Way too complicated. Manual doesn't seem to match ap, so can't figure it out. Walked around Pinnacle Lake to test it, and current position never budged from me cabin location. Didn't seem to work with gps. Managed to put a test waypoint on there, and now all it does is tell me I'm approaching the waypoint over and over. No way to delete test waypoint. Don't see this working for me.
Very useful for hiking in areas that have many trails and sparsely marked trails. Thoughtful use of waypoints provides a clear picture of where you have been and where you want to go. This app can greatly reduce the chances of getting lost. The information it gives is also fun to use. I really do like this app.
So far have been very impressed with this, especially since it uses the UK Ordnance Survey maps. It is very complicated to use but worth the effort to get it working - I didn't read the manual (tried!) but managed to get it to work by fiddling around with the settings. Downloading the area before a walk means being able to trace the route on the go. Would be difficult, as well as expensive, to get a signal on Dartmoor so this is the perfect fix. The OS maps are brill and for around £5 for one year, very cheap.
I use this app for Adventure/Dual Sport motorcycling, many times off highway with no cellular data connection. I can download an area where I'm going to be riding and it is great to have the map on my phone without spending several hundred dollars for a GPS.
Went hiking in Austria for a week and offline maps with this app worked great for me. It helped a lot. I do miss planning functionality. Not sure if heights are always accurately given, but that might be a GPS things. All in all it did what I expected. I had a great hiking experience without worries about where I was and where to arrive.
I've tried quite a few hiking apps and this is by far my favorite! It's easy to use, has awesome maps with excellent detail and has a lot of neat utilities. I love that I can use it in areas where there is little to no cell reception.
