Ratings and Reviews
So glad to see GPS Kit is back.
This was my GoTo app for GPS tracking for years and I am glad to see that it is back Again! Highly recommend this app to anyone looking for a versatile GPS tracker that also offers great options for exporting. Just hope that an update for Track Editor is in the works as that is an essential tool for completing the GPS “Kit”
I have used this app in the states (find my way around the forest when exploring) and Europe (hiking and biking). It is super accurate and easy to use. Base map information (gradient / terrain) is fantastic and details in Europe were amazing (eg a small abandoned Hut high in the Italian alps was marked). Great accuracy on my iPhone 8. Glad it's back and updated.
Best hiking app finally back in action
Was my favorite GPS app and I never really got used to any others in the years the developers abandoned it. Psyched to see it back and working faster than ever. I’d love to see the Track Editor app updated for iOS11 as well!
