I'm using this APP for maps that I ATV and travel on in the Black Hills of South Dakota. So far it is been very helpful. I have found it a little difficult on learning how to download maps. Once I've learned it was easy to do. The map must be specific on the title or you will not be able to find it. I went directly to the Black Hills national forest website to download the maps I needed. It also let me download the South Dakota Game fish and Parks hunting maps.
A huge supply of very poorly labeled maps, but once you sift through, and spent anywhere from $0.99 to $9.99 for various Maps that you don't really need, you'll eventually find what you're looking for. Once you have the maps, GPS follows you very nicely regardless if you have a cell signal for your phone. There are huge list of items that could make this program more user-friendly, but if you are looking for a program that will give you a map that you can understand and show where you are on that map at all times, it does better then any of the hunting apps or other map apps I've downloaded in the past. I would strongly advise that you read the initial information and directions before you get in the app, because if you don't you will be lost inside the app. Sounds like a lot of negatives, but it still is one of the most useful apps have loaded on my device.
Great to see authentic trail maps on your phone. Has helped us navigate through Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Hudson Highlands, and Harriman. Avenza's Pro features are confusing. I signed up for these, misunderstanding what I was getting. It took a few emails, but finally Avenza admitted that their descriptions of the advanced features were misleading, and they apologized and refunded my money.
not sure i love the new measuring update. always been strange calculating areas but everything else has been great! we upload our own map materials and can communicate with numerous staff via email and the photos remain geotagged to the proper units
This app has saved my life more than once. Geo referenced OHV maps are amazing!!! This is the app to have if you ride dirt bike, quads, side by side or any off-road vehicle. Get your maps and upload the geo PDF and you're golden.
I use this app for navigation using maps that I create in arcgis. I know of no other app that can do this. I actually don't even use this smart phone for communication; I have a flip phone for that. I keep this phone to use for navigation with pdf maps so it's not even connected to cell service but it still works for this purpose. Pdf maps is indispensable to me for navigating in the woods and I have no complaints about it.
