Lots of potential

This app has a ton of potential! I am able to use maps of Forest Service roads and trails while online and even create PDFs. The problem is if you want to use it offline.

Every time I try to download a Forest for online use, I can only see the boundaries with little detail of use. If you could download all of the road and trails for offline use, the app would be 5 stars easily.

A great application for Overlanding

Overall this Application is getting better and better with each new update. I’ve been using it for several years now in the mountains of Virginia and West Virginia with great success. I very much appreciate the forest service offering the free application and also keeping information such as weather warnings and fire up-to-date. We also camp quite a bit on the western states including California, Oregon and Washington and it is always hopeful to see where the fires are.
As far as off-line capability goes its latest update is quite useful in addition to being able to save maps for completely off-line use. This is one of the better free apps out there and I would highly recommend to all my overlanding, off grid or 4x4 friends.
