    I've taken this app hiking and climbing throughout the Pacific Northwest of the States, and have always found the app a joy to use. I've taken it hiking in Scotland and was pleasantly surprised to find the OSM maps as one of the sources. Great job!

    Trialled this app using OpenCycleMaps and had no hesitation in buying the full version. Used the full version in conjunction with Google Maps on a Galaxy 4S to navigate almost flawlessly on a recent trip through the Middle East and Eastern Europe

    Very slow loading. Kept jumping to Mid West America. Somewhat inconvenient when I am in British Midlands.

    I do have a question. Using it on my Samsung Tab and Phone. Looking at buying the Garmin Glo unit which is a bluetooth GPS receiver that recives both the USA and Russian GPS signals and sends them to a blutooth enabled device. This will help save the battery on the Samsung devices and allow for a much better GPS signal than the chip set in the phone and tab. Do you know if this will work with
