    Backcountry Navigator is an amazing app that brings everything your need in a GPS right into your phone. You no longer need to carry 2 separate devices and you can take advantage of the camera right from the app too.

    Is there a way to have offline maps on my phone? I don't want to just download an area that I happen to be in at that time. I want the whole map of the province or state that I happen to be in.

    I am only into this subscription three days and I need to know where I can go to find these 35 waypoints in the application... I was on trial for a few days and it works perfect until I paid for subscription and the App froze up and I lost 35 waypoints....... Well I just went back to the app and it shows my waypoints now so I am wondering about the reliability and integrity of this app now

    It has advertising on the botton which got touch by accident. This caused a program which said I am running slow and sugguested a virus. App is ok, but the aggresive advertising is got to go. Will be checking it with cell provider and likely doing an uninstall. App works fast and seems great. The tag a long advertising is crazy nasty.

    I've used this app for several years, love it. I use it every year for hunting and every time I go hiking to plot and track my route. Well worth buying the full app.
