    Would give 5 stars if it didn't crash so often.. at least it recovers well after a crash when I'm out on the trail.

    This app may be useful, but it is a money pit beware. Especially when it said something about public and private maps layers. After purchasing it tells me on their actual website it is only for western states. Complete waste of money. Don't get duped like
