One of the main reasons I love this app is the National Geographic map. It is a map that shows a whole lot of creeks, streams, and other permanently flowing waterways that are missing or totally lacking on basic road maps such as Google, Bing and the like. Remember folks you can only survive two or three days tops without water. No real since in dying of thirst and you're only 1/3 of a mile from a watercourse you never knew was there.

I loved this app the way that it was before they updated it, since then there have been a few problems. Occasionally, it cannot find the coordinates that I add in, but the larger problem is that when I add coordinates IT DOES NOT GO TO THEM! You have to then zoom out and out and out until you find the little dropped point (which is your coordinate that you just put in) and then you have to zoom in and in and in to get back to the spot. If they fixed that, I would enjoy it a lot more and recommend it to other people!

Crashes a bit.. Some of my outside agency served and personal maps won't load or display. Known addresses fail in search and can't be geolocated in the app, but Google and others have no problem. Says can download maps for offline use, but no provision to do so. Testing to use as GIS, SAR, and emergency management tool, but varies widely in response, ability, and function.
