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.

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

Map interface

My favorite part of the original app was the way I could sort categories on a map. I could see what is in the area while I was traveling. It would also change the graphic colors on parks I have visited on the maps. This version requires me to know the name of a park before I look up the information. I hate this new version. I have been to 50 national Parks & they only appear on a list. Even worse the update no longer recognizes I paid for the guides.

Developer Response ,

I wanted to make sure you saw the latest update which allows for previously visited parks to be displayed on the map? The map is also back on the Home screen, as well as screen. And we've introduced "National Park mode" to remove all the other park content. Please email if you have any questions.
