    Does mostly what you want extremely well. I mostly like the constant little tweaks and improvements.

    I tried a few and went on to purchase the full app - had it well over a year now. I use it for hiking and ski touring mainly. It really could be the death of the standalone GPS device!

    This program is awesome for camping, hiking, or hunting. I would suggest an ETA on the stat screen when using the goto function.

    This app shows that tracks were recording and data saved, but i couldn't get my saved tracks to show up on the map.
