    * Shoot video and geotag it to an exact location on a map. Save videos to YouTube account.
    * Convert lat/long coordinates to UTM and NAD 27 map datum to sync with paper maps for advanced navigation in the field.

    Extremely versatile hunting app. Wish it had Topographic Maps though. Terrain just doesn't have the detail needed for mountainous areas. Topo would make this a complete package and apparently does with the Pro upgrade and a little work on your part.

    I have used this app for over a year now. Easy to use and getting to look at my race stats keeps me motivated to go faster. Great Free App.
