    For any one who explores the back woods, hunts, or fishes hidden creeks for trout this is a must have app. Switch between layers to get the detail you need. You can D/L maps so when your not connected to internet you still have the maps you need

    Was on a backpacking trip for four days but wasnt able to track the entire trip since the app would constantly crash and stop tracking. It would crash almost 90% of the time when I tried to use the camera and at other times it would crash and close even though I made sure all other apps were closed and only gps active (on airplane mode)

    Currently halfway done with a thru hike of the cdt and loving this app. Inexpensive, easy to use and covers all functions that I need: downloading maps along a track, ease of switching map sources, simple interface

    I tried several other similar apps and this is my favorite. I use it to keep from getting lost in deep woods and I've made it home every time so far....
