Everything at your fingertips. Yes a bit of a learning curve but not steep, just try it first in your town or other familiar place. As you play with it you’ll appreciate the usability choices. Doesn’t crash, imports everything you give it. Great job.

Thanks for your feedback.

So so so hard to use!!!

I bought this because California Trail Maps has a new format and included a link to this app to use it.

Holy cow, I can't figure it out. Got the maps downloaded, Installed... But if I need to read the docs on how to search or center on my location, it's an INSTANT FAIL. Much less routing,

I can't believe I just wasted $5 on this.

I'm sure I'll get around to reading the instructions, until then, Guru Maps is my ongoing favorite.
