    Used this for a hunt this weekend and it worked very well. Downloaded the topo maps for our area and used the app to follow ridges and mark the location of tracks etc. Highly recommended...does use a lot of battery if you leave your GPS on but I was able to use it all day by only getting occasional position fixes.

    I have been using this app since it appeared, firstly as a demo and them as a pro user. Its the best topo mapping app bar none. It has proven its worth both in the UK, Europe and now in Brazil.... and it keeps getting better. Top marks.

    With this app there is no need to ever purchase a GPS. Topo maps are USGS, zoomable, etc.

    I use this frequently in the UK. Once you hit on downloading tiles to use as your off line map then you are away. Especially helpful is the seamless change from the Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 to the OS 1:25,000 as you zoom in for greater detail. It can also be useful sometimes to get less detail by switching to OSM mapping. Also found it a valuable resource travelling abroad - little need for local

    The app works very well and is quite intuitive. The "help" within the app is substantial. It is easy to use, does what it's supposed to do and does it quite well. It falls flat on two areas. 1) Recording all your trip information is usually because you want to share it. BCNav says it can upload your data to EveryTrail, however EveryTrail is DEAD! The site doesn't work, the upload doesn't wor
