Add custom GPS waypoints in longitude and latitude, UTM or MGRS grid reference. Import GPS waypoints from GPX files. Choose icons for waypoints much like in MapSource. (This app uses the WGS84 datum, NAD27 is available in settings).

Use GPS for hunting a waypoint or geocache, for recording tracks and GPS waypoints on your trip, all the while tracking your quest on topographic maps.

About topo (topographic) maps: Topo maps show terrain through color and contours, and are useful for navigation offroad. Topo maps and GPS can be used for hiking, hunting, kayaking, snowshoeing, & backpacker trails.

OpenStreetMaps and NASA landsat data worldwide.
OpenCyle Maps are topo maps that show terrain worldwide.
USGS Color Aerial photography.

Here are some of the outdoor GPS activities BackCountry Navigator has been used for:
Hiking both on hiking trails and off trail.
Camping, to find the perfect camping site or the way back to camp.
Hunting trips for hunting wild game in rugged areas, including recon for the hunt.
Bait fishing or fly fishing with a buddy.
Search and Rescue (SAR) with GPS.
Kayak and canoe trips on inland lakes and streams or marine, coastal waters.
Backpacker trips: using topo maps of wilderness areas and national forests to navigate on trails with the GPS.
Snow adventures including snowmobiling, skiing (alpine or cross country) and snowshoeing.

This a great addition to the outdoor gear you bought at Cabelas, REI, or another outdoor store. Your android phone could substitute for a Garmin or Magellan outdoor handheld GPS!

    Downloaded for an Assisted Gps class and could do everything in the class. Then downloaded full version.

    Like this app. OS Explorer maps for UK are superb, and can be downloaded to use offline. Have a problem that my security app deletes the maps. Fantastic customer support, helped as much as they could. Will buy full version if I can sort this issue.

    The interface is clumsy and just very ugly. Also it doesn't come with many maps built in. Such as OpenStreetMap.

    Has opened up the public rights of way for exploration while out running. At just over 7 quid, absolute bargain compared to buying OS maps. Never failed me yet and never crashed.

    Little learning curve but once you learn the ropes it's simply the best for android. comparable to gpskit for iOS
