Very useful and love the fitness bonus

Getting back into hiking and this app has been very useful for navigation, tracking my route, planning routes, and health syncing for my fitness regiment. The health sync is very important to me, and this has it. I would like to see easier controls for quickly navigating to the trail head through Apple maps. I also feel the UI could be a bit refined on iPhone for quick button mashing while cruising in the backcountry. I’ve downloaded a bunch of routes and am planning more hikes when I’m done with this review. Please keep improving the app and I’ll keep exploring with it.

So powerful and accurate... and Free!

I love this app! one my favorites; especially the fact that when off-line in the middle of the wilderness it has never let me down. I just turn it on put my phone in airplane mode turn off the screen throw in my backpack and forget about it; if I see a cabin/refuge that I want to document for a future hike, I take out ny phone, document on the fly. So easy. Most of all I'm impressed by how little battery it consumes. I use this app for mountain hikes, exploring cities and documenting my rides/runs (and exploring faster commute times!). With the free maps and ability to export it to my Dropbox and open it on Google Earth flawlessly: powerful and headache-free! It's ability to Simply document off-trail paths and analyze/share them with friends, is great! Moreover there are many unused capabilities of the app I see myself using in the future: other items like the buddy beacon, Skyline, and the ability to share my routes and peruse those of others are aspects to VR I'm excited exist and I see myself using more in the future.

Gaborone walker

I’ve been trying this app out in order to track the areas I walk around Gaborone Botswana. So far I am pleased with it. I’ve been able to record trails that I walk in the woods, add interest points, and add photos of interesting things to each path. It also records the time and distance of each trail. I hope to go beyond the trails I already know and walk in new places without getting lost! I feel confident that this app will help me to achieve this. My only concern is that if I accidentally swipe the app up while walking, I will loose the maps that were loaded while at home with WiFi. I do not have the ability to reload through my phone service.
