    I feel like a beta tester trying to use this app with the accuterra subscription. In order to get the huge accuterra maps on your removable drive you must root your android phone and fix a script file. I tried the B.C.N workaround to this issue but the downloaded accuterra maps were corrupt. (It takes MANY HOURS to download accuterra maps). I rooted my phone and gave back country navigator root ac

    App is awesome. Super useful. Compass rotation stopped working after upgrade to Android 5.0. I downloaded a compass only app to verify and it works fine. I checked all my compass and rotation settings but nothing fixed the issue. Request you restore compass functionally as its critical to navigation. *Update* I removed and reinstalled the app again and it is now working.
