While the maps themselves are very useful (despite having many non-existing road and not having those that are there), the navigation app is a complete garbage. In fact, it could be even dangerous if you rely on tracking your movements. All of a sudden, your valuable track just disappears after the app crash, without being saved. The old app was a bit better in this case. A call to a technical support brought up a ridiculous suggestion to manually save your track from time to time. Second thing: if you have your tracks and points saved in an old app - you are doomed. Despite the promise to be able to see them in this app, the server they are stored is scrapped, and there is no way you can retrieve them, not by exporting them, not by "sharing" them via facebook or twitter. Third: interface, search - none of that is well thought or even working properly. My advise: stay away from this app, there are some others that use their maps, but have a decent navigation

We have not had this issue reported to us before, and we'd certainly like to work this through for you. Could you share the details at And any relevant screenshots would be immensely valuable. Thank you.

This app is mediocre at best. When it's working, I'd say it's a 6/10 due to the inability to set your download zoom level, general problems with the UI and other major bugs with the app. But wait, it gets worse... I was using this app for a couple months made a bunch of breadcrumb trails and marker waypoints and then one day the app just stopped being able to launch. I unfortunately had to uninstall the app and once I reinstalled all of my data was gone. At least it launches now! 🙄

Great app. A real nice companion for any outdoorsman. Lots of layers and choices for what you want to find or see when your out exploring those back roads. This would be great if it was compatible with the new Samsung Galaxy 5 Pro Smartwatch.
