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.

OpenStreetMaps and NASA landsat data worldwide.

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.

    Is there am ETA feature, or are there plans to add one? As it is, the app is great: stable, accurate, and versatile. I use it for tracking targets in my aerial photography and it is literally indispensable.

    Downloaded the trial app, worked so well I upgraded before the trial ran out! Using Os explorer maps, I've been begging for an app like this for ages.

    Was so impressed with this app I upgraded from the 30 free trial after 20 days. Especially love it's off line capabilities and the ability to easily add waypoints.

    Testing. Looks great. Can I import way points? I have a Gps that can connect to a pc and download way points using "standards".
