    Excellent app. Would be nice to have tones to let me know when I lose/regain satellite since I live in very mountainous terrain. I often used this app as a map and compass rather than a gps since sattelite signal was sketchy, nice that I had that option.

    Has full features, with excellent support. Continually improving. Been using it for many years. I can't say enough about it, and no, I don't own stock in the company...

    I use this app to track my route, distance and speed when trail riding my horse. Works well and i can compare tracks across multiple parks/trails.
