Almost Perfect App

I am setting things up and this seems like a great app, and I’m excited to test it offline in the woods this weekend. I think this could be the gps app I’ve been looking for. I would like to suggest 3 things though.

- Option to download a satellite view map. It would help so much for hunting! Since where I hunt and live is mostly flat land, we look for trails and tree lines for points of reference and you can’t see that from any of the other maps that can be downloaded for offline use.
- Option to add notes to a waypoint, so I can put a longer paragraph description of why it is a point of interest to me. It’s hard to put everything about the waypoint you want to remember in a small name.
- Sharing... I’m not going to have email access in the middle of nowhere. Sharing via airdrop or Bluetooth would be impressive.

Please email our team and we would be happy to elaborate on some of the suggestions you made specifically why we are able to download certain map types and not others, and how as an end user you can download custom map tiles. We can also go over how to Add notes to a waypoint and elaborate on sharing techniques.

The best!

Have been using app for years, including loading in the tract to do the Camino De Santiago. It has always worked splendidly! Recently, getting ready for an extended trip to South/Central America for curiosity sake tried almost every other popular trail app out there and this on is still the best. On the one trek in particular that I compared the others to (Quilotoa circuit, if you want to check yourself), one of the high price subscription apps was totally inadequate(even tried a subscription, not believing the map could be so poor) the other subscription app that I checked, as well as several free or low cost apps did not show near the detail as the motion-x maps. Plus it is easy to use. Keep up the good work, still the best out there!!!

Deceived by the reviews!

The most terrible, confusing GPS app I have ever worked with! Yes, I am not that smart, neither that much advanced in working with that kind of stuff, but you don’t have to be a NASA scientist in order to use a GPS either! Straight to the point, what I needed was a simple replacement of a regular GPS device, which will work offline. The crazy thing with that app was the way it downloads maps. Instead of doing it by simply giving me the option of choosing the name of a state from a list, I had to choose and put a whole area in circle and then push download. That’s absolutely ridiculous and confusing since you don’t have the slightest idea of what is downloaded. Plus, let say you want the map of Main downloaded, by putting Main in the circle, you also have to place some of the Canada’s area which I don’t care for! I rather stay stuck with Sygic! Three bucks are not a big deal, the problem is when something is absolutely not user friendly and makes you feel totally dumb!
