A very good app, with possibility the best maps I've encountered so far (clean, crisp, graphically pleasing, with near 3D feel). Altitude data most accurate of all navigation apps I've tried. Works great with Garmin, not sure about other brands. The only thing that bothers me is the occasional mix of German and English language, but let's hope the developers will eventually work out this glitch.

I had used this on hikes in Austria and I found it to be very reliable. It also works very well and very accurately in Canada where I live. So much better than Google etc for off-trail areas. No annoying ads. I have now used it in Australia with very accurate results.

"A problem has occurred" everywhere. Can't download gpx, can't rename a route, sometimes can't even save it :/
