iOverlander is an app built for Overlanders, by Overlanders. It has been tested in dozens of countries and across tens of thousands of miles. Don't believe us? Here are some recent testimonials:
"We have been on the road for over a year and have been using iOverlander all through Central America. It had been immensely helpful in finding the perfect 'away from civilization' spots, especially when arriving in a new area late in the day when we have little daylight hours to explore. The app has been an invaluable tool, allowing us to experience spots our friends have raved about and share our own favorites as well. We also love that it can locate our GPS location even when we don't have phone service. A must have travel app for sure!"

Ratings and Reviews
Text box adjustment / dark mode
Thanks for making a cool app! Just needs a few tweaks to make it great. While this app is without a doubt very useful. Sometimes, spots need very detailed information, especially when I’m the first one discovering it. When I check-in and attempt to type, the box won’t allow typing in dark mode, so it’s just black text in black background. That’s not too big of a deal, as I just change it back and forth between light and dark in the settings. However, you can’t scroll in the text box. So eventually you have no idea what you’re typing out. If that bug is fixed, I’ll adjust the rating.
Edit: The developers have reached out to me regarding a new and improved adjustments to this app, so everyone stay tuned for that. The text box’s ability to scroll when typing has been fixed, which was my primary concern when conducting a check-in. Dark mode isn’t available, but that does not impact the awesome platform these guys have developed, so not a big deal there. I’ll likely edit again when the improvements are released.

Great and Super Helpful
Love the app. We just did a 4 day trip from CA to MI and this app was super helpful with finding things like water, ice, showers, and most importantly areas to sleep. I enjoy how everything is crowd sourced so that the information is constantly evolving.
There are really only two things that I think could be a little better. The app, at least when I was using it can’t natively integrate with apple maps, and also the UI just seems a little bit clunky..hard to describe but that’s just how it felt.
Overall an extremely well thought out app that is super useful and will be getting heavy use on my phone/iPad for years to come.
Bottom Line. This app provides useful info
I’ve been using this app for over a year now. The users of this app have submitted many useful locations including dispersed camping locations, campgrounds, water, dump stations, propane, etc...
I’ve never had this app crash and it provides me with great information into the areas I explore.
If you combine this application with other apps and websites, you will have an exceptional method for route/trip planning. I utilize this app for routing purposes to see where I can camp, pick up water, and dump my tanks.
My only gripe is that when I’m adding a location to the app, it never zeros in on my phones gps location precisely. I have an iPhone 11 Pro so I’m not sure what the deal is with that. I often use google maps to find my exact location and then manually add those coordinates into the app when I’m adding a location such as a campsite or free water spigot.
Lastly, people that gripe about the user interface being outdated or what not. I mean yeah, I suppose it is, but at the end of the day I believe people using this app are backcountry campers. Why are you griping about the apps user interface haha. It provides you with essential information, who cares how pretty it is. Take that energy you’re using for nitpicking an app and apply it towards cleaning the trash from the next campsite you’re at and leaving it better than the way you found it.
Good app. Thanks for developing it.
