Very useful For knowing how long until next water, campsite, etc. This said, one should not rely on it exclusively, and many of Guthook's campsites are overused or out of compliance with FS regulations. Make sure you know what you're doing out there!
Worked great until I got close to yosemite I had it working in offline mode at home before the trip. Guide looked great with campsites and water indicated on the trail. Then as I got close to Yosemite the map guide stopped loading and at best was a basic GPS device. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, shutting phone off and on. It's much too buggy to rely on and a waste of $10
Needs update and fixes Facebook test post fails and crashes app. Also app optimization on my s6 edge plus flags this app as using a huge amount of battery and resources and to uninstall.
In July 2015 I hiked the JMT with my son. I purchased the app when we arrived at Reds Meadow. I noticed a fellow backpacker looking at his map on his phone......huh? Hmmm. Nice!! It was awesome! Absolutely worth the price. Worked flawlessly all the way to Whitney! I will DEFINITELY purchase the updated version as soon as I have planned our next JMT thru hike! Mike+Mike on the JMT!!
Awesome app! Very helpful on the trail!
