Many years of using GPS Waypoints App to locate gold prospecting claims & recording each spot we've found gold, highly recommend it! Easy & accurate! Would be 5 stars if the app retained the "Map Waypoints" selection and "Trail" visibility when I need to add a new Waypoint. After adding one, and saving it to the same folder, I have to start over to see them all mapped again. Re-selecting Trails to show is awful! (Claim boundaries for us.) Otherwise, good app for outdoor activities.

Love everything about it! Maps are great, planning a route is great, everything is great EXCEPT: If I record a track, I can't go back and view the stats for said track (max speed, average speed, total distance, etc), and if I forget to turn off track recording when I get back to my car (I use this app while sailing), I cannot go back and edit the track to get rid of the section that got recorded while driving.

Hi Ed, The total distance, date, duration, track name are all shown on your trail list and on every trail map. View those stats anytime, even while recording. If you REALLY NEED to erase just a section of a recording, you can export your trail as a gpx or kml file, edit the file, and import it. email if more help needed.

It can't legally claim to be survey grade software, but I've used it numerous times in the field, gone back with surveyors and have been within a few feet. This will obviously not be the case when covered by a dense canopy, but even then you can get a fundamental bearing (pun intended) of accuracy. I upgraded for the extra features once I discovered the benefits of the app.
