Needs improvement Why can this application not be moved to SD card? The maps are large files and take up too much space on the device memory.
This is the perfect means for me to give peace of mind to family and friends while I'm out in the wilds. I can lay bread crumbs on maps for family and friends to follow. I can message my status. Together with the required paper topo maps I'm secure in my location. There is a "emergency" button to send out a call for help -- with my map coordinates. I found it to be helpful on road trips with the ability to message when needed in the desolate, beautiful areas of the West on family road trips. I even arranged with my insurer for the possibility of roadside service via messages if not in cell range. Customer service is very good. The rep sent me a new device when I found mine to be unstable. It was here in two days, well in advance of a planned backcountry trip.
Good app. I wish there was a way to search for a point of interest or a way to type in a gps location
Useful I've been using this app to navigate the Appalachian Trail via road crossings as I provide support to a teen hiker. It is the best way I have to find the smallest gravel roads that go into the most remote locations. It even works when I have no cellular phone service. I would love to see it with a search option.
Firmware update not possible from this app. Sadly no way to update the firmware within this app. In this new world where everyone has a tablet, fewer have pc or laptops ... this is a problem
