Needs an update

I’ve use this app for for many years and it’s been really helpful. But it’s concerning that it hasn’t been updated in two years. Also, significant sections of the Lake Tahoe rim Trail in California and Nevada are missing. This is a popular trail and should be shown on the Topo maps!

Needs improvement

I use this as a tracker when in the field to follow my tracks and mark important areas. However I am unable to share the tracks or way points as a group or individual with anyone. They are unable to open it and I can’t even search my waypoints. It would be nice to have an easier way to search the waypoints and send them as well. Also in the how to, or help or even trying to upgrade nothing works. So sad I really love this app. Now I am trying to find another app so I can put in all of my waypoints one by one. Also FYI their web page doesn’t work for anything. So sad

Best navigation app

I am a commercial blue crabber and licensed tow boat captain and I use this app to keep track of 200 crab pots on the Gulf of Mexico and I also use it to locate vessels needing towing assistance. Even when I’m 30 miles offshore with no cell phone service, the offline maps never fail to guide me to my destination. So simple to use and the best tool I’ve ever seen on a cell phone
