    "No Limits"


    If you usually engage in outdoor activities, trips and other adventure sports, you'll be in need of a great GPS tool to help you locate yourself, track friends, and create routes and paths for your outdoor pursuits.

    PathAway is a highly complete application that provides users with plenty of useful tools for outdoor navigation. With PathAway, you'll be able to create your own maps and download others from the Internet using GPS, plus make the most of your activities by adding photos and descriptions everywhere you go.


    It's obvious that PathAway is a comprehensive app designed to bring users the best navigation experience. It will accompany them anywhere they go.

    The app uses many kinds of maps (street, aviation, topographic) and allows you to track anything you want, even in the background. The tool for creating routes is detailed and complete and it includes alarms to help you figure out when you're going off track or reaching your desired location. It also lets you set points and take pictures for future referencing.

    Besides all the utility options, PathAway also includes customization features to improve the user experience. Create your own dashboard, change route and track line colors, and move around all the icons so the screen looks the way you want.


    The main issue with PathAway is that design and usability aren't exactly on par with the content it provides. There isn't an interactive tutorial (which would be much more useful) and the instructions provided are too text-heavy and can't even be read properly with a smarphone device (you can't zoom in and out, just swipe to the sides).

    In addition, the design doesn't look ultra professional and the whole app looks a bit chaotic; it doesn't really make things easier for users, even though it provides an amazing set of features.

    This app has potential, but the demo is so neutered that you can't test it's features without paying. I'd be happy to pay $35 for a good navigation app, but I'm not going to pay to find out if it's any good. The design is awkward and overall poorly fitted to mobile use, which is unfortunate in a mobile platform. All the key functions I'm looking for seem to be listed, but route planning was clunky on a 5.5" screen. Needs integration with computer for planning, map loading and editing. It might be worth the investment, but it simply feels to amateurish at first look to warrant the risk.

    I was expecting a turn by turn navigation. It is a must for the pro's version price. A Straight line guide is pretty much not enough nowdays. No garmin maps support avalable....

    Takes a little getting used to but seems accurate. However, I have purchased the upgrade of this app last year but now no acknowledgement so need to purchase again. No way to get money back as far as I can see.

    First off, this app won't import KML or KMZ files, which then requires the user to convert them files to GPX files, a time consuming and unnecessary step. Although the app has gazillions of features, I don't really need 75% of them, so it becomes a cluttered and difficult app to learn how to use. Help manuals are vague, and I've yet to receive a reply from the developers on their forum. Would like my money back.
