    Uk use - excellent way of browsing OS 1:25000 and 1:50000 maps. Areas can be selected for download and used offline when out in the mountains. Amazingly, there is no per tile subscription or fee for this service - a different model to the OS's own very expensive app, which I guess has extra functionalities - but hey, I don't need them. Backcountry Navigator is the real deal for adventuring / mount

    have used it a few times and really like it..takes some learning to get around with what the button symbols are but has good instructions.

    Day hike in Colorado as a hobby whenever I am in the state. Love to turn on my BackCountry Navigator and track the trip. Easy to use and records great information.

    I use this at work laying out natural gas pipelines. I use it when out of town with my family to look around areas where we stay. I love the access to multiple map sources. I use Google Nexus 7" v1.

    Before I got this app, I purchased a Garmin ETrex 20 for about $160. The ETrex is a great improvement over my 15 year old Garmin GPS III, especially because you can download free topo maps into it from GPS File Depot. I found, though, that the small screen on the Etrex was frustrating to use at times if one has experience using large paper topo maps, which also have their drawbacks. On an impul

    Great app after a bit of a learning curve, so don't give up! This might be a dumb question but in the compass, why is the 'S' ( for South) reversed?

    Just returned from a 45 mile of the JMT and loved the BC Nav Pro app. I had populated the map with known campsites before the trip and it was incredibly convenient to be able to plan a night's stay without searching for a flat campsite. My only request would be to be able to input waypoints on a PC and have them sync with my Samsung Galaxy.

    My Galaxy S5 Active has all the features of a dedicated hand held/hiking GPS, and a much bigger screen. Extra cost topo maps have all the trails I use, so far. Galaxy's bright screen can be zoomed and read in bright daylight. GPS turns on and locates current position in just a few moments. Love this software and my new phone!

    I use this app on Lake Powell in Utah. Regular lake maps are ok for daytime boating, but finding your way at night, when you have an emergency, can be very stressful, if not imposible. We just record a track when headed out to our favorite camp site, staying clear of shorelines and obstacles. Then later, if we need to go back to the marina at night, we just follow the same track back. Even in the

    Perfect for me when hiking local, short trails.

    Great for backcountry wanderings. They don't follow Android interface conventions, so it takes a little longer to learn.

    This is the best app for hunters, hikers, anything outdoor. I use it for hunting. While scouting I trace my route, mark when I see "game" after days/weeks of scouting it's very easy to review prone location for the game I'm hunting. 10 stars easy!
