Great app!

I’ve been using this app for many years and find it incredibly useful! There are a few little things that have been identified in other reviews, so I’m not going to repeat them. This app is well worth having and using if you frequent the National Parks - especially if you hike into the parks, beyond the parking lots and congestion. I spend a lot of time on remote trails, and some not so remote. There have been several times this app helped me find my way back after a long day on a confusing trail system. I always carry a paper map (as a backup), but there’s nothing like being able to view your location on a downloaded map of the trail system! Btw, I even carry a small solar panel to charge my phone.
As with most apps, you MUST use it and familiarize yourself with it to fully benefit from its many features.

Accidentally renewed subscription, Creator kindly helped with canceling payment

I got this app for my first camping trip, and I signed up for the free trial and forgot to cancel it before it charged me. I had planned to switch to a cheaper option, but forgot! I email the company and Kerry replied. He was very kind, understood my situation, and helped guide me through cancelling my payment. I plan to keep a less costly subscription for this app, just because the Creator was so kind!
As for the usability of the app, I found it very helpful with planning hikes and for navigation. I can tell the Creator put a lot of thought into creating this app. 5 stars!!!

It’s not my repertoire

It’s not my repertoire to give thanks and praise for good service that I expect and deserve. But in the case of Chimani I will make an exception; their service and communication is without fault, almost instantaneous; the information provided in accurate and up to date, the app the most useful of all, nothing comes even close. The yearly membership was given too me as a gift, a gift that keeps giving and giving. If your a US traveler, purchasing this app with all the benefits, services and discounts it provides is a decision you will never regret. Money well spent and wisely. Ralph, NJ, USA
