Unbelievably bloated and intrusive... ... but I've bought a load of maps for it now so unlikely to uninstall. Would be great if they brought out a less resourse intensive "lite version" for people who just want to know where they are without having loads of menus and trendy social media "lifestyle" twattery. How about dealing with simple issues, e.g. the zoom buttons being near invisible in some sections of OS map? Nah, lets add in some "augmented reality" bs instead
Brilliant I have use this regularly for several years for cross country cycling. While I would continue to recommend it, I do find more recent updates less intuitive and I'm often wasting time trying to figure out how to do basic tasks like find routes or change maps.
Best outdoor app New skyline feature is great for seeing what's around you. Navigation is easy and there's plenty of routes to share and download. Been using this app for about five years I think! Nothing has replaced it.
Great tool This app is surprisingly accurate compared to others. It went fine on my old S5 and it's working great on my S7. Picks up your location in under a minute even under a reasonably deep canopy. Love it
Warning: Skyline may not work on your phone I was looking forward to skyline but the program abruptly told me that my new Huawei P9 lite didn't have a gyroscope so tough: it doesn't work. It turns out that many phones do not have a gyroscope. So don't build your hopes too high.
Brilliant! Really appreciate having easier access to download map tiles in this new version.
INTRODUCING SKYLINE: Bring your outdoor map to life with Skyline, our new augmented reality technology. Using your camera it will identify key features around you such as peaks, places, and lakes. Skyline helps you navigate too. See waypoints and follow direction arrows for routes on the real landscape. (Note: No Skyline coverage in Alaska)
- A new Map Options panel.
- New waypoint icons for POI's and Waypoints.
