5 Stars This is the best Hiking App

This is the best hiking app. Easy to use, great tech support, uses very little battery energy. Easy to plan a route or just to check where your at. Very accurate for trails, it uses the path that others have hiked on when there are multiple paths/trails or old trails on maps. I have used this for 2 years in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.

Perfect Overlanding Map

Recent updates & availability of the USFS MVUM maps have made this my go to map. Activate the Natural Atlas map along with the USFS MVUM maps and together you have a map that no other application or website can touch. Awesome!

Developer Response ,

Good to hear! Try adding the NeoTreks slope map as an overlay to your Natural Atlas base map in blend mode (multiply), about 30% transparency. Add the hill shading the same way and that really makes your app shine!

I paid the extra for the better Dif version, much improved, worth it! I would have given 5 stars, but it won’t work on my iPad……that’s a big negative….if you can’t tke it with you, then that’s a disadvantage. It’s my fault that I didn’t pay closer attention to what it was rated to work on. 5/11/19 C. UPDATE 5/13/19- Developer contacted me and explained how to use the app on iPad.
Thanks! Now I’ll know where I am when I’m lost……. :)

Developer Response ,
