did. I am able to plot pins in favorite little hidden campsites, lay tracks so I can navigate back to unusual places or check how long it takes to get there. I can even add photos to those spots. Buying the national forest map so this way costs about half the price of the printed versions and with the advantage of being interactive. Another major bonus is on my phone it works off satellite and doesn’t depend on cell service. Many national forest areas have no cell service but I can still use the map. Of course it does use up your battery so there’s that to prepare for. I charge it when I’m driving with my cigarette lighter adapter.
I’ve also found many local free maps (or very cheap) such as geological surveys.

Solid App Support

Latest update has performance problems on my iPad. Not sure why, but the latest update has “broken” the map view. By “broken” I mean that when I select a map, the map displays quickly, but you cannot interact (pan/zoom) with the map for 20+ or more seconds. I submitted a support ticket with Avenza. —————- Older: I may have some issues with how Avenza handled the custom maps transition with limiting how many you could have without a pricy subscription. That is a marketing decision, and there are other factors that can be important to consider. Based on my experiences in interacting with their support team, I have found that Avenza has a solid support team and development team behind them. Case in point, iOS 11.3 came out and I discovered shortly after updating, that I could not create placemarks on a map. The app crashed when creating a placemark. This was a real issue for me, as I do this often when planning hikes for parking and such. I reached out to Avenza via their support site and was quickly informed that the the company was aware of the issue and working on a fix. And, they were. Within a day the update was available and the issue that I experienced has been corrected. To me this speaks a lot for a company in how they interact with their customers.

Smart tracking, clunky interface

Often overlooked are the app’s intelligent tracking capabilities that are very customizable and can yield more accurate tracks with less noise than many leading GPS apps. However, you will be hard pressed to reliably export features like tracks to other apps because Avenza’s approach to layers is just all wrong. So bad. Record a track and you should be able to name it right away and have it be findable at top level directory rather than buried in a sea of Avenza’s generic, self-named Layers. Tracks and waypoints should simply transfer to other apps via iPhone’s Open In sharing option, but because your actual track is a so-called Feature within a Layer and never expressly named, you can’t reliably locate it during export. It’s a shame because Avenza isn’t realizing the full potential of what is good about it, and I feel it’s due to misunderstanding its user base and believing all they want are digitized PDFs they can draw on. This is the niche around which the whole ecosystem revolves.
