This app rocks I'm often without cell coverage on my dirt bike while trail riding but now I am never lost!
Misleading developer Why can't this developer say up front that this is a TRIAL APP that expires after a few days. Check the about screen on settings. I put a lot of time into this app only to discover accidentally that it's a trial app.
5+ Stars from an avid hiker and trail mapper I believe in the whole "product review" process and I always read them before making a purchase. That being said, I LOVE this app! I'm an avid hiker and trail mapper and this app (pro version) is as good as my Garmin 76CSX* trail mapping GPS with external antenna. The only downside is this wonderful application is soley dependent on the quality of your mobile device (smartphone). I use a LG G3 and sometimes I will lose satellite connection when I'm in heavy canopy. Once I'm clear the phone will pick the Sat connection back up. I feel that the My Trails app is somewhat erroneous when it comes to measuring distance traveled. Here again, its most likely the device being used, "garbage in garbage out". When everything is working right (which is most of the time) the application performs with pin point accuracy. Storm'in Norman Schwartzkopf would have loved this application for his bomb drop missions during Gulf War two. UPDATE 7/14/15 I recently purchase a used Garmin Glo GPS receiver to use with my smartphone. The data from the MyTrails app is now extremely accurate.
AWESOME!! I love the new version, 2.0. Way more features and easier to use. Fully custom, better than anything else available. I recommend a 16gb sd card at the least just to make sure you have enough room. Easy to download offline maps, tells you how much data it will use while you're selecting the area. Has plenty of map sources too. You will never get lost in the woods again as long as you downloaded the map for that area. The stats screen needs to have a white background for easier viewing in sun. Still the best!
Excellent Best I have found having tried a number. The free option will show it's worth but I recommend taking the very reasonable bought option that allows storing offline maps as by definition you often don't have good signal when you most need a map. Love the way it integrates so many maps. The help is excellent take time to read it as you will find many useful features that you could miss. To plan in advance I make a trail on the pc using a suitable page that allows a gpx file to be saved and transfer that.
I used My Trails as a personal Sat Nav in a country (Turkey) with a lack of good maps and a difficult language. My Trails helped locate me in relation to walking trails in wild country, and helped me record and upload tracks I had completed for my records.
